Emily Marie Bernard Bivens, age 24 of Ringgold, Virginia and her 14-month old son, Cullen Micah Bivens passed away unexpectedly on Tuesday, August 27, 2019 in Keeling, Virginia.
Born October 10, 1994 in Danville, Emily was the daughter of Nelson W. Bernard, III of Keeling and the late Joan Jefferson Bernard, of Keeling, who also passed away on August 27, 2019.
On January 9, 2016 Emily married Blake Alexander Bivens and they made their home in Ringgold, Virginia. Cullen, who completed their family, was born on June 10, 2018 and was the love of Emily and Blake’s lives.
