My greatest memory of her will always be how she took so many into her home. That includes letting me live with her and taking me in so I could get out of the city life. She definitely was always there for me. She by far was the greatest aunt ever. Much love Aunt Becky ❤

I will always remember riding the school bus with her, going to, and from. Matthews High School. She was so sweet and always had a smile on her face, and a delightful personality. I'm sure she has a bigger smile even now, as she is with her King! Rest in peace. Sweet Friend, love cheri
