RICEVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 24, 2017) -- Betty Trotter was 16 years old when she began playing the piano for Spring Creek United Methodist Church. For 70 years of Sundays, the congregation has been blessed by her music.
On Sunday, Trotter’s congregation and family celebrated her 70-year ministry with a surprise luncheon, just one day before her 86th birthday.
“I can’t teach or do a lot of other things, but I can do this,” Trotter said during a party featuring a cake illustrated with piano keys. “This is my contribution.”
