Her interest included sewing, cooking, crafts and shopping. She enjoyed trips with her husband to Frisco, NC, St. Pete Beach, FL and Gwynn’s Island, VA, to their beach homes.
She was an avid supporter of her children by helping with GCHS band, cheerleading, sports, dance, and Boy/Girl Scouts. In later years, her enjoyments were her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Special thanks to her sitters Ella Bullock, Idealia Carpenter, Pam Felder, Shirley Nicholson and Bertha Webb, for their care helped her to remain in her home.
The family will receive friends 6-8pm Friday 8/26 at Echols Funeral Home, 806 Brunswick Ave., Emporia, VA. The service will be 2pm, Saturday 8/27 at Monumental United Methodist Church, 300 Southampton St., Emporia, VA. Internment at Greensville Memorial Cemetery, 1250 Skippers Rd, Emporia, VA.
