A seamstress, Royce was full of vim and vigor and had a quick wit. She loved people and always had a word for everyone she met. She was a charter member of Grace Baptist Church and served an active role until her health would no longer allow. She enjoyed the outdoors and kept busy working in her yard and flowers. She loved animals, especially her Bantam chickens, and her cat and dog, Susie and Trouble. Her biggest passion in life though was her family, especially her grandchildren. She is survived by her daughter, Dell (Ronnie Gardner) Nipper of Cordele; a grandson and his wife, Blake and Nikki Manning; and two great-granddaughters, Bailey Manning and Libby Manning. Arrangements were by Rainey Family Funeral Services. An online guest register is available at
