There will be a service conducted by the Revs. Larry Patterson and Jonathan Hill of Little Escambia Baptist Church, held at Petty-Eastside Chapel Funeral Home on Sept. 6, at 10 a.m. followed by grave side service at Elizabeth Chapel Cemetery in Chumuckla.

It was Edith’s wish that instead of sending flowers a contribution be made, in her memory, to Little Escambia Baptist Church Building program or in some other way to further the gospel of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ, if you wish.

Petty-Eastside Chapel Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
