America that she witnessed when she worked as a secretary in Bicknell. Always thankful for the Asbury Chapel community of her childhood, she was an active member of the Bicknell Methodist Church while her health allowed and had served as Sunday School teacher, Superintendent of the Primary Department and a board member.
