A loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she never missed the opportunity to celebrate life events by giving a quilt she made by hand. Her family will be kept warm for years because of her talent and generosity. She loved Disney movies and anything British.

Special thanks to the dedicated staff at Fresenius Trussville, especially Trina and Roshunda; and faithful friends Maureen Livingston, Rachel Manget and Sue Meeks. The family also wishes to thank Compassus Hospice nurse Nancy O'Neal and Visiting Angels nurses Hilari Braggs and Adama Karmara.
