A Proverbs 31 Woman

Today we will lay to rest my sister-in-law. Even though she had been battling some serious health issues this year,it was totally unexpected. K and I stopped to see her last Wednesday,and though she was having to begin physical therapy again, she had a great attitude and was ready to get going. You can imagine how unexpected the call was on Thursday that we had lost her. She was tired and went to take a nap, and as my husband said,"woke up in heaven."

To me she was the true Proverbs 31 Woman. Having lost her husband in a tragic accident 30+ years ago, she raised three fine young daughters. They are hard-working, hold high morals, and are God-fearing women. She became post-master in her small town and served her community with dignity. She helped her neighbors, loved her family, and faithfully served in her church. Her works brought her "praise at the city gate." (Proverbs 31:31b)

I loved her, love her family and we will miss her greatly. "Her children arise and call her blessed;" (Proverbs 31:29a) and so does her sister-in-law.
