Her passion for her family was infectious, and family was never just those branched by a tree. She loved deeply. Once you were in her heart, you were there forever. She carried her Southern roots from the way she talked to the way she cooked. Never too busy to throw a party and loving to entertain, she enjoyed Bunco with her Babes and dinners with her Club 57. She will be profoundly missed by her children, Debbye, Tammy, Hunt, Rodney, their spouses, grandchildren and great- grandchildren and countless others whom she adored and considered family.
