She loved drinking coffee, flowers, late night Bible reading, puzzles, and she could make a pan of biscuits that could put Hardees to shame! She always spoke the truth and never beat around the bush.

Those left to cherish her memory include her children, Linda Miles, Joe Skipper (Nancy), Gary Skipper (Kathy), Terry Skipper (Cookie), and Brenda Dixon (Michael); seventeen grandchildren; thirty-seven great-grandchildren; and other relatives and friends.
