I am Foy Knox;s granddaughter...Deressia was the cook (dare I say Chef) for my grandparents restaurant in Gilmer (Foy Knox Cafe)...I grew up (spending every summer with my grandp[arents) on her good food.

My latest and fondest memory was in 1981 when I came through town to pick up a car and drive it back o New Orleans..I unexpectedly dropped in and Deressia made my favorite dessert before she knocked off work,,,banana pudding!

She wa a stern, fine and dear woman...my sympathies to her family and God Bless...
