Beautiful plants, beautiful lady. Some of my very first memories are with Cissie. I think she picked us up on Jones Street and took us somewhere fun. Special memories of amazing house plants in the apartment across from Forsyth Park…At the University of Georgia, decades later I remember finding a picture of Cissie as a beauty queen (Maybe at the library?) And then a special visit with her at Tybee a few years ago. Life is but fleeting…but the memories and the people who make up the Imago Dei …Cissie. Aww. I am sorry she is gone from our presence here. She will be so missed. My condolences to all her grieving family and friends…-and a big hug to my Jill friend.Love Miel

Cissie’s family and my family lived next door to each other for many years. We enjoyed many evenings eating together, making ice cream, or just visiting. Growing up in small town Greensboro, GA was a perfect place to form happy memories with family and friends. I’m thankful to have gotten to visit with her a few years ago when she made a visit to my parent’s home. I am very sorry for your loss.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family. My father, John V. Burke loved Irving and Cissie. I would have to say that Dr. Irving Victor was one of his closest and loyal friends for the majority of his life and he lived to be almost 92 years old. Now they are all in heaven united and reflecting on the good times they had together. God Bless the entire family!

Cissie and I had so many fond memories of raising our four children together - going to beach, park and just hanging out together. Through the years we kept in touch, even though I moved out of the area, we would have lengthy phone calls and all to brief visits. May God comfort you as you walk through this difficult time with your loved ones. Cheral Turnipseed
