The body will be taken to her daughter's home, Robin Batten, on Riverside Rock Road, for visitation this evening starting at 6. A funeral will be held Saturday morning at 11 at Riverside Chapel Baptist Church with the Rev. Randy Wainright, the Rev. Edward Colley and the Rev. Reggie Herrin officiating. Burial will follow in the family plot at Bethlehem Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Wallace and Marty Crews, Robbie and Randy Batten, Keith Miller and Jimmy Myers.
