MANTACHIE – Our beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother stepped into Heaven on Thursday, October 22, 2020, after 91 years and 9 months of living a life of love and compassion. She was radiant as her Lord and Savior greeted her. She was welcomed into Heaven by her husband, Woodrow F. Bunch; her parents, Henry Houston and Era Gertrude Brazile Berryman; her loving brother, Dalton Berryman; and sister, Ilene Berryman Tyra.

Her children, Paul Bunch (Marcia), Carolyn Parrish (Glenn), and David Bunch (Denesa), all of Mantachie, MS, celebrate her life of teaching them by example, faith, honesty, and the value of hard work.

Her grandchildren, Christopher Parrish (Tammy), Michael Bunch (Cristal), Lindsey Parrish Christian, Ben Bunch (Megan), Cody Bunch (Katie), Wesley Bunch, and Kristen Bunch, loved their grandmother who taught them about nature, love of all living things, and the joy of family.

Her great-grandchildren, Will Christian, Noah Howard, Elizabeth Christian, Noah Bunch, Bea Bunch, and Mika Bunch, will forever have loving memories of her, her hugs, and her cookie jar.

A service celebrating the life of Era Christene Berryman Bunch will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, October 24, under the pavilion at Oak Grove Cemetery in the Ratliff community with Bro. Danny Rushing officiating. Visitation will be from 12:30 p.m. until service time at the pavilion. McNeece-Morris Funeral Home of Mantachie is in charge of arrangements.

  1. Dear Bunch family, I am so sorry for your loss. The death of a loved one brings great pain and sorrow, but you can have comfort. In the Bible at
    2 Corinthians 1:3,4 it calls our Heavenly Father “The God of all comfort” so He is always there for you to help you deal with this difficult time. I hope this brings the family some encouragement.
