She is survived by a caring and loving family, including a son, Richard Nethercutt and wife Cathy of Southhaven; a sister, Jean Fields of Grayson; six grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; a great-great-grandchild; and a host of friends.
Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012, at Brush Creek Freewill Baptist Church, with comforting words delivered by Pastor Frank Hackworth. Burial will be in Kirby Flats Cemetery in Ashland.
Visitation for family and friends will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 16, 2012, at Carman Funeral Home in Flatwoods.
