She resided in Memphis Tn, and Slayden Ms, before retiring to Tishomingo County and living on the lake just above Colemans Park. She loved her family and her many friends. She married William Albert Highland in 1961, she saw lifes bigger picture and knew that living was the most important part, On finding out she was dying with lung cancer, she said "There are little children dying at St. Jude with the exact same thing, I have had 62 years to enjoy my life". She was my second-mother and is greatly missed.

I saw a bluebird today sitting on a window sill, he had a tear in his eye and could not sing, his melody, his heart was just like mine, breaking, because you are not here". RH
