Vernell Sanders Strickland 86 of Port Charlotte, Passed away peacefully Monday, February 4,2013 surrounded by her loving family.
She is preceded in death by her husband Braxton Strickland of Punta Gorda,Fl.
She was a Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Great Great Grandmother and dear friend to many. Though she spent much of her life in Florida, she felt blessed to be born Texan.
Over the last few years her memories started to fade but she never forgot how proud she was to be raised on the biggest ranch in Bell County Texas.
She loved the simple things in life, grandbabies laughing, good food, friends, puzzles, and garage sales.
She was kind, compassionate, and always listened with a nonjudgmental ear.
She wanted to help in any way she could and her family will miss the homemade soup when we were sick, hearing her sing and hum to Darktown strutters ball or the Yellow rose of Texas.
She left a permanent mark on those who loved her and she will never be forgotten.
She was mother to Martha Cole, Roger Byrd, Justin Byrd, and William(Billy)Skinner. There will be a private graveside service and a celebration of life is being planned.
