She served as Minister of Music, church organist, pianist, local and jurisdictional praise and worship leader, sunshine band president, evangelist missionary, Sunday school teacher, member of the mother’s board and church administrator.
Mother Eason was a woman of wisdom whose message to everyone "It's All About Him!" She truly loved people, but most dear to her ministry was "Caring For The Senior Mothers" and "Investing in Our Youth." After months of enduring afflictions as a "good Soldier," God summoned His servant. On Sunday June 2, 2019, at 8:50pm, Mother Mildred Loman Eason received an Angelic Escort from earth to glory. Her great legacy and contributions to God, her family, Jurisdiction and the saints whose path crossed hers will never be forgotten.
