Growing up she was my best friends Nana, and thats all I knew her as for years. I admired her strength and kindness. She was truly a christ-like example and really loved her family above everything. I know she is enjoying heaven right now. My condolences to her family, they are good people and I know they will miss her much.

Nana was so rare. Her personality and her heart was so pure. She was the most genuine lady ever. I’m gonna always miss you nana. Not a day goes by I don’t think of you or all our memories like you carving my first pumpkin with me, road trips, going out to eat, coloring together, watching wheel of fortune, all the holidays we had with you and birthdays and even just sitting and enjoying your presence. You were so comforting nana. You were home to me, but the Lord needed you home. Rest peacefully nana.

I met Mrs. B in 2013 at WMT. I enjoyed working with her and listening to her wise counsel. To this very day, I remember her telling me how she kept record of her money down to the penny.

Michele, I want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Nana was such a god given woman and so bright ! I loved going to her house seeing all the mail on her table and her organizing it. I loved just hearing her talk about her times in life that were so good. All the memories she had growing up. Going to woodville and seeing her house she grew up in, cleaning graves of her loved ones, and going to get ice cream after all the fun was done. She will be so missed !

My favorite memory was when nana would watch me when I was younger. We would play restaurant and she hates sprinkles. I use to take her order and she would “order” vanilla ice cream with nuts because she hates sprinkles. I would bring ice cream and wait for her to eat the ice cream (pretend of course) and I would tell her that I put sprinkles in there instead of nuts. She always went the extra mile for her family and this is just one example. We miss you nana and love you!
