She also leaves six grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She was called Mammaw by the grandkids and the world's greatest mother by Bobby and Woody. She will be deeply missed by her family, her extended family at Parkview Methodist in Benton, and the few remaining bridge players with whom she spent so many wonderful hours. A celebration of her life will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 26, 2010 at Parkview United Methodist Church in Benton. A viewing will be held Sunday at the church from 12:30 – 2 p.m. Interment will follow at New Rosemont Memorial Park in Benton.
