Mrs Combs and my mother were friends and fellow North Hill Neighbor Club members. I've always remembered how kind Mrs Combs was to me when I was growing up. I last saw her at my mothers funeral where she shared memories that I carry to this day. Sending healing prayers and comforting hugs. I am so sorry for your loss.

I was so blessed to have Bessie in my life. I was aide and took care of at Arbor at Stow, then was blessed to take her again at The Briarwood as her nurse/unitanager. She was a wonderful person and always kept me on my toes. She is and always will be dearly missed. God really gained a solider/angel. Rest in Heaven Bessie💔

Praise our LORD. The Broadview Heights Hospital ladies are together again. A legacy of love remains with her family. My Mom, Willie Mae Addie Burton always spoke fondly of Ms Bessie. She took our Saviour's hand with quiet dignity. A life well lived. My deepest sympathy, but with the hope and joy for eternal life.

Please accept my deepest condolences! Although I didn’t know Mrs. Combs personally. My Nana who passed away back in 2008 got consistent letters and cards of encouragement from Sister Combs whereas they attended church together on Kelly Ave. She’s now resting with our Father. Job well done!

My Sincere Condolences to the Combs Family. I have to admit I shed a few tears when I found out Mrs. Combs passed away. I grew up next door on Springdale St. She was always so sweet, and I can remember her taking me to church with her several times. I know she is at peace now with GOD and back with Mr. Combs again! Rest in Heavenly Peace! Ms. Deon Burton (Tassy)
