Such a sweet and wonderful woman. We will miss her so much, she was always smiling, even when I knew she wasn't feeling well. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family. She will be missed!

Momma Broyles was a second mom to many of us Sunnyside children. She was loved by all that she touched. She was a very special mom in my life and still knew who I was after forty plus years. Keeping everyone in my thoughts and prayers. She gave me the love of tea with the grape Kool-aid mixed in as she would have us some when we hung out. I still make that today and will always think of her when I do. God gained another angel.
