*Conflict: US GenealogyBank Obituaries estimates her death as 27 Nov 2003. Find A Grave has her death date as November 25, 2003; this is supported by her obituary in the Courier-Herald. The latter source mentions the day as Tuesday, which would be the 25th of the month. November 27, 2003 is a Thursday.

**Conflict: Find A Grave has her death location as Dublin, Laurens County, Georgia. A Courier-Herald Obituary has her death location as a hospital in Macon [Bibb County], Georgia. As I remember being told, she did die during or just after surgery.
