She and her late husband, Jack Neese, started and pastored five home missionary churches in MS and MD. She was a nurse for over 25 years. She helped raise several foster children and opened her doors to countless others. She was always showing love and compassion to those in need. She started Wings of Faith Ministry which helped many people and included a food bank.
