Fourteen great grandchildren whom she adored, as well as a host of nieces, nephews, and many friends who will miss her sweet smile.
She was the heart of our family and had a feisty, but loving, way that we all treasured. She was a gifted artist, a seamstress, hairdresser, and could fix just about anything you can think of. Her happiest place was to be at the beach with the whole family, eating fresh caught crabs for hours, laughing and telling us all what we needed to work on.
She was a woman of God and loved telling her grandkids about the beauty of faith and grace. We are at peace knowing she is the most beautiful angel celebrating in Heaven, in the arms of Jesus.
We would like to thank Affinity Hospice for providing such great care of her during her final hours especially, Nurse Shea.
An abundance of gratitude, love, and appreciation, for her neice, Melody, (Tootie) Jones, who went over and above providing loving care to her, and to us all, during this difficult time.
