Memories Timeline


  1. Our Prayers are with the family. May the Lord keep each one under his wing. May the Lord help ease your pain

  2. I am thankful for the time that my mom & dad (dale and joyce), my husband (kent), and I were able to spend with Memaw just before Christmas. We sat at the kitchen table and wrote down some of her favorite recipes. She said when I came back to visit that we could write down some more. I am sorry we did not get the chance. Missing Memaw already.

  10. To All of Mrs. Worley’s family memebers:

    We would like to say that we are sorry for the loss of a great woman that loved everyone she came to know. We live right across the street from The Worley’s. We have lived across from Lucille and Glenn for many years. We would always see Lucille out at her birdfeeders. My son (who is 4 yrs old) would always call her Lady Worley or just friend. She would just laugh and wave at him and he would be happy that he saw her. We will miss her greatly and dearly. Yet, we know that she is looking over us and is still looking and taking care of her birds.

    Dianne and I are so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs. Worley. We pray that God will give you his peace and comfort in your time of sorrow.

  14. Lucille was such a dear, fine, sweet person. I feel so blessed to have been her neighbor and her friend. Her home and heart were always open to me. I knew Lucille less than three years, but I loved her and I know she loved me too.

    She and Glenn epitomized the truest love story you could ever hope to see. She had a heart big enough to encompass her extended family and her ‘adopted’ family. Lucille’s religious convictions inspired me. I miss her so much.
