Martha Nell Cozart, age 96, of Batesville, MS, passed away Wednesday, May 4, 2022 at Baptist Memorial North Hospital in Oxford. She was born on January 5, 1926 in Bruce MS to the late Clarence and May (Tiner) Murphree.
Martha was the best mother that anyone could possibly have. She was fully involved in her family life from cooking three meals a day to ironing all the clothes, praying for her sons daily, and being there for everyone without question, including going to every sporting event her sons were a part of, which she undoubtedly learned while working on the family farm as a child. She was a member of Pleasant Hill Baptist Church where she served as a cook. She will be missed greatly by all.
In addition to her parents, Martha is preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, James D. Cozart, her granddaughter Renee Cozart, daughter-in-law Patricia, and all five of her siblings.
Martha will be lovingly remembered by her three sons Paul Cozart (Guadalupe), Wayne Cozart, and David Cozart (Amy), nine grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, and two great-great-grandchildren.
Visitation will be held on Sunday, May 8, 2022 at Twin Oaks Funeral Home from 1:00 pm until the time of the service at 2:00 pm. Burial will follow at Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Olive Branch.
Memorials may be made to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
