She worked for almost 50 years and met many people whether through work, church, social gatherings or just plain shopping trips she made an impact. She was the living embodiment of love and will be remembered by all in that way; animal and human alike. Her quick wit, love of the Lady Vols with the compliment of Pat Summitt and her desire to leave the world a better place were but a small part of her trademark charm.Her memorial service will be held at 3:30 p.m. Monday, July 16, 2012, at East Ridge United Methodist Church.In lieu of flowers its her wish that gifts be made to the East Ridge United Methodist Church where she was a longtime member and volunteer.
