I have known Mrs. Chambers since the late 70's because of my friendship with her son Robert. I will always remember her as a sweet lady who was totally devoted to her loving husband Brooks, as well as her three children. I know it's a sad time for the family but take comfort in the fact that she's now reunited with her husband for all of eternity.

Bonnie, Robert, and Rosemary…..I’m so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. She was so lucky to have you three caring for her in her final years. The fact that she was able to stay at home was such a gift, and I know it took much sacrifice to provide that for her. I remember her as a sweet and caring mother who volunteered in many of our early school activities. Thinking of you and wishing you peace in knowing that you were there for her until the end.
