Her best friends were Miss Inell Gunnell of Natchez, and Miss Betty Herrington Pryor who resided at Plainview Assistive Living where Mom last lived.

Both Mike and Sandy Herrington are like her own children.  They cared for her during her final illness.  We are grateful to them.

We are also grateful to Tracey Floyd, the Director of Plainview Assistive Living, where Mom passed away.  We are also grateful to her care provider Carol Devine.

Mom was a member of Immanuel Church.  She believed in the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Mom was a self-taught accountant and the perfect role model.  She gave everything possible to her children.  She loved Natchez, her church, her friends, and her family with all her heart.

Graveside services will be held at Greenlawn Cemetery, on Morgantown Road in Natchez, on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, at 10:30 a.m.  A reception will be held after the graveside service at Immanuel Baptist Church, 61 North in Natchez.

She will be sorely missed.
