Despite what some may think, Disney
was not Britney's first 'job'. Her first job was shelling crawfish
in her great-grandmother's deli (Granny's Seafood Deli, which she
and her husband Arlie ran for 12 years) in south Louisiana. Mrs.
Pierce died on Dec. 12, 2001 at the age of 86. Britney is pictured
here in the kitchen of Granny's Seafood Deli.
Sadly on 10th of
December, that same year, Britney also suffered the loss of her
grandmother (Ruth Ritchie Ott Varnado Spears). Ruth
passed away at North Oaks Medical Center after loosing a long
battle with cancer. I'm sure this could not have been easy on Britney,
or anyone for that fact.
