Marion Bumpers

August 6, 1926 — June 5, 2020

Marion “Bumpy” Bumpers, 93, of Grove Hill, passed away Friday, June 5, 2020 at Jackson Medical Center. She was born in Selma on August 6, 1926 to Robert Albert Bumpers and Martha Williams Bumpers, both of who preceded her in death.

She was a member of the Grove Hill United Methodist Church, Grove Hill Community Study Club, the Grove Hill Bridge Club and was a board member of the Grove Hill Public Library. She remained active in many of the activities of Grove Hill until her health began to fail in recent months and was unofficially dubbed the “Queen of Grove Hill” by those closest to her.

She is survived by her many, many close friends and relatives
