Mrs. Daisy Ponder

Daisy Bell Ponder affectionately known as “Poonk” was born November 3, 1944, to the late George Richardson and Carrie Bell Richardson in Sasser, GA.
She accepted Christ in her life at an early age and became a member of Countyline Baptist Church in Sasser, GA. In addition to being a member, she served faithfully on the Usher Board until her health began to fail. Throughout her sickness she was determined to remain self-sufficient and independent until the good Lord called her home. She continually gave all praises to God and remained strong in her faith giving him all the glory.
Always a servant, she worked numerous years in various homes as a housekeeper and always put her best foot forward in anything she did.
On November 28, 1994, she was united into holy matrimony to her beloved John Henry Ponder whom she called her “Baby.” She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend.
In addition to her parents, George and Carrie Richardson, and Mary Hardwick, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband John Henry Ponder.
She leaves to cherish her memories: Her loving and supportive sister and brother-in-law, Ruby and Dan Smith of Leesburg, GA; Gloria Wilson (Will) of Homestead, FL; four children, Robert Ponder, Sr. (Geraldine), Randy Ponder (Thai), Stephanie Chaney, all of Albany, GA and Larry Ponder (Kimra) of Jacksonville, FL; three sisters-in-law, Annie P. Blassingame of Macon, GA, Jacquelyn P. Griffin of Albany, GA and Patricia Porter (Kary) of Albany, GA; two brothers-in-law, Willie F. Ponder of Albany, GA; Clifford Ponder (Melody) of Macon, GA. A devoted granddaughter, Eva Graham; two loving nephews Carl Herrington Jr. (Stephanie) and Daryl Smith (Ramee); a loving niece Danielle Jackson (Demetrius); thirteen grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren and seven great-great grandchildren; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and neighbors.
