Mrs. Snooks was on of the most beautiful women I knew in Linden. The Stars will be shining brighter now in the heavenly night. With prayers and love to her family.
Snooks was my Sunday School teacher several times as I was growing up. She had a way of making us 'Junior' girls want to come to church and learn about Jesus. I'll miss her sweet smile and encourging words. Thank you, Miss Snooks, for giving to the Lord, I'm a life who was changed. Love, Patti
"Snooks as we always called her, was a dear friend, an encourager, a second mother to Bro. Bo and me during our twenty years at FBC Linden. Even after our retirement, she would often call just to check on us. I regret that I was not able to be there to say goodbye, but I feel certain that Bro. Bo was among the greeters when she passed from this life into heaven.
I always enjoyed visiting with Snooks and loved her sense of humor. I will miss her.
