All who had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Yelverton would agree that she was definitely a faithful servant.

"... (the) Lord said ... Well done, good and faithful servant; thou has been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord." Matthew 25:23
