She was a charter member of Waterville Baptist Church.

Davis-Wooten and husband, Wiley, Bernice Boring and husband, Wilburn, LaVerne Easterly and husband, Jack, Laura Bennett, Katherine Gibson and husband, Steve, all of Cleveland and Brenda Medlin and husband, Ron, of Nashville.
The funeral will be conducted at 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 29, 2007, in the chapel of Fike Funeral Home with the Rev. Samuel D. Melton and nephew, the Rev. Stan Gibson, officiating.
Interment will follow at Sunset Memorial Gardens with her nephews serving as pallbearers. Her brothers-in-law and uncles will serve as honorary pallbearers. The service will conclude with a white dove release ceremony.
