Mrs. Bithy loved her three girls and reminded them by saying “I love you with all my heart”. She was a simple country woman who loved her Lord, her family, her four-legged baby “Snookie”, and her snuff. She was a true matriarch of her family and words could never express how much her family will miss her. To know her was to LOVE her!! 

A million times I’ve needed you,
a million times I’ve cried…
If love alone could have saved you
you would have never died.
In life I loved you dearly, 
in death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place,
no one else can ever fill.
It broke my heart to lose you
but you didn’t go alone. 
Part of me went with you
the day that GOD
took you home. 

A funeral service was held on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at 1:00 pm at Hickory Grove Baptist Church with Rev. Mike Farmer officiating. Interment followed at Campton United Methodist Church.
