She later moved her membership to Greater St. Rose Missionary Baptist Church in 1965, where the late Dr. Noily Paul Sr. served as Pastor. During this time she was a member of the usher ministry, willing workers, Sunday school, and youth department leader. God elevated her to Trustee, under the leadership of Rev Noily Paul Jr. She was also a member of Chapter #2 O.E.S. Mother was very active in the community in New Orleans and a member of the E.J. Morris Senior Center. She not only attended and supported the center, she volunteered and taught classes to other seniors at the center. Mother was very creative, and whatever she was involved she put fort her best effort. In 2005, due to the devastation of hurricanes Katrina and Rita, she returned to Batchelor Louisiana, and became a member of Good Faith Baptist Church. A visionary and fervent servant, she was always seeking ways to improve, increase and uplift, God’s church. She immediately began serving and organizing activities for the youth and members of Good Faith Baptist Church, until she became ill and could no longer serve. Mother always loved her church. She found so much peace when she studied God’s word, and worshipped as she sung His praises.
