Juliet, TN, Alan Gatlin of Alma, MI, Steve Gatlin (Tracey) of Lebanon, TN, Kenny Moore (Glenda) of Columbia, MO and Kevin Moore (Carrie) of Lexington, KY.

Visitation will be held from 9 am-11 am on Thursday July 18th at Mortons Gap Christian Church with the funeral service to follow at 11 am. Burial will follow at Odd Fellows cemetery. Reid-Walters Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

Casket bearers will be her grandsons.
