Aunt Billie was a lovely woman. I fondly remember family get togethers and our Christmases we shared at my Mamaw's old house in Landis. She had a striking personality & was very warm-hearted, though she seemed quiet (to me). I love the fact that she was such an avid reader; we're kindred spirits in that regard. I enjoyed knowing her and Uncle Venon both. She will certainly be missed.

I am thinking of all the family. Love you guys.

Billie was always such a sweet and warm person. She is now reunited with Venon. I know the family will miss her greatly but treasure the good memories and just know that she is in a better place. Our condolences to y'all.

Billie was an amazing woman. She was sweet and loving to everyone she knew and was always quick to share a smile, a laugh and ask how you were doing. She loved her family and friends endlessly. God Blessed those she knew with the presence of an Angel. ...Now Heaven has received another Angel. May you rest in peace in your new home in Heaven. With condolences and much compassion for the family, I know she will truly be missed. Thomas McCora
