Fennette was an example of faith through her daily living. She faithfully read the Bible and lived by its principles. Not only was her faith strong, but she was able to inspire those around her to believe in the power of faith. Whenever you left her presence, she would say, “Put God first”. She loved her church, her family, and friends. Fennette’s down home style of cooking was enjoyed by so many of her family and friends. One of her favorite pastimes was playing Scrabble with her sisters. She was a true servant of God and worked diligently in the Spring Hill Baptist Church in many capacities.
