She was 103 years old, a wife, mother of five children, grandmother, great grandmother and great-great grandmother. A lifelong Mississippi native, our mother was well loved by her church family and her neighbors in her small town of Pearl, MS. She was a strong compassionate woman who loved the Lord, her family and friends. Her ministry included taking care of those that were ill, preparing meals and caring for children of parents in need.
