May Bell Johnson Bryant, 93, went to meet her heavenly Father on Thursday, Dec. 28, 2017. She was born on May 29, 1924, in Coffee County, Alabama, to George Madison and Molly Idell Johnson.

She married the love of her life, Walter Frank Bryant, on Dec. 30, 1950. They moved to Winter Garden in 1951, where they raised their children and called it home until the Lord called them home.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Frank; son, Danny; her parents; eight siblings; and grandson, Matt Bryant.

May Bell was a stay-at-home wife and mother who was self-employed as a seamstress for many years. She was a quiet servant of God who loved doing things for others and for her church, Garden Cathedral Church of God.

She will be greatly missed by her children, Sue (David) Robertson, Eddie (Kathy) Bryant and Teddie Bryant. Her grandchildren who were privileged to call this special lady their “Granny” are Valerie (Carlos) Tellez, Corrie (Nick) Mastin, Felecia Bryant, Jeremy Bryant and Chad Robertson; as well as her nine great-grandchildren.

She loved us all selflessly and was a pillar of strength and humbleness. What a perfect example of a Godly woman who loved her family unconditionally!

Thank you to the special staff members of Health Central Park who loved and cared for our mother during the final stages of her earthly journey. A funeral service was held at Baldwin-Fairchild Funeral Home in Winter Garden, followed by burial at Winter Garden Cemetery, on Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2018.
