She was a member of The Pentecostals of Brunswick until about 2012 and a member of Revival Center Apostolic Church from 2012 until present.

Her greatest joy was telling people about the plan of salvation, or being baptized in Jesus name, and receiving of the Holy Ghost and the experience of speaking in tongues.

Sister Van Dyke was a wonderful and beautiful lady. She sat with my Nanny Ruby for a few years a couple of times a week before Nanny died. She was so kind to her and Nanny looked forward to seeing her. She was really like family to us. I am sure that Nanny and Sister Van Dyke are sitting around a kitchen table in heaven “catching up” today. Delores, we love y’all and pray that you have peace. Your Mom has gained her rightful reward now.
