Our loving mother had a positive impact on everyone she met as well as her hometown, her treasured Tuscaloosa. She was a lifelong resident and charter member or founder of several social societies, Les Danceurs, and Jester's Mardi Gras Club, Modern Culture Club, many still growing and entertaining after 50 years. She was a member of the Daughters of American Revolution, the Altar Guild at Christ Episcopal and was a cheerleader at Tuscaloosa High School. During her professional life she was a successful antiques dealer. We were always proud when she was invited to show her eighteenth and nineteenth-century English collections year after year at the most exclusive museum shows across America. She was well liked and greatly respected within her chosen industry.
The family would especially like to thank the angels at Hospice of West Alabama and would ask that all memorials be forwarded to them at 3851 Loop Rd., Tuscaloosa, AL 35404, that they may continue their blessed and necessary work.
