Fairmont NC but always would visit Hazel Grove which was her first
love. She was a member of the Mother's Board, sang on the choir
and would visit the sick whenever she could. Everyone she met
knew that once she meets you It was always with a kiss and if she
couldn't get the cheek she would kiss the back of your hand. She
was loved and known by many. She loved to sing and her favorite
song was This Old Building. After her health started to fail and she
wasn't able to get around like she used too when you went to visit
she still looked for that kiss and she would tell you 1 Love You.
When it was quiet in the house she would begin to clap her hands
and then you will hear This Old Building even in her nineties with a
strong voice. Her strength was unmatched, her Love was limitless
and her kisses never ran out. When she had to get her point across
you better listen and there was one thing she use to say when she
wanted to end the conversation, Now That's the Ball Game, we
knew to be quiet then. She was a strong-minded person and when
she was right she would not be moved. Never showed favoritism,
truly loved the Lord and her family and everyone she meets
