In 1978, Mrs. Frost gifted the church with a memorial steeple in honor of her husband, Nathan Thomas Frost. Mrs. Frost was an active member of the Shelby County Home Demonstration Club, as well as the Calera Senior Citizens organization.
Although Mrs. Frost and her husband did not have children of their own, through the years they had a multitude of extended children as they inspired and provided activities for many area youth and young adults, such as picnics, get-to-gathers and “Winnie” roasts.
