Memaw had a long career in retail sales where she enjoyed meeting people and serving their needs, eventually retiring after many years in this industry. Her biggest joy was supporting anything her grandkids and great grandkids were involved in. She was an avid seamstress who loved making quilts, baby blankets and throws for friends and family.
The family would like to express our deepest appreciation to the many doctors, home health care nurses, Visiting Angels, Hearth Hospice and the Soddy Daisy Health Care Center for taking care of Memaw.
