Martha Renfroe Jones, 86, died peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, July 17, 2016 with daughter, Janis, son-in-law, Dee and her son, David’s spirit showering her with love. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Desoto Hills Baptist Church. The family will receive friends from 9 a.m. until service time. Hernando Funeral Home has charge. Mrs. Jones spent the last days of her earthly life at North Delta Hospice Facility on Goodman Road in Southaven. The nurses, aides, doctors and directors are undoubtedly hand chosen by God. Miss Martha was an avid authority on American history second only to General George Patton himself! She was a remarkable woman with an untouchable sense of humor that when you met her you loved her and never forgot her, accomplished pianist, soprano soloist and choir director. But her family’s most favorite memories were hearing her and her alto singing sister, “Bugs” sing solos in church. Each niece and nephew could write a book with stories both funny and sad about “Aunt Martha”.
Martha was preceded in death by her parents, Ruby and Corbett Renfroe and, heartbreakingly, by her son, David Corbett on August 6, 2015. She is survived by her loving daughter and son-in-law, Janis and Dee Wardlaw; son-in-law, Larry Jeane; grandchildren, Evan Sams (Gwen), Ronnie Wardlaw (Misty), Brett Wardlaw (Polly) and Dana Wardlaw; great grandchildren, Austin, Jarvis, Halley, Cooper, Banks and Grady; 8 nieces and nephews; 11 great nieces and nephews. Memorial contributions may be made to the Gary Sinese Veterans Foundation or the AIDS Foundation.
