She was born November 11, 1956, to Walter “Bus” Briscoe and Jetta Briscoe. She was proudly a part of the class of 1974 of Mitchell High School where many friends preceded her in death.

The father of her youngest daughter, Brian Hughett also survives and remained a friend. She is also survived by 7 grandchildren; Shawn Lee, Kaylea Hughett, Madelyn Chastain, Johnny Lee, Everleigh Chastain, Maxwell Lewis, and Dale Chastain Jr. Her sister, Gale Acton of Seymour also survive her and her beloved Cousin who she saw as a sister; Keli Prather of Mitchell.

She was preceded in death by her parents, father of two daughters; Hilliard King, her brother David Fortner, and many beloved family members.

Graveside service will be held 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, March 16 at Mitchell Cemetery with Dr. Nick Pridemore officiating.
