She was a member of Bethel Baptist in Moody, a loving mother, wife, sister, aunt and a loyal friend to so many. Through her complicated life, she held steadfast to her Christian values and beliefs and her generous heart and sense of humor touched so many of us. We will surely miss her but carry her passion for life in our hearts forever.

Her family would like to acknowledge and thank her entire team of doctors and the special staff of nurses in the ICU at Trinity Hospital for their special care and efforts during the prolonged illness.

In lieu of flowers, we are establishing a trust fund for her eight-year-old son, Max at First Commercial Bank c/o Roselyn Wolverton, 109 South Chalkville Rd, Trussville, AL 35173.
