She was a member of Hepzibah Baptist Church where she enjoyed worshiping her Lord and fellowship with her many friends there. Prior to working outside her home, she helped raise about half the children in Renfroe while their parents worked, and she loved and treated them as if they were her own.

She was a dedicated wife who took care of her husband when he was no longer able and spent the last 5 weeks of his life by his side day and night at the hospital. The majority of her work outside the home was at Wal-Mart in Talladega where she made many friends and always enjoyed her friends finding her in the store to say hello.

Her children wish to extend a special thank you to her caregiver, Polly Barclay, and Amedisys Hospice staff and special friend Jessica Catts, for the loving care and attention shown to their mother.
