She was the best granny to ever walk this Earth. She loved her family and friends, but most importantly- the Lord. She is walking with Him today, after 89 years here on this earth.

Mrs Dimple was truly a fine lady. She worked with my late mother Ruby Lane and my wife Shirley Lane for many years. We always enjoyed seeing her and visiting her. We want to extend our most heart felt sympathy to the family.

Mrs Dimple was always sweet and kind. She baked me a homemade carrot cake for my birthday one year. It was the most delicious carrot cake I ever had. Rest In Peace sweet lady

I sadly didn't get to know Mrs. Dimple very well but did enjoy talking to her whenever we both were out in our yards.
