if Taliaferro County had "Citizen of Her almost daily volunteering at the Don Lancaster House, cleaning, sorting and arranging each of the donated items. Also, she was the one who suggested we only charge 10 cents per item. Who would have thought that would have been the ultimate success of the Sunshine House. All the toys, books, and puzzles etc. she arranged on tables at the Sharon Community house where those needing Christmas gifts for their children would come to make their selections for Free. Then at Easter, she not only decorated the tables for the Sunrise breakfast, but added special candies around each arrangement. Easter was special to Ms. Eva Mae! She started the Easter Egg Hunt on the grounds at Liberty Hall etc. etc..
Family, I don't know how tell you how much she meant to Taliaferro County as she strengthened our faith by teaching Bible Study and was one of the four original Christian Community Choir Members as well as designing and making the many costumes and decorations for the Easter and Christmas Cantatas. Need I say more? What must she and Don Lancaster be doing in heaven now!
Sincerely family, we loved her so much and all of you, and have you in our prayers.
