Margaret O'Dell

Margaret O’Dell, of Holly Springs, Mississippi, passed away at Holly Springs Rehabilitation
and Healthcare Center on November 1, 2022. She was born October 15, 1946, to the late
Charles Dee O’Dell and Fonta Woodson O’Dell. She was raised in rural Marshall County
Mississippi and graduated from Holly Springs High School in Holly Springs, MS. Margaret
loved her home and birthplace on O’Dell Road, Chulahoma, MS, and enjoyed taking
photographs around the natural habitat of the property. She faithfully fed her beloved birds
and enjoyed the flowers her mother planted. Over the years she accompanied her mother
to the Marshall County Library Board meetings and many sporting events at Holly Springs
High and Marshall Academy. Listening to football on the radio was a favorite pastime for
them both.

O’Dell, in addition to her parents. She is survived by nephew Charles Dee O’Dell, II,
(Christina) of Charlotte, NC; nieces Patricia Lewis (Alan) of Horn Lake, Ellen Hood of
Hernando, and Lisa Hickman(Gary) of Holly Springs; cousins Ann Carpenter and Virginia
Mitchell, both of Holly Springs; and sisters-in-law Ruth O’Dell of Oxford, MS, and Vicki O’Dell
of Holly Springs.

A service is planned for 2:00 on November 7, at the Holly Springs Funeral Home. Visitation will begin at 1:00. Burial will follow immediately after the service, at Hill Crest Cemetery.

The family would like to express sincere appreciation to Margaret’s sister-in-law, Vicki
O’Dell, who provided Margaret companionship, advocacy, and love after the death of her
mother and brothers.
