Sweet sweet lady. I worked with her at the school in the kitchen. Gone but not thoughts and prayers to the family

She was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. I remember her always hugging us and watching over me and my sister at school. Your family is in our prayers.

Mrs. Farris was the sweetest and kindest friend that a person could find. She and my grandmother (Lonnie Robinson) were good friends and attended the same Sunday School class for years. She stayed in contact with my grandmother when Mamaw moved into the nursing home, making sure she was loved and not lonely in a new place. She also made sure to personally deliver a meal to my family when my mother died and offered her condolences in person; I will never forget her generosity and love shown to me and my family. Mrs. Farris always had a kind word and big hug for those around her. She will be missed. I was blessed to know her. ❤

In loving memory,

Stefani Slaughter
