She was an active supporter of the Rutledge Center and a member of St. Some of her greatest stories have been told of her and her posse of golfing ladies. She was known as “Queen of the Slots”, lover of Bingo, hostess to business parties at the family home for people all over the world, and probably "the best darn cook in the world". Other past-times included bird watching and growing flowers as colorful as her life was.
Known as the "go-to" woman with a tenacious, quick witted temperament, she will truly be missed by a host of family and friends.

She loved living down here and as someone who never met a stranger she was welcomed as an ultimate southern belle who wasn't born here.

The National Socialist Movement, a neo-Nazi group, is planning a rally at Greenville Street Park in downtown Newnan on April 21 at 3 p.m. Here are some of their responses: I believe they chose Newnan because of our history. When it costs you money as a taxpayer, you have a voice. The First Amendment guarantees their right to do this, whether we agree with them or not. Ignoring them just gives them great footage of an unhindered platform. Let them spew their ignorance so people can see what they really stand for. These people march for Trump and other Republicans. With all the hype, they are already getting attention. Why, oh why did the city accept a pavilion rental agreement from Jeff Schoep knowing that there may be demonstrations, potential violence and possibly a huge clean-up bill?
But if you feel you are not smart enough, or talented enough, or strong enough, you can go to a park and shout, "At least I'm white! History teaches us ignoring things can lead to greater problems, like how Hitler came to power. Don't focus on what's being said, but rather the freedom to say it. I am disappointed to see the city of Newnan allow a group of people so filled with hate and bigotry to speak here.
It's a shame we have to allow for things like this. Think of all the fun you can have on a Saturday: spend time with friends, play sports, have a few drinks. This would have probably been a non-event if the media had not gotten involved.
Nazi memorabilia can get you arrested in Germany, but here in America you can have a protest in honor of Hitler, and no one can stop you? Freedom of speech means everyone gets to have their say, especially those with whom you don’t agree. They have the right to speak, and I have the freedom to ignore them – and I will. It will hurt the downtown merchants, and it will cost the taxpayers. “Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that” – Dr. I in no way support this group, but as long as it is a peaceful assembly, I fully support their First Amendment rights. The white supremacists, Nationalists, conservative and GOP hate demonstration marches are fueled by plain fear of the inevitable browning of America cause by interracial dating. It is best to just ignore them, stay away from their area and life will be good.
