Martha Bell Parr
Wynn Funeral Home

Martha Bell Parr, 58, was born January 21, 1950.  She was the daughter of  Hannah Clemons and the late John L. Spearman.  Martha was  preceded in death by her husband, Shufford Parr; grandparents, Tom and Judy Clemons; and niece, Vanessa C. Johnson.

Left with many loving memories of Martha are her mother, Hannah Clemons and sister, Pearl Williams; 3 aunts:  Hattie Pettaway, Susanne Jones and Eliza Gipson; 2 uncles:  Paul Clemons and Kylser Clemons and a host of relatives who cherished and loved her dearly.

Martha was the owner and operator of Helping Hearts Facility for a number of years as well as a caregiver for many kids.  Robert Eiland (Bobby); Deshaundra Jones (Neecy), Aisheia Jones, and Demetrius Jones (Teeny) are but a few of the friends that she cared for and considered a part of her family.  There were also numerous other individuals in Martha's care that held a special place in her heart.  Each person was dear to her and she gave her time and love freely.  They reciprocated by loving her without reservation.
