Martha Renfroe Jones

SOUTHAVEN

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.

Harris PicHannah Jane Schultz Vick Harris

July 11, 2016

 

Hernando – Hannah Jane Schultz Vick Harris, 80, died peacefully at home on Monday, July 11, 2016 surrounded by her family. She was born September 21, 1935 in Tillatoba, Mississippi to Lenna Allen Schultz and Gustave Francis Schultz. Hannah graduated Valedictorian from Oakland High School, where she was a cheerleader, played on the basketball team, and participated in a variety of other extracurricular activities. She had her own radio show, heard regularly in the Grenada area. Hannah worked as a supervisor for 35 years with South Central Bell, serving in the Grenada, Hernando, and Tupelo offices before her retirement. She returned to Tillatoba after retiring, where she was an active and lifelong member of Tillatoba Baptist Church, serving as Church Organist. Hannah was also a member of Order of the Eastern Star.

 

Music was an important part of Hannah’s life. She enjoyed singing, playing the organ and piano, and multiple other musical instruments. This love is one passed on to her children and grandchildren. She had a mischievous sense of humor, often playing pranks on unsuspecting people who were close to her. She loved all creatures great and small, and was always surrounded by a menagerie of pets. Hannah also enjoyed crafting, such as cross-stitching, embroidery, and crocheting. She was phenomenal cook who loved to share meals with family and friends. As a single mom, Hannah often overlooked her own needs, to ensure her children’s success and the needs of others. Her sacrifices for them are a shining example of her love for family and friends.

 

Survivors include two daughters, Dr. Gina Vick Bray (Richard) of Southaven and Hon. Malenda Harris Meacham (Rob) of Hernando; four grandchildren, Rachel Allyn Bray and Katie Scarlett Bray of Southaven; Hayden Lewis Meacham and Hannah Emmalyne Meacham of Hernando.

 

Hannah was preceded in death by her mother and father.

 

The family would like to especially thank Peggy Scott for her care, love, and friendship to Hannah.

 

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, July 15, 2016 at Tillatoba Baptist Church, 27085 Highway 330, Tillatoba, Mississippi. Hernando Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
