Me Odella’s church, her neighbors, family and friends will surly miss this lady. She was more than a neighbor to me, she was family. She never wanted to ask for help but was always there to offer her help when needed. I don’t know what I would have done without her when I broke my arm. She helped my in so many ways. I already miss her riding to church with me and I miss seeing that little white head walking pass on her daily walk. I cherish knowing her and I can just hope to seeing her again with our God.

Paris church of Christ members will greatly miss Mrs. Odella's presence and smile. She loved everyone at church and was so thoughtful to give children candy at holidays. She loved to visit in church members' homes for meals and special occasions.

Dixie, Will, and Abby will dearly miss her. They affectionately call her Grandma Candy as she always had candy for them. We all enjoyed our visits with her. She had a wonderful loving spirit. She will be missed by our family. You are in our prayers at this time.
