Her celebration of life will be held at 1:00 p.m. at Glenwood Baptist Church, 325 Saco Lowell Road, Easley on Saturday, April 21st. Friends are asked to come early if they wish to enjoy the music and pictures compiled to reflect her life. The family will receive friends immediately after the service at the exit of the church.
Those wishing to send flowers may have them delivered to the church. There has been a music scholarship established for an outstanding rising freshman at Coker in her honor and donations may be sent to Coker College for that purpose.
