She was the youngest of three children. She was a free spirit and an artist. She recently had a showing at the McComb Public Library. She always had a garden full of flowers, and everywhere she went, she made people smile.

She is survived by her parents; one son, Cody Thames; one daughter, Jessie Kelly and Austin; one brother, Hal Sibley and Kay; one sister, Melisa Sibley; and a host of other relatives, family, and friends.
