She was a member of Mount Carmel Christian Church in Stone Mountain, GA and her childhood church was Forest Heights Baptist Church in Athens, GA. Vanessa was the Regional Human Resources Manager for HCR ManorCare. She attended Bob Jones University and Toccoa Falls College.

Vanessa was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend to all who knew her. "In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony." - Eva Burrows. Vanessa was our oil, cement and music. "Music is the medicine of the breaking heart." - Leigh Hunt

Christmas was Vanessa’s most favorite time of year. In this season of giving, she lived to shed joy on others. "In as much as ye have done it unto one of the least of these…ye have done it unto me." - Matthew 23:40
