Oziabelle Grimsley’s heart was full and overflowed and to all who knew her. To miss someone so much means they were extremely special, and we were blessed to have her in our lives. She is in our hearts forever and will always be missed. We know she’s happy now. It hurts to be apart, but we will see Belle again. We are confronted to know she is in heaven, sharing her stories knowing she was a gift in our lives, and smiling down on all of us.
BORN JANUARY 26, 1924 – PASSED AWAY JANUARY 29, 2022
Oziabelle Grimsley’s passion was family. She loved to cook those sweet potato pies and coconut pies. She would often cook from scratch. Belle is what her friends called her. Belle was a hard worker, and there was very little time that she took off, she would work two or more jobs. She has a heart like gold for helping others and was very giving. When family or friends were in need she took them home sometimes for years never wanting a dime. She was just happy to see them get on their feet again. If you knew Belle then you know her favorite store was Lord and Taylor. Even when the store wasn’t as popular as it was in the past she was still a loyal fan.
