    I’m so very sorry that such a wonderful family member has passed. She’s always been a backbone for our family. I’ll miss her great hugs, easy smile and sharp wit. I’m so happy she’ll be reunited with God and Uncle Bill. I love and miss you dearly, Aunt Artie.

    Love,

    To the bereaved family we extend our deepest sympathies. We were grateful to reunite with Miss. Artie in Sept. 2014 while in Fayetteville to bury our Aunt Henrietta Shelton, daughter of Henry and Mattie Ballard. Artie shared a lot of family history with us and she will be greatly missed.
