We were blessed to celebrate her 90th birthday in 2020, the week before covid shut everything down. That was the last time we were able to hug her. We had many visits through the window and were able to eventually visit outside six feet apart. This last year has robbed us of being able to be close to her, laugh with her, and being able to share those special memories. However, we will hold tightly to ALL the many memories we’ve had through the years and have comfort that she is smiling, laughing, and celebrating big. We love you—looking forward to that hug!

Visitation will be held at Loretto Memorial Chapel, Loretto, TN for immediate family from 10:00-11:00 a.m Burial will follow in Restview Cemetery. A graveside service will be held at 11:00 a.m. by Dr. Tom Phillips. Pallbearers will serve as grandsons.

The family would like to give a special thank you to all nurses, doctors, and staff at Lauderdale Christian Nursing Home for taking excellent care and loving our mother. Memorials may be made to Lauderdale Christian Nursing Home or St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital.
