  5. She was my favorite cousin we always got along so well. She would light up a room just being in it.
    She will be missed. We always shared her special cup of tea & Circuis peanuts.

    • Pansy was an energetic beautiful teenager when I met her in 1966 and she is all that and more today.

  6. It is with sincere regret that we are unable to attend this service for Pansy because of J.D.’s recent surgery. We want to share in the loss of one of Mountain Grove’s most valuable members. Pansy was always there for everyone in the community and in the church.

    We shared so many wonderful memories with Pansy and Steve when we livedin Surry, VA and in Tennessee.

    We will always remember Octoberfest in Nashville. This man none of us knew grabbed Pansy by the arm and with her pocketbook on the other arm, danced in the street to the music. We never saw this man again.

    We will always cherish these memories of a most dear and trusted friend.

    • Steve and Family
