Many things can be said about the life of Jimmie Louise Gill. Whether it was her cooking, or teaching her family how to cook, nobody ever left her house hungry. She was a devoted mother, grandmother and sister to the church. She worked hard to go above and beyond with any task given to her, small or large. She was selfless and loved by everyone who met her. She always had a smile, whether it be for a stranger or an old friend. She’d do what she could to make those around her laugh. She had a long, beautiful walk with God, and she loved him above all else. She may have forgotten many things in the end, but she never forgot how to talk to the Lord. In many ways, her passing was a tragedy. But may her loved ones feel peace knowing she’s painlessly walking those streets of gold now, awaiting the day her family is reunited. And may she rest in peace knowing how loved she is.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Jimmy and Bessie Johnson; one son, Billy Joe Culpepper; two brothers, Lawrence Johnson and Joe Richard Johnson; two sisters, Lois Barber and Dorothy Beasley, and one granddaughter, Rianna Gibbs Wilson.
Survivors include her three daughters, Marilyn Gibbs, Donna Powell (Michael) and Glenda Edwards (Terry), all of Foxworth; one sister, Peggy Ruth Barnhill of Warrenton‚ N.C.; eight grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren.
Pallbearers were Joey Wheat, Michael Edwards, Kevin Mullins, Merrell Porter, Clayton Powell and Kameron Mullins.
