Proverbs 31: Noble, strong, woman of character.

Velma Cathryn Lloyd, also known as Velma Kathryn Harris Lloyd, 94, lifelong resident of Liberty, Texas went to her Heavenly Home with the Lord on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at her residence surrounded by family and friends. She was born November 26, 1925 in Liberty to parents Fred L. Harris, Sr. and Angie Ruth Wade Harris.

Kathryn was a Woman of Proverbs 31. She was worth far more than rubies or gold. Her love for the Lord Jesus Christ her Savior was first in her life. She was strong and unashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Many times she shared Christ with strangers and they prayed the prayer of salvation. Her husband, children, and grandchildren came next, never in want of anything. She saw no difference in people. God gave her a giving spirit to the poor and disabled and those in need. Challenges did not fear her, they only made her bolder. Wisdom flowed from her heart because of her relationship with the Lord. There are many women who do noble things but she surpasses them.
