Mrs. Liza Chappell Parker passed away peacefully on April 1, 2021, the day before her 90th birthday, at her apartment at Magnolia Manor Retirement Center. Both of her children were by her side.
Funeral services are planned for 11:00 AM on Monday, April 5, from the graveside at Oak Grove Cemetery. Rev.

Mrs. Parker was a faithful member of First United Methodist Church and loved her Sunday School, the Epworth Class. She was also an honorary member of the Junior Service League. She was a very loving mother and a very special Meme to her granddaughters and great-grandchildren.
