COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A church in Columbus honored its older member during its monthly food bank distribution on Saturday.

Corinth Missionary Baptist Church celebrated 96-year-old Beatrice Spencer. The church's mission circle, which is named after Spencer, gave away free food to the public.

Spencer was crowned 'queen for the day' on what was named "Beatrice Spencer Day."

Spencer served Corinth Missionary for over 75 years and brought family and friends together in the spirit of love.

She has 11 children (two deceased), 28 grandchildren, 62 great-grandchildren, and 11 great-great-grandchildren.
