Lura loved serving the church she grew up in at First Baptist Church, Dripping Springs, TX and this continued throughout her career college days while a student at the University of Southwest Texas State. She met Rodney at her first job after college while she was the Outreach Coordinator at the Arkansas State University Baptist Student Union in Jonesboro, AR. After they married, she continued serving in the churches they attended, including their current church, First Baptist Church, The Colony. Lura had a heart for missions and served on mission trips inside the United States and Belgium, as well as in Canada and Kosovo with Rodney and their children. Lura loved playing all sorts of games and “80” with her relatives. She loved to travel and she loved spending time with family and friends. Now she will love reuniting with her mother and singing with the Heavenly hosts. Lura will be greatly missed by all her family and friends. While our hearts ache, we are comforted in knowing she had a personal relationship with Jesus as Lord and Savior, and we will see her again in Heaven where there is no pain and no sorrow.
