Affectionately known to most as “Nanny” or “Dot”, she was adored and loved by so many people. While raising her family in Cotton Valley she was known to have an open door and a hot oven. Friends and kids were always welcomed with laughter and pecan sandies.
Her happiest times were in her garden, fishing, and spending time with her family. Our lives have been more colorful and each of us experienced a spirit and soul like no other. We thank you Nanny for a lifetime of memories and for the example of love, kindness, resilience, and humor.
Visitation was held Wednesday, July 7th at Rose-Neath Funeral Home in Minden from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM with services following. A private burial at Gardens of Memory followed the service. Please honor Nanny with a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in lieu of flowers.
