In Black culture, you don't call elders by their first name. The fact that she wasn't aware of this is a mess.
At the very least, you have got to put a "Miss" in front of it. Not just say the first name all Willy nilly.
my cousins always called my aunt's white best friend by her first name. and when i'd visit i'd always call her Ms Jones and she's like "you can call me Lisa like everyone else"i looked at my mom for approval and she shook her head. still call her Ms Jones to this day.

I'm 37 and still calling my Mom's friends Miss whatever. It just feels inappropriate without the Miss.
Some people are put on earth to make it a better place to live, but the majority are here to do the devil’s bidding.
