She was born in Zebana, Georgia but had been a resident of Aiken County for the past 30 years. She was a retired Salad Room Manager with Western Sizzler Steak House. She was of the Baptist Faith. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, sister and grandmother. She was fondly known by everyone as "MaMa Heart". She loved gardening, working with flowers and just anything to do with her family and the outdoors. Her family stated that she was the very best "Grandma" in the whole wide world. She certainly will be missed by her family, friends and all whose lives she touched during the 73 years that God granted her on this earth.
