So sorry to hear of Aunt Sis passing away. She was always so kind and sweet. Many sweet memories growing up. My sincere condolences to Uncle Boyd and family. She will certainly be missed.

On the morning of Saturday November 2nd 2019 our lives as we had known them for as long as we have been on this earth changed and our hearts were broken.
We are conflicted in that we are saddened by the fact that she is no longer here with us but we are thankful that she no longer suffers as she had been for some time.
While we are conflicted, in our emotions, we are certain in our knowledge that we will be with her again with our Lord in Glory.
She was the finest example that Randy, Cindy, Gregory,Susan and I could have hoped for growing up. We are who we are today in large part thanks to her prayers, wisdom and guidance. Proverbs 22:6
She was known to many by many names, “Sister”,”Aunt Sis”,”Aunt Bernice”,”Queen B”and “Nanny”.
Our daddy called her “Baby”.
We were blessed to be able to call her “Mama”.

Sorry to hear of your family's loss. Met her in 1945 when we all lived at the R idge. Rode the same school bus went to the same church. Hers was a large family as well as mine and we each had a child about the same age as one of theirs, she married into the same family as my youngest sister did. My best to all the family. I think she will be greatly missed by her family and by the county,

So sorry to learn of the passing of the best classroom volunteer ever when I was Susan's 4th grade teacher at Todd Grant!! I was Mrs. Simmes back then in the early 1970s.
Our deepest sympathy to Boyd and Susan and the entire Gault family.

Wonderful neighbor for over 50 years whom I will greatly miss. My heartfelt condolences to the family and friends whose hearts are broken. She is now resting in peace and my prayers are for those left behind that need peace and comfort in your time of bereavement. She was a true Proverbs 31 lady.

Mrs. Gault, or ‘Sister’ was a true gem of a lady. She and her husband Boyd always made me feel welcome, appreciated, and were generous with their love. Her smile would light up the room and always made my day. It was my privilege and honor to provide care and be a small part of their lives. God bless Mr. Boyd and all the children and extended family. You will all be in my prayers
