She was a graduate of Gray High School in Winston Salem. She was a beloved wife, mother and grandmother. Her life centered on the family and many weekends were enjoyed with backyard barbeques, vacations camping at the beach, playing bridge with friends and fishing on her and Jim's boat off Harker's Island. After Jim's death in 1993, she moved to Denver to live with her daughter's family. She was soon diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Although mother's memory slowly departed over the years, she continued to enjoy music and dancing.
While living in Denver, mother attended Denver Baptist Church and had her faith nurtured by her friends there and her supportive son-in-law, Ron Borders. She resided at Concord Place's Discovery Program for the last four years. The family wishes to thank the many dedicated care givers who became our extended family and who mom often told "I love you"
