She moved to Griffin, GA in 1964. A very social person, she enjoyed her many friends, painting, needlework and crafting, flower arranging (she owned a florist shop in Cedartown), women's clubs, garden clubs, bridge, crosswords and other word games, and her church (First Baptist Church of Griffin) where she frequently did the altar flowers.
She is survived by son R. Allen Bond of Marietta, grandsons Bates Bowers III of Johns Creek and Paul Bond of Marietta, and granddaughter Heather Bond of Lilburn, as well as two great-granddaughters and a great-grandson.
She was the heart of our family and will be greatly missed, but we are happy she is in her new home!
