Memories Timeline


  1. I always enjoyed talking to her at our family events. She cared so much about how everyone was doing. We’ll miss her a lot!

  2. First picture, Alline and Joe about 1951. Second picture, when Kyle and Alline visited us in Mississippi 2000-2001. In 74 years, Alline never forgot Joe’s birthday. Every year he would get a card or call, and his birthday wasn’t complete until he heard from her. 🙂 She will be missed. Joe spent weeks during the summer with Kyle and Alline – some of his best memories are the Fair and car races.

  3. Mrs. Berry was the person I first looked for when I got to work at school every morning. She and I had a special relationship that consisted of respect, humor, and caring friendship. I consider her one of the most special people I have known. Ken Waggoner

  4. I thoroughly enjoyed our “joy rides” to eat out and visit our favorite spots around Nashville! We usually would end up at Centennial Park watching and feeding the ducks. She also liked going by her previous neighborhood and seeing the home she lived in for many years very close to the school. Always looked forward to her coming to visit Park Avenue after she retired! Rest In Peace, Dear Lady! Kathy Long

  5. Neighbor,friend,and coworker since 1984. The memories made over the years will remain in my heart forever. I will miss our O’Charley’s dates the most.
