The funeral will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 11, 2008, at Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church, with the Rev. Michael Ritter officiating. Burial will be at the church cemetery.

Mrs. Pettus was a homemaker and was very active in her church and community. She was a member of the Indian Land Eastern Star. Mrs. Pettus was an avid gardener and loved her many flowers as was indicated by her beautiful yard.
