Although Flossie worked in a shucking house for a period of time, most of her adult years were spent as a loving wife, homemaker and devoted Christian. She could be found singing, worshiping and praising at Living Waters Assembly of God church where she was a life-long member.

She loved her family, friends and being surrounded by people. Well known as having a big heart, always helping others and living her life for the Lord. Whether related or not, she was your “Aunt Flossie.”
