Went to be with her Lord on August 21, 2017 at the age of 90 years. She was born in Cardwell, MO, but spent the majority of her childhood growing up in Success, AR. She was preceded in death by her husband, Charles. They were founding members of St. Louis Church and she spent many years as an active member of the Altar Guild and Fleur de Lis. She worked outside of the home briefly until she became a full time homemaker and bookkeeper/office manager for Charles and his business, Lawn Care by Duff. Later on after the children got older she began doing extensive volunteer work with the Orpheum, Pink Palace I-Max, Theater Memphis, Memphis Symphony (Ellis Auditorium and Cannon Center) and the Cook Convention Center. She was always busy doing something as sitting still was not in her genes. She is survived by sons, Lee (Brenda) of Olive Branch, MS and John (Darlene) of Bartlett, TN, as well as daughter, Sue Holt of Memphis. She was a loving grandmother to five grandchildren, Jason Duff (Jennifer) of White House, TN, Regina Duff of Lebanon, TN, Michael Holt of Memphis, TN, Brandon Duff (Jessica) of Little Rock, AR and Todd Hill (LeAnna) of Olive Branch, MS.
