Our beloved mother, Clara Juanita Dell passed away peacefully on May 17th at Friend’s Nursing Home in Sandy Spring, Maryland. She was 103 ½ years old.
She was predeceased by her husband of 48 years, Homer, her 5 siblings and her eldest son, LaMarr.
Clara is survived by her daughter, Mercla Smith and son, Russell Dell. She is also survived by her 10 grandchildren, 30 great-grand children and 2 great-great grandchildren.
Clara loved the Lord and served Him by teaching children’s Sunday School classes and serving with the WMU for years at North Jacksonville Baptist Church where she was a member for 66 years. When she was no longer able to attend church she continued to pray faithfully for those she loved. She enjoyed crocheting and passed that knowledge on to several of her grandchildren. She will be dearly missed but we take comfort in knowing we will see her again.
Memorial services will be held at North Jacksonville Baptist Church on September 26. 2020 at 3 PM.
There will a reception after the memorial service. Please RSVP by text to 678-761-1549 if you plan on staying for the reception so that we may have a count for food preparation purposes.
