She was preceded in death by a precious granddaughter, Lea Taylor; two brothers, Gertis Stevens and Milton Stevens; and two sisters, Edith Kent and Barbara Ann Hollingsworth, all of whom she adored.

The funeral service will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 29, at Cullman Heritage Funeral Home Chapel, Bro. Jeff Steele officiating, with interment in Emeus Cemetery.

Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.
