Ms. Comans was raised in the small community of Steele, MS, where she made her profession of faith to the Lord. Due to the very tragic death of her Mother during the Depression Era, Ms. Comans and her sister experienced God’s greatest gift of love through their Grandfather and Great Aunt who provided a home for them in the community in which they lived. Ms. Comans was always grateful for the love that abound to them as they grew up in the Steele Community.
Ms. Comans was very dedicated to her three girls who she loved immensely. They were her world. She made sure she carried out her responsibility and commitment to the Lord as a Mother and raised her girls teaching the scripture and applying the scripture to those teachings.

James 5:10-11 (NIV)
10 Brothers and sisters, as an example of patience in the face of suffering, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord. 11 As you know, we count as blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of Job’s perseverance and have seen what the Lord finally brought about. The Lord is full of compassion and mercy.
