She was a member of Cotton Hill Missionary Baptist Church where she served as Choir Member and taught Vacation Bible School.

She was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, and great grandmother.

Her greatest joys in life were spending time with her family and members of her church family. She also enjoyed cooking large meals for our family on Sundays and Holidays.

In 1980 she began a career at Kroger where she retired in 2002. Her work friends and customers lovingly referred to her as Maw-Maw because of her contagious smile and warm personality.
