A woman of integrity and one who honoured her Christian values and her Catholic faith were some of descriptions of Marie Therese Augusta Payne at a thanksgiving service for her yesterday at the Sts Peter and Paul Catholic Church.

"This lady didn't come to church to warm the benches, she was heavily involved in her church," declared Archbishop Emeritus Donald Reece in his message.

"We should be a set of people who are not just onlookers. We are to live our lives in a way that will influence the society positively," Reece charged the scores of persons who came to bid farewell to the former banker.
