Sara Belle Gardner Bunting Parsons passed away November 19, 2017.  She was born July 9, 1917 in Whaleyville, VA.  Sara Belle was preceded in death by her parents Charlie and Christmas Belle Gardner, husbands H. Truston Bunting and Robert R. Parsons, Jr., and sister Marion Simmons                                                                                                               

 Left to cherish her memory are her son Bill Bunting (Sandra), two grandchildren Lyn Bunting and Chris Bunting (Julie), and two great grandchildren Sydney and Drew.

Sara Belle enjoyed many pastimes but her favorites were spending time with her family, meeting friends for lunch at The Circle, and vacationing with Bob at the Anacapri in Fort Lauderdale.  She was a member of Monumental Methodist Church and a 1935 graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School. In 1973 she retired from Norfolk Naval Shipyard after 30 years of service.  Earlier this year she received a Proclamation from the City of Portsmouth in commemoration of her 100th birthday.

Her family would like to thank the staff of Bickford of Suffolk for their loving care and nurturing environment and Heartland Hospice (Kim & Sarah) for making her comfort their top priority.

A graveside service will be held at 11 am on Friday, November 24, 2017 at Forest Lawn Cemetery 8100 Granby St. Norfolk, VA.  Afterwards, the family will receive guests at Bill and Sandra’s home in Sterling Cove from 2:00-4:00 pm. The family is being assisted by Baker-Foster Funeral Home. Condolences may be offered below.
