Mrs. Edna Bell (Nanny) Dusenberry, age 90 of Paris, Texas graduated from earth to heaven from the home of Wade and Darla Eadie in Kilgore, Texas and was welcomed into the arms of God Tuesday July 14, 2020.
Edna was born on August 30, 1929 in Memphis, Texas and was preceded in death by her loving and dear husband of 59 years Melvon Dusenberry, parents Pink and Katherine Rhoades, brothers Clyde, Shelby and Douglas Rhoades, along with infant great-granddaughter Teigan Marie DeLay.
Mrs. Dusenberry greatly loved, served and was a lifelong member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Paris where she trusted Jesus Christ as her savior and Lord at the age of 21 while attending with her soon to be husband Melvon and hearing and trusting the gospel.
Mrs. Dusenberry was a devoted wife, an incredible mother, a caring grandmother and a godly and compassionate friend who enjoyed reading her bible, cooking, TV gameshows, gospel music and spending time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Edna is survived by a daughter, Darla Eadie (Wade) of Kilgore, Texas; sons, Brad Dusenberry (Terri) of Cameron, Texas and Mark Dusenberry (Mayra) of Paris, and grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
