Many cups of coffee or Dr. Pepper and home cooked meals were shared along with home spun wisdom and stories about her life's adventures. The picture of a servant's heart, Granny's greatest joy was creating a home full of love and laughter for her family and friends. Her wisdom, stories, and laughter will be remembered by all who were blessed to have her in their lives.
