Ms. Batiste was a woman with a sturdy, loving character, who always maintained her faith and believed with all her heart that God’s will for her life was for her good and His glory.
She was a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many. She is survived by her son James Clinton, her daughter Lydia Elmore, grandchildren James Carheel, Carrie Phillips, Sara Gaston, Tasha Clinton, Joshua Clinton, Linda Elmore, Terrance Jefferson, James Elmore, Naddeah Clinton, and Anthony Elmore, and host of great-grandchildren.
Ms. Batiste was a pioneer for all women suffering from mesh-related complications. Enduring pain and while walking with a cane, Ms. Batiste attended almost every day of her landmark trial against Johnson and Johnson last March and April. Though she lost the battle for her life; she died knowing that she had won the war. Johnson and Johnson has appealed her verdict, but 12 jurors in a Dallas courtroom granted justice to her family and her.
Her favorite flower was The Sunflower, and her favorite color was purple. The 23rd Psalm was her favorite scripture, and she recited it often.
