We are so sorry to hear of your mother's death. She lived a long enjoyable life and we were privileged to be a part of her life. We enjoyed visiting with her in Siloam, at Betty and Alvin's and occasionally at our home in Jonesboro. We always tried to see her at Christmas and enjoyed exchanging cards with her. She will be missed but all of you have memories to cherish. Love, Martha and Frank

I am so sorry to hear about your mother's death. My prayers are with all of the family. I always enjoyed her music and joyful spirit. Her musical talent to play almost anything she heard was amazing and a joy. Her fingers always seemed to just float over the keyboard.

Am sorry to hear of your mother's death. Our prayers go out for each of you in your sorrow. Though only a comparative few years younger we always looked up to "Miss Nina" Our parents held her and Floyd in high esteem. God Bless you all.

My thoughts and prayers to all the family. Mrs. Corry had an impact on my life, she was such a kind person. I remember she gave me the book "Hans Brinker and the Silver Skates" when I was in the 4th grade, I have never forgotten that. She made each student feel so special. It was a joy to have her for a teacher and someone to look up to. I will also remember her playing "Stars and Stripes" on the piano as we all used to come into the old gymnasium for chapel services. She was a very dear lady, and I will always remember her.
