Mrs. Bills entered into heaven on Sunday, April 1, 2018 at The Heritage House after a lengthy illness. What better day to go see Jesus than on Easter Sunday!

She was a faithful member of Central Baptist Church for over fifty years, for many of those years she was in charge of the food ministry. Mrs. Bills was known as a fantastic cook who loved sharing her dishes with friends. Most of all she was a loving wife and mother who was cherished by all who knew her.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, James Burris Bills; her parents, Nathaniel and Estelle Bearden; her sisters, Virginia Nichols, Inez Inglis, and Jackie Dempsey. She is survived by one daughter, Joanna B. Stauts and husband Richard of Homestead, Fl.; one brother, Louis Bearden and wife Arlene of Floydada, Tx; numerous nieces, nephews, grand- nieces, grand- nephews and a host of friends.
