    "Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears The Lord will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise." Proverbs 31: 30-31. Carmen Miller McNabb, a native and resident of Central, passed away Thursday evening, March 6, 2014, in Fort Worth,Texas at the age of 86 with her devoted husband at her side. She was a loving and faithful woman who devoted her life to serving in the ministry alongside her beloved husband. From their beginnings combining rural pastorates and seminary study until the end of her days, countless hearts and souls were nurtured and healed by her compassion and grace.
