  1. Carol Brannock

    My prayers and thoughts are with the family. I am glad I got to meet this beautiful lady.

  2. Shirley Nanney

    I have known Mavis for many years. She was a dear friend and always there when you needed her. Most of the time she would have anything you needed from a grocery or department store. We had some very good times camping, skiing and just being together.
    Our prayers go out to Deborah and the family.

    God bless.
