She was well loved and respected by everyone that knew her.

Throughout her life Granny enjoyed many of the wonders that the Lord had blessed her with. She loved the Lord, her family and friends tremendously and never failed to extend a helping hand to anyone that needed it.

Her last days was made as comfortable as she could be by family members and by Dr. Robert Steward. Granny requested that we include him in this writing because he had touched her life in such a great way that she wanted him to know what his skill and compassion meant to her. She respected and trusted him which built a bond of friendship between them. Dr. Steward took time out of his personal life to visit her at home in her final days for that she and the family are grateful.

The graveside service will be held at Green Hills Cemetery.
