Bessie was a loving and caring mother who was close to her children. She was her family’s foundation and was someone they could turn to when they needed her caring advice or listing ear. In her spare time, she loved to be in her garden growing beautiful rose bushes and flowers of all colors. She also enjoyed shopping with her daughters and husband by her side. Bessie will be missed greatly by her loving family and many friends.
