Condolence to the family. I lived across the street from her on Preston. She was such a good friend to all of us. A very fun & humorous lady. Her mother sewed for many of us. I have talked on the phone with her while she was at a nursing home on Highland in Jackson. I live in Indiana & I will miss her. In loving memory, Judy Carver DeBerry Egbert.

I am so sorry for the loss of my friend Ethylee Hammonds. We became friends when I worked for the Mac Club at JMCGH. I have been trying to locate her since she left Jackson Meadows years ago. All of this time she has been residing at Lexington Manor in Lexington TN, the town that I live in, without my knowledge. I loved her! She enjoyed life and had a wit about her that everyone loved! RIP my dear friend!!
