August 7, 1969 — September 11, 2019

Her grandchildren were especially loved. She and Destin were nearly inseparable. She enjoyed waiting on him “hand and foot” and spoiling him with all kinds of things. She and Mr. Ty were hard workers and led simple lives. She had always dreamed of a family trip to Florida. They had been blessed to go in the last couple of years to make a special memory together. She enjoyed working with her hands crocheting and having a peaceful evening watching movies and tv with her family. Through the years she had attended church at First Freewill Baptist and the House of Prayer and Praise.
