Mrs. Odom was born June 6, 1931 in Opp, AL daughter of the late William Horace Mathews, Sr. and Alma Lee Peavy Mathews. She was an active member of Faith Temple Assembly of God worshiping regularly with family and friends. For years she served others through the Food Bank at the church, receiving great joy in return. Always seeking to serve others, she loved her family and finding ways to serve and help them also.
