  • There are so many memories – she had so much love for all her family. Loved her hugs! May all of us remember her and Uncle Ray always along with the rest of our loved ones who are now sharing another special Homecoming in Heaven! Love, Hugs and Prayers from Texas! God’s peace be with you!

  • I’m so sorry for this loss. I had the privilege of attending 2 churches with the senior Champers; Alliance and Mount Vernon. They pretty much sat in the same place in both buildings. 🙂 What delightful people. I’m so thankful for the children they gave us too!

  • As their associate pastor at Mount Vernon, I was privileged to visit the Champers on a number of occasions. I always felt uplifted spiritually as a consequence of my visits. She was always a sweet, welcoming person to me. I cherish my memories of her and Ray. Bless you and your family, Lester.

  • Our thoughts and prayers for all of you from ERIC and Kellie Anderson and the USNaz family.

  • Oh the memories. The 3 sisters are reunited in heaven, planning the great Willett reunion in glory. 64 years of reunions here on earth, forever in glory! Will miss her humor, her sewing creations and her cooking. Such a legacy to be remembered.

  • Our prayers are with you all. May God heal your hearts. She is now in the Fathers presence and with your dad.

  • My sympathy and love to the Champer family. Pauline’s husband was my husband’s Sunday School teacher when he was growing up in the Alliance Naz church. Her daughter Carol attended Canton First with us many years ago. A wonderful Godly couple who’s influence will live on throughout eternity.
