Martice's Funeral Costs

Martice Pharr Donley passed away from Cancer on 6/13/16. She had been fighting this painful disease for 3 and a half years so all resources are long gone. Hoping to lend a financial hand to the family to help them pay at least for funeral costs. Martice was a very sweet lady who never met a stranger and for sure never made an enemy. She was deeply rooted in the Smyrna community as a dance teacher for small children and a cheer coach. Both her parents volunteered many years as well. Her father Bill is a retired Atlanta Fire Captain who has had to keep working to provide for the family. He was a Smyrna Youth Hero because he coached many, many teams. Martice's mom Sharon also was a cheer coach.  They are of course broken hearted. Martice also leaves behind her brother Billy and her beautiful young daughter Taylor.

My name is Vanessa Lockridge & I'm only a representative of the people who love her and are trying to raise funds. Jerry Jenkins, who was "adopted" by the Pharr family a long time ago (as were many of us) and also Anthony Heaton, who is a cancer fighter and friend/former classmate of Martice. They have walked in Relay for Life together.  Myself & Martice, along with many others became friends in school. We graduated in 1984 from Campbell High in Smyrna. Lots of CHS alumni love and will always remember Martice. Her spirit was unforgettable.

If you could please help us help them, we would be very grateful. This family has been through so much and if we could relieve them of some expenses, if we could reduce their burden just a smidge.. 

Anything you could give, no gift too small.  On behalf of 
the Pharr family, "Thank you for your compassion, generosity, and love."
