Our mother was a beautiful, graceful and loving person. She enjoyed creating a home and doing things for her children and grandchildren. She loved to work and succeeded in many careers throughout her life.
Mom was very appreciative of everything she was blessed with. She liked good food, good times, flowers, laughter and music. Her major passion though was politics. Mom changed with the times and the situations that were presented to her and faithfully persevered. We enjoyed her so very much and are so thankful she was “our” mom. She will be truly missed, but always remembered and forever loved.
A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 11 a.m. at the Atlantic United Methodist Church in Ocean City. Friends may call one hour prior to the service. Rev. George Patterson will officiate. Interment will be at the Storie Cemetery in Jamestown, Tennessee at a later date.
A donation in her memory may be made to: Coastal Hospice at the Ocean, P.O. Box 1733, Salisbury, Maryland 21804. Arrangements are in the care of the Burbage Funeral Home in Berlin.
