I only met Mrs. Prewitt a couple of times, but she is a very sweet and caring person. May she rest in peace and her soul be eternal in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Mom Prewitt was always curious and a life-long student. Whether it was gardening, nutrition, quilting, healthy living, and especially her Lord Jesus, she wanted to know more and do more. She was a courageous soul and truly loved life! Her example is an inspiration to us all.

Ahhhh, sweet, sweet, beautiful Shirley!!! She was one of the holiest people I have ever been blessed to know. Her warmth and smile were second to none. I especially remember, while participating in a prayer group and not really knowing quite what to do, she looked at me, smiled, and placed a St. Benedict medal in my hand. Her kindness and love always radiated from her beautiful face!! Surely God is saying with a smile and open arms, “Well done, my good and faithful servant!”
