Hortence was known to her loving family as Nanny. She was ambitious in life and went back to college to get an accounting degree, to run her own business for several years. She loved keeping her mind sharp with puzzles, word finds and loved cooking meals for her entire family. Every Christmas season, she spent several hours making tamales. Later in life, she passed down her secret recipe for her family to keep the tradition. Hortence loved and cherished her family and our Lord Jesus Christ. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
