A celebration of life for Avery Lee Webb Britt will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 10, 2014, at Mt. Pisgah CME Church in Homer. She was 86 years old.
The family viewing hour will be held Friday, May 9, from 6 until 7 p.m.
Born Jan. 8, 1928, to James and Lelar Webb, Avery grew up in the Red Hill community. She graduated from Webster High School and married Ivory "Sonny" Britt in 1947. Together, they raised five children: Albert, Linda, Joe, Janet, and James, and their goddaughter Deborah.
Bigmama, as she was called, loved God, cooking, quilting, fishing and telling a good story.
She was a lifelong member of Mt. Pisgah and devoted herself to upholding the spirit and traditions of the Mt. Pisgah community. She remained active in the church until her illness.
On May 4, 2014, Avery was reunited in Heaven with her beloved parents, an infant daughter, her son Albert, and her husband Ivory, all of whom preceded her in death.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mt. Pisgah CME Church in Homer.
