She was preceded in death by: sisters, Jeanette Cross and Diane Mason; niece, Gigi Pitts; and son-in-law, Tim Canoy.

The family would like to express a very large heart felt thank you to the Madison County Nursing Home Dementia Unit as they went above and beyond in their care.

Memorials may be made to Center Terrace Baptist Church.
