Mrs. Chapman was born June 7, 1934 in Ft. Mitchell, AL daughter of the late Thomas Milford Wade, Sr. and Fannie Ola Kite Wade. She was a long-time member of Grace Baptist Church where she was the Jr. Dept. Secretary for many years. In her later years she often worshiped at Epworth United Methodist Church.
