Our Inspiration

Fannie was a remarkable woman and highly regarded citizen noted for her varied gifts and talents relating to food, flowers, community service, and hospitality. 

Fannie was no stranger to hard work growing up on a farm in rural Pickens County. When she wasn’t working her 8– ­4 job as a teller at Citizens Bank, she could be found cooking for various venues, rocking grandbabies, leading a cub scout troop, teaching a group of church women to lay a rock foundation, or arranging flowers she had grown for the church altar or a bridal tea. 

Although she was known for her strong work ethic, you might find her having fun buck dancing or engaging in conversation where her contagious laughter could lighten the mood of a room.
