Many great memories of this very special grandparent- many days she would pull up to the building and call me to come outside to talk to her. Only Ms. ELSEY, I enjoyed all of the conversations and advice. She loved her family and shared with me often of her desires to "simply do the right things in life". She was a very proud grandmother! Justin and Cody my prayers are with you and your family. WIth Deepest Sympathy Debra B. Frazier Principal -Midway Middle School

My condolences to the family. May you find comfort in the scripture at Revelation 21:4 and the website jw. org.

Niecy, Savannah,

I am sorry for your loss. Death is painful to all of us. However God's word the Bible always offers encouragement. A scripture I find comforting is Isaiah 25:8. There Jehovah promises to do away with death and all things that bring us pain. That will be very satisfying! I hope this thought has been comforting to you. May positive thoughts fill you hearts and minds as you endure this difficult time.

She truly represented selflessness, a person whom has made many sacrifices for others, put her wants, needs, and happiness on hold so that her family may experience life to the fullest. Those who know her, know she only wanted the best for her family and would do anything for them. She was a beloved daughter, sister, aunt, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend to many and will forever be in our hearts. Now, God has brought her home to live in peace with Him.

Nita is predeceased by her: father, Alvin Gus Hilton; mother, Estelle Price Hilton; brothers, Alvin & Malcom Hilton; sisters, Joyce Hilton & Rose Sheffield; and daughter, Sherri Geoffroy.
