She was a pastor’s wife for over 30 years and loved serving God alongside her husband. Dessie was a homemaker most of her adult life. She was a stay at home mom that loved every minute of taking part in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren’s lives. When her children were in school she delighted in being a room mother and helping with all the class parties. Dessie was known by most everyone as “Nana” and the best chocolate pie maker around.
