  2. We will always remember ‘Mammie’ as a spunky little lady who in her 80’s worked in her yard and cleaned out her gutters on her roof. Also we could not forget ‘Peanut’, her attack dog if you tried to hug her. She was a special person and will be missed greatly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family.
