Emma Jean Herndon “showed up” for life. Whether that was teaching AWANA, Sunday school or being a part of prayer committee. She enjoyed baking for any occasion and you couldn’t leave her house without taking a little treat with you. She worked very hard throughout her life and even into her late 80s was a caretaker for several elderly folks.
