As a result, Girard, Luvenia and their children, moved to San Antonio, Texas.   After arriving in San Antonio, she enrolled in a nursing class to become a Certified Nursing  Assistant.  She also encouraged some of her friends to join her nursing class.  Upon graduating, she worked at Morningside Manor Nursing Home for about a year.  On June 30, 1969, Luvenia accepted a position at the Methodist Hospital where she worked in the Pediatric Department as a nurse’s aide.  On March 29, 1991, she retired from the hospital and began private duty nursing where she cared for the elderly.    On Sunday, September 29, 1968, Luvenia joined St. Paul Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor S. H. Bedford Sr.  She served faithfully as the children's Sunday School Teacher, Choir Member, Deaconess, President of the Nurse’s Aide Ministry, Mission Ministry, Youth Supervisor and Head Cook in the church's cafeteria.  She enjoyed cooking with love.  She was always willing to serve in whatever capacity that she was needed.  She was a child of God with her BA (Born Again) Degree.  Truly, she will be missed by all those who were blessed by her presence in their lives.  Luvenia leaves to cherish her memory four children: George (Sylvia) Davidson, Detroit MI;  Argie (Spencer) Eggleston, San Antonio TX; Frang (Harry) Monk, Clermont  FL; Kennith (Pamela) Rogers, San Antonio  TX; brother, Tedro (Gertrude) Lambert, Youngstown  OH; sister, Annie Mary Adams, Cincinnati OH; goddaughter, Roselyn McCants, Birmingham  AL; adopted children;  Milton and Mary Whitehead and Charles and Julia Pryor; special friends, Arthur Philon and Mary Foreman of San Antonio TX; 16 grandchildren; 26 great grandchildren; three great great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
