We rejoice with Billie as she is home. When we came to First Christian Church she was one of the first people to welcome us, she helped teach us the duties of the office of deacon, communion preparation and guided us as we reinvented our ladies group. She was a strong faithful member of our congregation. She loved First Christian Church, but most important she loved Jesus! Because of that, Billie is in our future! I pray her family has sweet memories and a peaceful heart. God bless each of you!

We are so sorry to learn of Billie’s death. We worked with her at the newspaper and loved this sweet, precious lady. Our prayers, thoughts and hearts are with all of her family members. She was a true lady and had a heart as big as Texas. It was always a joy to run into her and get to visit and hear about the family she loved so dearly. She will be greatly missed.
