Burial followed in Green Hills Memorial Cemetery. Visitation was held one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. The Murphy’s Chapel United Methodist Church Sunday School class  served as honorary pallbearers.  Mrs. Booker is fondly remembered for her boisterous spirit and youthful charisma that brought all her endeavors and encounters to a bright, fulfilled life.  Mrs. Booker continued to grow in her faith as a loyal member of Murphy’s Chapel United Methodist Church and participant in the UMW Group. She dedicated 25 years working as a secretary for AT & T in Montgomery. She found great pleasure and reward in tending her garden, baiting a fishing hook, and she cherished family time around the dinner table with a homemade meal ̶ always cooked with love and dressed with an extra special “Granny” affection for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  Mrs. Booker was preceded in death by her parents, Guy R. and Essie M. Williford; and sister, Mary Williford Bowles. She is survived by her husband of 65 years, E.C. Booker; sons, Ronald R. Booker (Pattie B.) and Bruce A. Booker (Joette L.); daughter, Jennifer B.
