She was known for her wonderful home cooking especially her meat loaf, Mexican corn bread, and strawberry cobbler.

She was a member of First Baptist Church of Lake City. Her granddaughter Faith, chose her college basketball jersey number to be number 34 because that was her Mamaw’s jersey number in high school.  Faith took great care of Mamaw and spent many hours comforting her. Emily, her oldest granddaughter, was always patient with her Mamaw and would sit and watch southern gospel music videos by the Gaithers with her. Lauren, the youngest granddaughter, took excellent care of her Mamaw during the time she lived at Lauren’s house while she was ill.  Lauren would get up early on Saturdays and Sundays and cook her Mamaw’s breakfast and make sure she had taken all her medicine, check her blood sugar, and give her insulin shots.
