She also didn’t mind telling you what was on her mind; as the saying goes, what came up would definitely come out. She held down various jobs, including Holly Farms and the shirt factory in Parksley, Virginia.

On June 26, 1960, she married Albert Lee Cropper, their union was blessed with six children, Barbara, Calvin, Lillie, Denise, Cordoria, and Alesia.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by three brothers, William, Darrell, and Kenneth Hall; and two grandchildren, Euchithea and Ka’Mauri Cuffee.
