Bernice Trammel, 82, of Ellijay, died Jan. 10, 2014.

Bernice was loved by her family and enjoyed life in her later years.

She loved being in the kitchen, cooking and "force-feeding" family and visitors.

With a gracious heart, if Bernice was able to, she would cook Sunday dinner every week.

She and Horace were always compassionate about helping others, especially at Christmastime.

Her parents, Claude and Willie Tolbert, preceded her in death.

Survivors include her husband of 63 years, Horace Trammel of Ellijay; children, Joan and John Tinsley, Tommy Trammel, all of Ellijay; grandchildren, Tiffany Marie, Dewey Claude (D.C.) and Zachary Thomas; three great-grandchildren; sister, Billie Doris Chambers of Lawrenceville; various other relatives also survive.

Funeral services were held at 3 p.m. Jan. 12 at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church with the Revs. Lyman Caldwell, Jason Hamby, James Samples and Steve Shadwick officiating. The family went in procession to the church from the funeral home. Interment followed at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church Cemetery.

Ingram Funeral Home and Crematory of Cumming was in charge of the arrangements.
