She was a devoted homemaker to her family through the years and worked for many years at the H. D. Lee Company and B & D Truck Port. She enjoyed spending time with her large extended family just visiting and playing games. She also enjoyed reading, doing puzzle books, playing Bingo, and watching crime dramas on television. Her favorite things were coffee, Mountain Dew, biscuits and gravy and cookies. Everyone who knew her has many fond memories of her and how she was always there for her family and friends when they needed her. As we celebrate her life and her love for all of us let us cherish the wonderful memories she created. A memorial has been established to the American Cancer Society and may be left at the funeral home.
