“TV” was a graduate of Jackson High School class of 1954. Loved to remember and talk about her school years, walking to school and her friends. She loved all the seasons of the year and enjoyed walking in the snow. She always liked to visit with her family and many friends in Jackson and neighbors on Redondo Drive, where she had lived since 1960. She enjoyed the vacations to the ocean and the mountains. Her favorite car was her red 1999 Mustang. She was a member of the Wagon Wheelers Square Dance Club. She served as church secretary at Calvary UM for 20 years, where she was also a member soon after the church was built by Roland Fisher in the early 1950’s.

“TV” met her future husband, Story, in 1948 at the DTI Depot in Jackson. They married in 1954 after he returned from the Army (Korea). They lived for 5 years at Waverly, 1 year in Ironton and the rest of her life in her hometown of Jackson. She was a devoted wife and mother and homemaker who loved her family greatly.
