She will forever be remembered as a wonderful woman full of love, laughter, and gentleness. Grandma meant a lot to me and she brought a smile to my face every time I saw her. She will be missed.

Growing up, my MeeMaw was a strong and influential member of my family. Even though through the years I infrequently saw her, I always recall how spirited and vibrant a woman she was. She will forever be the matriarch of my fathers family, and deeply missed by all of us. I love you, MeeMaw Chris
