What is your role at ECC?

Administrative Assistant.

During my 26+ years at Evergreen I have seen many changes in the church, the people, the building and the ministry, but I am thankful that one thing never changes ~ Jesus is the same... yesterday, today and forever! I do not consider this a job, but a ministry in serving God and His people at Evergreen.


I have been married to Virgil for forty-eight years. We have a daughter-in-law, Eydee, who has blessed us with two precious granddaughters, Ellee and Adelynn.


I try to use my free time for the Lord: making greeting cards for birthdays and anniversaries of Evergreeners, tending to the flowers around the ECC sign, and motorcycling to enjoy God's beautiful creation.
