LaNelle T. Cauthen, 78, of Rossville, died on Thursday, June 28, 2012 at her residence.
She was born in Cedartown, Ga., to the late Thelma Miriam and Henry Clay Tolbert, Sr. She had worked for many years at Mid-South Hosiery Mill, but was most dedicated to her loving family and was known as “Mamaw” and “GranMommy.” She enjoyed arts and crafts, but is best known for her delicious home-cooked dishes. Mrs. Cauthen was of the Baptist faith.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Euell Cauthen in 2011, and her son, Ricky Darnell Cauthen.
Thank you for the love you have shared with us. You will live forever in our hearts.

A very special thanks is extended to Laura Myers for her dedicated love and care during this difficult time. Also, to Karen Walco and the staff of Avalon Hospice.
