Skipper; son, Skippy; ten siblings; and son in law, R.B. Miles.  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.  The family will receive friends from 10am until the 11am funeral service Thursday, November 21, 2019, at Bethel Baptist Church with Rev.
