Obituary

Funeral service celebrating the life of Thelma “Marie” Sims, 90, of Calhoun, LA will be held at 11:00am, Monday, January 6, 2020 at Souls Harbor United Pentecostal Church in Calhoun, with Rev. Jimmy Masters officiating.
Interment will follow at Mt. Zion Cemetery in Calhoun, under the direction of Griffin Funeral Home.
Family will receive friends for visitation, Sunday, January 5, 2020 from 5pm-8pm, at the church.

Marie was born July 7th, 1929 in Yazoo, MS and passed away January 4th, 2020 in her longtime home in Calhoun surrounded by family, where so many memories were shared. She was a devoted wife to W.Z. “Dub” Sims for 63 and a half years until his passing in 2009. She lived for her husband and family which were second only to her relationship with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was a member of the First United Pentecostal Church of Calhoun (Souls Harbor) from the age of 16, when she married W.Z. She attended church every time the doors were open and always invited her loved ones to go with her. She loved carrying her grandkids to Sunday school with her as well. She was an example of how to be a prayer warrior and instilled christian values in the lives of her children and grandchildren.

Marie, a mother of eight, stayed home with her children while they were young and in school. She made her family three meals a day and was famous for her tomato gravy and biscuits, chicken and dumplings, and fried apple pies. After a lifetime of cooking for her family she was tired. Marie stopped cooking after WZ passed. That didn’t stop her from enjoying a good meal though. Marie enjoyed family gatherings or any event involving food and friends. Let us not forget how much she loved going out to eat with her family, especially when they took her out for fried fish. Marie did work some outside of the home after her children were grown. She was employed by the Ouachita Parish School Board for several years in the cafeteria.

Marie is preceded in death by her husband, W.Z. Sims; three sons, David Timothy “Timmy” Sims, Robert Larry Sims, and Micheal Wayne Sims; granddaughter, Natalie Bentz Lenard, and parents Claude and Daisy Warren.

Those left to cherish Marie’s memories include her children Linda Murphy and husband Charles, Randy Sims and wife Gloria, Debbie Waldroup and husband Ken, Gary Sims and wife Renea, Dewanna Hutto; daughter-in-law, Debbie Sims, fifteen grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews; also survived by a host of extended family and friends.

Pallbearers will be Robbie Bentz, Justin Grayson, Paul Hutto, David Masters, Dillon Murphy and Chris Walker.

A special thanks to Ascend Hospice for their loving care.
