Canton- On Monday, October 4, 2021, Marjorie Helen Klein Parris, age 73, was carried home by the Heavenly angels and is now resting in her place of glorious peace.

Marjorie was born April 5, 1948 in Davenport, Iowa, and had made her home in Haywood County for the past 32 years.  She was a devoted homemaker, a talented artisan and her handmade crafts were simply beautiful. She enjoyed watching her favorite western movies on television, and the special time she spent with her family, especially her children and grandchildren, brought her great joy and happiness.  Wonderful memories of summer family cookouts with her family are memories they each will cherish forever.  Marjorie was a lady of strong faith and she attended Welcome Home Ministries. We rejoice for the Heavenly home-going of Marjorie Helen Klein Parris, a loving wife, and wonderful grandmother and great-grandmother, and give thanks for her precious life.

Mrs. Parris was preceded in death by her parents, William Klein and Leona Lindsey Klein; three sisters, and two brothers.

Surviving are her loving husband of 55 years, James “Jim” Parris of Canton; a son, John Parris and wife, JoAnn Parris of Canton; her daughter, Sue Ann Parris of Florida; grandchildren, John Jr., Kristy, Gabriella, and Jamie; great-grandchildren, Breanna, Matthew, James, Aubrey, and little baby Phillip who is a blessing on the way.

A funeral service will be held at 2:00 pm Friday, October 8, 2021 in the chapel of Crawford / Ray Funeral Home. Pastor Alan Mathis and Pastor John Parris will be officiating. The family will be receiving friends at the funeral home one hour prior to the funeral service. Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the Parris family.
