She grew up in West Tennessee and was educated in the Haywood and Madison County schools, she graduated at the age of 16. She moved to Chicago, Illinois where she furthered her education and ultimately became a phlebotomist. She also had an entrepreneurial spirit and owned her own tavern. Later, she focused on "In Home" health care for the elderly. She was the epitome of what love is. Always willing to help, show kindness to the seemingly unlovable. She was an excellent cook and made everyone feel special. She also loved music, Blues was her favorite. Her laugh was infectious and had a heart made of pure gold. She was a family favorite, such a joy to be in her presence. You were sure to laugh heartily and eat great food. She loved God and attended churches in Tennessee: Brown's Creek Baptist Church, London Branch Baptist Church and in Illinois the Mt. Pisgah Missionary Baptist Church. She was preceded by one sister: Maggie Florence; one grandchild: Jessica and one nephew: Tremaine Anthony.
