She is also survived by grandchildren Joshua Branch, Steven Branch, Stephanie Branch, Amber Fuller, Ashley Fish and Meghan Pannell; great grandchildren she adored and a number of nieces and nephews. Also surviving is her sister, Mildred Pannell, whom she dearly loved and a very special and faithful friend, Eunice Brown. She was known by most who knew her as Granny. She loved her Lord and her family, whom she sacrificed greatly for. She was a faithful member of Stuarts Draft Christian Fellowship for 50 years. She loved to cook. Her heart was full of a desire to help others, and would give whatever she had to someone in need. She was a mother and friend to anyone she met, and would quickly tell you when you needed a coat and hat. She was always ready to offer a hand wherever one was needed. She retired from Alcoa Corporation in Stuarts Draft.
