She was in the last graduating class of Troutville High School. After graduation, she married the love of her life and they lived happily ever after for 56 years until his passing in 2014. Everyone always said you never saw one without the other and rarely did anyone call one of their names without saying the other’s as well. She was known for her generous spirit, wonderful homemade cakes, meticulously manicured lawn, and a garden that provided a huge harvest every year that they would share with family, friends and neighbors.
She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by her daughters, Trena Pividal and Traci (Matt) Clark; her grandchildren, Trey (Jaclyn) Pividal, Claudia (Chad) Johnson, and Coleman Clark; great-grandchildren who were the loves of her life, Alayna and Joanna Johnson, and Emmalyn and Calvin Pividal; dear brother-in-law, Clayton Flowers; her best friend, Deanie Jackson; and many nieces, nephews, neighbors and friends. Special thanks to the wonderful staff with Good Samaritan Hospice, Brookdale – Roanoke Memory Care, and Carrington Place who gave her wonderful care during her last months.
