Obituary

Flora Jean Costner, 90, passed away at Baptist Nursing Home in Calhoun City on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. Born October 29, 1929, in Newton, MS, she was the daughter of the late Bro. C.J. Purvis and the late Clytee Parker Purvis. She was a graduate of Bruce High School, and was a member of Banner Baptist Church. On February 19, 1949, she married M.D. Costner, and they spent 59 wonderful years together until his passing in 2008.
She was retired from North Mississippi Regional Center where she prepared special diets for the residents. Among her many hobbies were cooking, gardening, and canning vegetables. She also loved to oil paint. She was a caregiver to many people during her lifetime, and most of all to her family. She was blessed with many years here on earth, and she is now resting in her Heavenly home.
Pryor Funeral Home is honored to be serving the Costner family.
A Graveside Service celebrating her life will be held on Saturday, July 25, 2020, at 3:00pm at the Bruce Cemetery. Bro. Bobby Caples will be officiating with interment to follow at Bruce Cemetery.
Serving as Pallbearers will be Victor Merritt, Warren Bailey, Danny Kelly, Kevin Camp, Jason Camp, and Bruce Robinson.
Honorary Pallbearers will be Ted Camp and Thomas Camp.
She leaves behind her daughters, Marla (Roger) White of Pontotoc, Teresa (Joe) Spinks of Cedar Rapids, IA, and Lisa Costner of Calhoun City; grandchildren, Corey White and Tony (Maya) Spinks; and great-grandchildren, Aiden Spinks and Eli Spinks.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, M.D. Costner; granddaughter, Ashley Spinks; sisters, Faye Merritt, Mildred Roberts, and Frances Bailey; brothers, Bro. Enoch Purvis; and nephews, Neal Roberts, Mike Davis, and Mike Purvis.
Expressions of sympathy may be left for the family at pryorfuneralhome.com.

Pryor Funeral Home takes the health of our staff, our families, our visitors, and our community very seriously, and we are adhering to guidelines set forth by President Trump and Gov. Tate Reeves. At this time, we are asking everyone to support the limited gathering and visitation policy set by our government officials. We will be allowing small family groups and limiting the number of people in family rooms to 10 at one time at visitations, as well as funerals at the funeral home. For graveside services, we will be asking everyone to also comply with the required social distancing space of six feet. We’re also advising against hand-shaking, hugging, kissing and other intimate contact, and encourage the use of face masks.
