Ida was born and raised in Leakesville, MS. She joined the New Providence Baptist Church at a young age. During her adult years, she had her first daughter, Vicky Taylor Land. Later, she married Jack Parker, and to this union one child was born, Jacquelyn Pierce.
She worked several jobs, but was best known as a cook at Piggly Wiggly and at Rocky Creek Catfish Cottage. She also worked at the Basila and Neely factory in the town of Leakesville.
She was an active member in the New Providence Baptist Church, where she served as Vice President of the Choir, Senior Mission, as was called the Mother of the Church. She was often known for her stylish hats and suits she would wear. You could catch her on any given Sunday marching down the center of the aisle, headed to the choir stand.
Then in her later years, she married her late husband, Mr. Azariah Denson, Sr., and they lived together until his untimely death. Her children Vicky and Jacquelyn preceded her in death as well. She leaves to cherish her memory ReShawnda McLeod, James D. Taylor, Jamesa Taylor, and Shambreea Pierce, all of Leakesville MS. Ida also leaves behind three great grandchildren (Honesty, Isaiah, and Tyrian McLeod), and a host of nieces and nephews.
“GOD IS SO GOOD TO US” were words that always came from her mouth and she held on to them until she left this earth to be with the LORD. She will be forever cherished and remembered by the community.
