She was saved at Carr's Branch Baptist Church. Part of her testimony is how her dress to be baptized in was made of sack cloth & she sewed red buttons on it to represent Christ's bloodshed. She was a faithful corner stone at M.C.M. Baptist Church and is now singing in the heavenly choir. She loved life and would say "I don't want to miss anything!" She learned to swim at age 50, Kayak the river for her 80th birthday. "Snow Days" meant play, hot chocolate & snow cream with grandchildren all day. Then the great grandchildren came, she was the one that got Kamdin to laugh out loud for the first time. Her love for Christ, Church, & family will forever impact our lives and memories. She was preceded in death by her: Parents: Charlie & Nola Sweet, Son Ronald Keck, Son-in-law Hugh Estes, Brother George Sweet, Sisters, Hazel Sweet, Juanita Moyers, Cora Hopson, Mossie McCurry & Susan Rielly.

Grandchildren: Kari & Ryan Nolan of Florida, Casey & Mandy Keck, Krissi & B.J. Williams of New Tazewell Great Grandchildren: Kamdin Nolan, Campbell Nolan, Kailyn Williams & Kassie Williams A Host of nephews & nieces, relatives & friends & church family. She loved to garden, sweet potatoes were her specialty. Her Bible is worn as she has read it from cover to cover many times. She loved sports as she has supported her family & church family by attending games & would cheer the Lady Vols & called them by name. We cannot express enough her love & joy of life on this short writing. Jesus says in John 10, I am come that they might have life & they might have it more abundantly, I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. She was patient in tribulation, lived in faith & is rejoicing in hope.
