Today we made funeral arrangements.
Today I wrote her obituary:
Towanda xxxxxxxx lost her battle with cancer on Tuesday July 15, 2014 at her home surrounded by those that loved her. She was 48 years old. "Tennie" was the 9th child born to Reverend Charles James & Maxine xxxxx on December 26, 1965. She lived most of her life in Denton, Texas, was a graduate of Denton High School and a long time member of the Denton Church of God.
Tennie was loved my many. She exemplified what it means to be a part of a family. She took care of those she loved, by cooking meals for anyone in need, babysitting her many,many nieces and nephews at a moments notice and has been the primary care giver for the last several years to her mother who suffers from Alzheimer's.
A celebration of her life will be held at 10AM Friday, July 18, 2014 in the Chapel of DeBerry Funeral Directors with her brothers, Rev Glen xxxx and Rev Michael xxxxx officiating.
Tennie is survived by her only daughter and son-in-law, Stacy and Dennis xxxx, her sisters and their spouses: Kathie and Lee xxxxx, Trish and Hubby xxxxx; her brothers and their spouses: Paul & Melba xxxx, Glen and Comedra xxxx, Michael and Paulette xxxx, Rickey and Ruby xxxx, Gary and Cindy xxxx, Mark and Phyllis xxxx, and David xxxx. Too many nieces and nephews to name individually and her adoring grand children Chase and Charlie xxxx.
Tennie will always live on in the hearts of those that loved her.
