She is survived by her sons, Durwood Antley (Donna), Jerry Antley and daughter, Linda Hammett; sister-in-law, Mary Tucker Miller; a whole bunch of wonderful grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great great-grandchildren, who she loved very much and kept up with all their birthdays and they loved Maw Maw Antley. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and many other cherished family and friends.
The family would like to thank all the family and many friends for their support and prayers received during the last several years and for the loving care of Landmark Nursing Home staff over the last five months. If you desire to do a memorial, her favorite was the Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home, where she had sent memorials to for at least 30 years.
