She is survived by daughter, Nancy Winchester and husband Danny; son, Paul Anthony Alexander; her beloved canine companion, Emmie and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and extended family. The family would also like to recognize all her loyal customers from over the many years that she became close to and considered her second family. The family will receive friends on Friday, November 16, 2018 from 6 – 8pm at Weatherford Mortuary. The funeral will follow at 8pm with Rev. Logan Parton and Deacon Bill Hurst officiating. Family and friends will meet on Saturday at 10am at Oak Ridge Memorial Park for a graveside service. Flowers are appreciated or any memorials can be made to Solway Missionary Baptist Church.
