Margaret Ann Parsons was born on Thursday, Jan. 13, 1977, in Natchez, MS, and passed away Friday, Sept. 22, 2023, in Flowood, MS. In loving memory of Margaret, a remarkable woman whose life was a testament to the power of love and family bonds. She was a devoted wife, mother, sister, and aunt, who found her greatest joy in spending time with her family. Margaret’s love for Halloween was legendary, as she relished the spirit, fun, and memories that came with it. Her laughter, as she watched the children’s delighted faces, will forever echo in our hearts. Margaret had an endearing quirk – her aversion to having her picture taken. Yet, her beauty radiates from within, and her warm smile brightens the lives of all who knew her.
Above all, Margaret was immensely proud of her daughter’s accomplishments, celebrating every milestone and triumph with unwavering support and love. As we say goodbye to Margaret, let us remember her for the love, laughter, and family unity she brought into our lives. Her legacy lives on in the hearts of her family, who will cherish her memory forever.
