Harold was a longtime business owner in Garrard County and a current member of the Lancaster Baptist Church, where he serves as Head Usher.

I was born and raised in Garrard Co., graduating from high school in 1971. My husband, Larry, and I have been married for 46 years. We have a son, Brent, who is married to Lynyel Sowder, a teacher in the Boyle Co. school system. Dusty and Dawson are our two grandsons.
My job opportunities include: a cosmetologist in Garrard, Boyle, and Mercer; an operator of a dairy facility for dairy cattle; a supervisor for testing and repairing products for Lexmark; sales representative for NNCC selling medical manuals to doctors and critical care nurses throughout the US and Canada; real estate agent and auctioneer in Fayette, Jessamine, and Garrard; and a book keeper for a tobacco company.
I enjoy photography and oil painting as hobbies. Music has also been a big part of my life. At age 13, I became a full time pianist at our church going on to serve in several churches throughout the area, currently at Forks of Dix River Baptist.
In February 2017, I joined the Spurlin group as the kekyboardist. I have been blessed in so many ways while working here with the Spurlin Family. I am thankful that I can share comforting music to the families who are saddened in their loss of loved ones. My spiritual life has grown deeper with this job opportunity. When you see almost daily the heartache of those suffering in their loss, you search your own heart a little more...
