Mrs. Joiner was born May 12, 1919 in Grady Co., GA to the late James Isaac and Rena Coble Wilder. She was married to the late John Morgan Joiner and was a retired assembler for Goody's Manufacturing Company. She was a member of Mizpah Primitive Baptist Church.
Waver was an amazing person and no one could have asked for a more loving mother or grandmother. She cherished her family and with a nurturing heart showered love over each one of us. She extended that thoughtfulness to both the young and elderly by caring for infants in her home for many years and making visits to the Pelham Parkway Nursing Home to help feed the sick and weak. She was a member of the Mizpah Primitive Baptist Church in Grady County. GA. She had a strong belief in her Lord and Savior and read her Bible every day until she no longer could. Losing a loved one isn't easy, love seldom is, but people of faith can take solace in knowing that this is not the end. Merely the end of earthly suffering and that she is rejoicing in Heaven with her family and will be waiting there to greet us.
Survivors include her daughters; Sonyal Prater of Chesapeake, VA and Martha Goss and husband, Robert, of Leesburg, GA. Grandchildren; Tammie Prater, Chad Goss, Travis Prater, Angela Avery, Todd Prater, and Heather McCarty.
