A native of Grand Bay, Al, she was the daughter of the late Henry Clayton and Lettie Cora Castlen. She was a retired Registered Nurse and was a long-time member of the First United Methodist Church.
She moved to Tullahoma with her husband in 1959, and immediately joined the First United Methodist Church, becoming a member of the Questers Sunday School Class. She later received her nursing degree from Motlow State Community College and was a member of Motlow’s first nursing graduating class of 1974. She began her career at Queen City Infirmary and later, she was an ICU nurse at Harton Regional Medical Center. After retiring, she volunteered with Good Samaritan for many years where she served as Treasurer. Her bridge club ladies were very dear to her along with her church circle. She will be remembered as a beloved mother and grandmother and as a sweet, compassionate woman, who had a gift for taking care of the sick and hurting.
