She was a devoted wife and mother who always put the needs of her family first. She enjoyed taking care of her home and had a frugal and practical wisdom that blessed her family.
She had a special way with children and was blessed to be a grandmother. She lulled many of her dear grandchildren to sleep with her special little lullaby. Her greatest joy was making memories with them.
Her door was always open and so were her arms, you never left hungry or without a warm hug. She cherished family togetherness and her joy was evident when spending time with them. Her home was filled with lots of love and laughter.
She loved preserving family moments in photos and many happy times were captured by her keen eye. She put together beautiful scrapbooks and shared them with her children.
She had a deep abiding faith in the Lord and loved Jesus, he was her best friend. She was a faithful member of the Leroy Independent Baptist Church.
