She was affectionately known as “Greeneyes” as a child, she grew up learning about God’s word from her grandmother who took her to church then under the leadership of the late Eld. Howard Quillen Sr. and later would come to church from time to time as she got older, under the leadership of Bishop Howard Quillen Jr.

Quillen (Bishop Howard Quillen Jr.) of Bogalusa; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
