Mrs. Duncan was one of the survivors of the tornadoes of April 27, 2011, as her house was ripped to shreds around her. She loved pictures of her family. She was a member of Shady Grove Baptist Church. Our family lost a very precious lady. She was our angel on earth and now she is our angel in Heaven.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 61 years, Arcie Duncan; grandson, David Cooper; parents, Thomas and Martha Kelley; brothers, Anaise Kelley, John Kelley; sisters, Dena Cochran, Mary Pounders, and Pearl McCarley.

She is survived by her daughters, Shirley Duncan, Jean Mayfield and husband, Jack, Barbara Cooper and husband, William; grandchildren, Cindy Mayfield Fox, Chris Mayfield, Mike Cooper, Sonya Cooper Wood, Amanda Cooper Davis, Carla Cooper; great-grandchildren, Corey Jackson, Jenna Jackson, Lexi Cooper, Jocelyn Davis, Haley Clemons, Logan Davis, Garrett Wood, Branden Wood, Ashten Mayfield, Bradey Mayfield, Kurt Fox, Kristina Fox, Jason Fox; great-great-grandchildren, Weston Jackson, Maci Cate Jackson; and a host of nieces and nephews.
