She was a former warden of the parish, the treasurer, the one who would make sure that the church was open if you forgot your keys. She was a long time serving member of parish council. On Sunday morning, she was a reader, server and sang in the choir on any given week. The church was in many ways, her home away from home.

This speaks to the desperation and lengths that people will go in search of a better life.
