Mrs. Cricket loved having family, friends and people in need to her home. She was a wonderful cook and loved every second of it. She and Jake enjoyed fishing, especially for bass. It was never too hot or too cold for fishing. She also enjoyed quail and dove hunting with Jake. She was sweet, humble, hard working and a servant. She was loved by many and will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her daughter, Thethel “Scooter” Fullwood and husband Jamie of Shiloh; son, Robert (Butch) Ayers and wife Pam of Brookhaven, MS; six grandchildren; one granddaughter-in-love; and one great-grandchild.
