Mrs. Marchant loved making crafts so she volunteered at the nursing home each week up until the nursing had to restrict visitors due to Covid. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother who loved to cook, sew and fish. She was a long-time member of Zion Hope Baptist Church since 1949 where her husband had been a deacon before his death.
She is survived by her daughter Linda Marchant Calhoun of Cordele, and her grandson Josh Calhoun and his wife Kimberly of Rochelle.
