Mrs. Camilla Cotton Myhand, age 95, a life-long resident of Troup County, passed away on November 21, 2020. Mrs. Myhand was born on April 9, 1925 in West Point, Georgia to the late Harvey Cotton Sr. and Annie Mae Adams Cotton.

Ellen, Claire and families, heaven just received one of the sweetest souls to walk this earth. One of my earliest memories of growing up at First Baptist was seeing Mrs. Myland greeting us as I was dropped off in the children's department. We could always count on her smiling, loving spirit. I pray your families are being loved and taken care of like we were loved and cared for by Mr. & Mrs. Myhand when we lost our parents. Sending love and prayers. Teresa

Ellen, Claire and family. I am so sorry about Ms.Camilla.
Our whole McCurry family was brought up knowing her and Mr. Curtis as part of our family.
I was working for them just out of High School in the 1960's on Broad street then they had the Red & White ambulance.
She was a gracious and wonderful lady and will be missed. Our prayers are with you both and your families.
