Ms Jettie was the best. She taught my daughter Jennifer in Sunday school and also would always speak and have a kind word for everyone. She was a true Saint. The family is in or prayers today. My husband's mother was a good friend of her sister Odessa. We knew her for many years and attended Red Branch church where she was an avid member. She was always concerned for the welfare of others and would always call with a kind work. Arles and Bradie Taylor Carthage NC
