What A Lady!

Mary Elizabeth Presnell Posey Johnson


She had a way of making you laugh and smile. ...
She loved to cook and was a good cook...
She gave her best in all that she did...
She was a very hard worker ...
She was dedicated ....
She would not give up easily (some call it stubborn) ...
She loved deeply ...
She had a sense of humor and could laugh at troubles...
She was a hoot!
She endured much, but stuck with it ...
She finished strong...
So much that could be said and will be said and has been said about her, the mother of nine children . They are successful in whatever field they chose to serve in their many varied careers and professions.... highly educated, motivated and brilliant. The legacy that she has will live on in her children and grandchildren.
Her children brought her much joy and pleasure and she was so proud of each one.
She was preceded in death by little Tracey, a downs syndrome child.
We are going to miss her, but we never forget her. She has left her print on all or lives.

She was a great cook...her dressing and gravy were one of my favorites! 'Hoot' is the best word to describe her....she was alot of fun whether she meant to be or not!
