Granny was a wonderful homemaker, beloved mother and grandmother. She was very active and dedicated to her church, the First Methodist Church in Fort Smith. She loved her church circles, Sunday school class, Pacesetters, and never met a stranger. Her favorite pastime was talking to everyone. You could leave the room, come back thirty minutes later and she was still talking as if you had never left.
The family thanks the staff of Arkansas Hospice for their special love and care for Granny. Special thanks to Kannan, and nurses Jan, Penny and David.
