Hayden family, I am so sorry. I worked with DeWanna at Riser. She was a kind, giving lady. You are in my prayers.

My heart is heavy hearing about the passing of Mrs. DeWanna. She was always one of my highlights every Sunday and Eros UMC. She was a precious lady and I know you will all miss her terribly.
I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

Love in Christ,
Sherrybeth Staggs Fairbanks
