Lockett accepted Christ at an early age and was a member of Wheeler Chapel Full Gospel Baptist Church – Courtland, AL.   Lockett’s love for God was evident in the life she lived and shared with family and friends.  On September 26, 2014 Lockett departed this life after a short illness at the National Healthcare Corporation (NHC) – Moulton, AL.

Lockett’s passion in life was her love for God, fishing, canning, knitting and cooking.  One of her favorite bible scriptures was Romans 12:2 – And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
