Please pray for the Corson and Murphree families this week. SIFAT cofounder Sarah Corson’s mother, Mrs. Winnie Murphree, passed away Monday afternoon at the age of 100. Mrs. Winnie, or Granny as she was known around SIFAT, was a retired schoolteacher and United Methodist pastor. She blessed the lives of many people in Randolph County and seemed to have a positive impact in everything she did. For years, Granny was active at SIFAT, even traveling to Bolivia when she was in her 70s! She will be missed by all of us.

Visitation will be Thursday, Jan. 27 from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. at Benefield Funeral Home in Wedowee, Ala. The funeral will be on Friday, Jan. 28 at 2 p.m. at Wedowee First United Methodist Church. A graveside service will follow at the cemetery in Wedowee.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial donations be made to SIFAT or the Wedowee First United Methodist Church.
