She grew up on a farm where her primary job was to help look after her siblings and cook the family meals. As an adult, she worked at Classe Ribbon and Saxon's Candy Kitchen. She also continued to look after and cook for those she loved. Her hobbies included gardening, quilting, cooking and making everyone she knew believe they were her favorite. Mrs. Rich loved her family more than anything and treated everyone she knew as if they were just that. She had many names: Momma, Memaw, Nanny, Sister, Aunt and Friend. All can agree on one common name: beloved. Proverbs 31:10-31 Special thanks to the Alacare Hospice Staff, Cassie and Renea for their kindness and care. The family would also like to thank her special niece and caregiver Pam Bryant for assisting so much during this time.
