Naomi Lee (Lephew) Epperson
PHYLLIS JEAN (LEPHEW) ROSE
DOYLE LEPHEW
MARY LOU (LEPHEW) RAMSEY
Juanita Cameron
Shirley Harville

Parents:
GROVER CLEVE JENNINGS
and Mary Jane (Carpenter) Jennings.


They lived in a hollow up from Caney Valley Church. All her grandchildren called her J's Mommie.

We would go to her house for family dinners.
She loved to piece quilts,and quilt them. She would can many vegetables from her garden, her shelves were always filled back up.

I remember helping make taffy candy on Sunday afternoons. She would get us all involved in the making of it.
She was a wonderful Grandmother.

I will always treasure my memories of being at J's Mommie's and Pa's little house up the hollow.
We were poor, but we were richly blessed with love, and that is so much more important.
I love and miss her so much.

Thanks to each of you that visit
& leave flowers on my memorials.
It means so much to me.

God Bless You & Yours.
