Preceded in death by her precious big sister, Marie Bednash.

Memorial service will be conducted at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Feb. 15, 2014, in Centenary Methodist Church with Pastor Jimmy Moore officiating. The family suggests that in lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Centenary Methodist Church, Wabash Valley Community or charity of choice. Until we meet again, Momma; we love you forevermore.
