Listen to this obituary

Vernice Laverne Tutor was born on August 16, 1926, in Calhoun County, MS. She lived 94 years here on earth and worked hard all of her life until her health failed. She taught her children the value of a dollar and how to work and love the Lord. She was a member of Faith Baptist Church; where she worshipped until she could no longer attend because of her health. If there is a garden in heaven, she is no doubt getting it ready for spring planting. Through the years, many people have eaten from her garden, and now she can garden again. Her hobbies included cross stitching, knitting, gardening, and mowing grass sometimes even twice a week.
