She was 92 years old and wanted to live to be 100 like her mother Voisy who was 99 when she passed away. But I guess God thought it was time for her to come home and rest from all her pain. She will be missed and was loved by all who knew her. Thanks to the Nurses at the Heritage House where whe was staying for taking care of her and Ginger Sherwood Farley who kept her looking beautiful and for helping us take care of her.
