She was a loving mother, grandmother and “Nana.” She was the most unselfish person who was always helping someone who needed something. She worked as a caregiver for 20 years.

She loved her family and friends and they loved her. She loved her flowers in spring and summer and mowing the yard. Her neighbors all knew something was wrong if she wasn’t working in her yard. She also loved to bake, and was known for her pear bread and her embroidery of cup towels.

Pallbearers will be Harold Darity, Seth Wright, Rex Nodine, Quincy Nodine, Bruce Kelley and Bill Wright.

Should the date for The World's Largest Garage Sale be changed from the third weekend in July to sometime in October to take advantage of cooler weather like we had this past weekend?

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
