She enjoyed cooking, gardening, spending time with her family, bingo, and socializing with friends at the Links Social Club.

She leaves to cherish her memory one daughter, Sylvia Pearson; three grand-children, LaTrenda, Tawana, and Jermaine; three great-grandchildren, LaVontae, Jasmine, and Lauren; and one great-great-grandchild, Aaliyah; niece, Lucille; great-nephews, Frank and DeCarlo; and a host of cousins.
