Mrs. Era or “Grannie”, as she was affectionately known by her loving family, will be sincerely missed but at the same time be fondly remembered for her unconditional love and support that never wavered. She was a faithful servant of God, which started when she was united with Bethel Baptist Church on the fourth Sunday, of June 1963. She loved tending to her garden and sewing was her passion. Grannie was an amazing woman and she will always be loved, forever missed, and NEVER forgotten!
