Louise Parker Nelson

May 15, 1934 — December 7, 2023

Calhoun

Louise “Momma Lou” Parker Nelson, 89, of Calhoun, Georgia passed away Thursday, December 7, 2023.  She was born in Gordon County on May 15, 1934, to the late Grady and Jessie Kay Parker.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Rayford Parker, Freeman Parker, and Kenneth Parker; sister Clistia Pledger; children, Frances Nichols, Yvonne Fuquea, Warren Smith; grandchildren, Kenny Fuquea, Steve Lee.  She was married to the love of her life and father of her children, Hoke Albert Smith in 1959, until his passing in 1981.  She later married Joe Nelson, who passed away in 1990.

Louise was always at her best when she was working with Senior adults at various events. She always took charge as the Master of Ceremonies and was the self-appointed Bingo caller because everyone could hear her. She was a member of the Senior Adult “Rocking Chair Band” and never became aware that she was a senior adult herself. Louise just generally loved being around people and knew almost everyone.  She was a faithful member of Newtown Baptist Church.  Louise was blessed with much love from her kids, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.  Momma Lou was a special lady with a beautiful heart.  Everywhere she would go, she would tell people “Jesus loves you and so do I.”  Heaven is rejoicing to have a precious warrior home!

She is survived by her children, Anthony (Tonya) Smith, Carter (K.K.) Smith, Robbie Cox, sister, Bobbie Mattos; grandchildren, Allison Hill, Amanda Hernandez, Maggie Burns, Hannah Smith, Holly Hall, Marleigh Smith, Mike Lee, Tina Lovell, Kevin Smith, Heath Smith, Kim Nix, Kelly Brittain; great-grandchildren, Hadley Hill, Logan Hernandez, Bodhi Hernandez, Carter Smith, Whit Padgett, JonHoke Hall, Bowen Hall, Colby Smith, Braden Smith, Emily Smith.  Many nieces, nephews, and other relatives also survive.

Funeral services will be held at 3:00 PM on Monday, December 11, 2023, from the chapel of Max Brannon and Sons with Rev. Eddie Brannon and Rev. Brandon Bishop officiating.  Burial will follow in Fain Cemetery.  Pallbearers serving are Kevin Smith, Heath Smith, Jon Hall, Colby Smith, Braden Smith, Dr. Kirby Peden, and Trey Padgett.
