Ms. Aplin was born to Dewey and Beulah Lewis on November 1, 1925, in Samson, AL. The first of 7 children, she assisted in the care of her younger siblings. She devoted her life to her family. She became the caretaker of her youngest brother who is cognitively disabled when her parents passed. She loved babies, and each generation she was blessed with became just a little bit more spoiled.
