Vessie was a wife, mother and Clayton real estate agent who had beaten stage 4 cancer. She was also chef and owner of The Plain Jane Baking Company, which operated for many years at the State Farmers Market.
She is survived by her husband, Matthew, and daughter, Arden.
Beard said the Vessie family wanted to share a message about the coronavirus:
Please, in honor of Alison, understand that this pandemic is not an issue of politics but one of public health and protecting each other. Please continue to wear masks, socially distance, and wash your hands frequently. This family has seen how miserable COVID is to live through – in this case proving even more formidable than cancer.
