She was preceded in death by her father, Reginald Sullivan; her mother, Ruth Sullivan; her sisters, Helen Sappier and Barbara Black; and her brother, Dick Sullivan.

The family wishes to acknowledge with deep appreciation the expression of love, concern and kindness shown to them during this hour of bereavement.

In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made in her honor to Memory Lane Baptist Church, 2213 Crockett Rd., Palestine, Texas 75801.

May God bless and keep you.
