Mary Elizabeth Barnfield Fikes was born on June 25, 1930 in Uniontown, Alabama to the late Wyatt and Emma Barnfield. At an early age, she confessed her faith in Christ and was baptized at Lillie Hill Baptist Church in Uniontown, Alabama. She later joined the First Missionary Baptist Church in Uniontown, Alabama, where Reverend Anthony Trimble serves as pastor. There she was very active as a member of the Missionary Society and Senior Choir. When her health started to weaken, she moved to Phenix City, Alabama and attended the Beaming Light Baptist Church. She also resided in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
