Mrs. Felter was born June 9, 1928, in Franklin County to Henry Stanley Harrigill and Effie Eugenia Beaube Harrigill. She was a long-time member of Pine Ridge Presbyterian Church and attended New Beginnings Community Church.

She was a beloved Mother and Grandmother to a very large family. She loved the Lord and her family. She loved to tell others about the Lord and her family every chance she got. She loved to listen to her family play music, to crochet, and to study the Bible. She was a writer of notes and even songs in her later years. She was a hard worker and instilled this in all her children. She had a particular fondness for the Bible verse, “God is Love” and the song, “Jesus Loves Me”.
