Sybil Embry has been a member of Smoke Rise Baptist Church for thirty three years. In that time, she has seen a lot of changes to the church, but also personally. One of the changes was the loss of her hero, Rufus, her husband who “could do anything”. With his passing, Sybil has had to make some changes including her place of residence. When she recently sold the last of their properties, she said it was the best decision she ever made, but you won’t find her resting on her laurels. You will find her with her friends or with her dog, HERO, whom she named for her true hero, Rufus. She is still just as feisty as ever as she spreads love and laughter wherever she goes.
