Portia was a wonderful and dedicated mother while raising her four children. She loved her children with all her heart and there was nothing she wouldn't do for them. Her children were her life. Portia was a person that was deeply loved by everyone and a wonderful provider and never expecting anything in return. She cared for all people and earned her living doing so. She worked for CCCSO (Cabell County Community Service Organization) where she was a caregiver for over 20 years. She provided her time to help those in need. Portia not only was a caregiver, but she was a loving friend and devoted contributor to the community. Portia loved spending time with family and friends. She also loved to shop while getting the best bargains. Most of all, she loved spending time with her best friend, Carolyn Buckhannon who was the sister she never had.

Ferguson, Jr. She is cherished and survived by three children Henry (Janelle) Ferguson of Baltimore, Maryland, Porsetta (Windell) Comer Prattville, Alabama and Michael Gerguson of Huntington, WV.
