Funeral Rites Set For Mrs. Venie Parker, 86

Mrs. Vernie Parker, 86, died at her home on the Sanders Ferry Road Saturday morning following a lengthy illness. Funeral services will be held at 11 o'clock this morning from the Unity church on the Sanders Ferry Road. Jones and Spigener will direct interment in the Caledonia cemetery.
Surviving are two daughters, Miss Addie Parker of Tuscaloosa and Mrs. Stella Hollahan, also of this city, and three sons, Wesley Parker of Tuscaloosa, Walter Parker of Northport and Ed Parker of Coker.

Note the various spellings of Mrs. Parker's given name (Viana, Venie, Vernie) and the Calcedonia/Caledonia church/cemetery.

Please recheck Clarissa's date of death. I did not locate any obit in the 8/31, 9/1 or 9/2, 1933 newspapers.
