In 2009, they relocated to Collierville, TN. Although she lived in several states, she was a hometown Alabama girl and Alabama football was one of her passions. She was also a huge music lover who always enjoyed dancing. BJ was a loving mother, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. The love she had for others poured out throughout her 76 sweet years. What a legacy of love that she has left us all. The lessons she taught us will surely never be forgotten. Her love for children changed lives and her generosity surrounded her every waking moment. She was a 3 time breast cancer survivor and was a very strong woman. Her news of a lung cancer diagnosis shook her but did not break her. She vowed to fight it with the same fiery spirit. Her courage, bravery and strength is an inspiration.
