We all will miss her and her beautiful smile. She
has been a wonderful mother and friend to many. If
anyone came hungry, our mom and dad made sure they
didn't leave hungry. They always had a table full of
food, and if anyone came they were welcome to join
She was a hard worker and loved to can and cook
for her family. Being blind and hard of hearing
didn't hinder her from living a long and productive
life for others.

Bohannon and her husband Laurence (Bo). A very
special grandson she raised, Glen Collier and his

There were some special people and family that
made sure they would not forget her they visited her
every Sunday, they checked on her often and they
used one day a week to spend time with her. The
family appreciates this a lot and wants each of you
to know how important this was to her and the
family. A special friend, Tina Forbes, whom she
loved who now lives in Raleigh, NC thanks for your
