She was born in Lamar Co. on July 18, 1922 to the late Samuel Alonzo and Emma Gertrude Liles. She graduated from Roxton High School as Salutatorian of the Class of 1939.

On September 12, 1942 she married Coy Eldon Todd in Honey Grove, Texas. While he was in the Army Air Corps, stationed in China, Burma, and India during World War II, she lived at Roxton. When he returned in 1945 they moved to Paris.

Una Bell was a “stay at home Mom” until the youngest of their children started to school. She worked as a sales clerk at Levine’s, Dick House’s Good Housekeeping Shop, Spangler’s, and Kroger. Then she got a “dream job” at Town & Country Travel. She loved travel and she loved people, so for ten years she enjoyed helping others with their travels plans.

After her husband passed away in 1987 she worked part time as a sitter with patients in the hospital and as a volunteer at Co-Ministry for ten years.

As a member of Immanuel Baptist Church for more than fifty years she had been a Sunday School Teacher, Women’s Missionary Union Leader, Children’s Mission Friends Leader and Church Librarian.

She was preceded in death by parents, her husband of 45 years, sisters, Otha Mae Walsh and Ruth Evelyn Merritt and brother Ralph Liles.

Surviving are sons Glenn & Kay Todd and David and Amy Todd; daughters Joye Nix and Sarah & Chris Gies; grandchildren Steve and Jennifer Todd, Cathy & Ken Schacker, Clinton Nix, Clayton Nix, Lane & Hillary Patterson, Ryan Todd and Ross Todd., and Kirby Sator.; great grandchildren Dylan Nix, Levi Nix and Amanda Nix, Miles Patterson; brother Harold & Betty Liles; sister Violet (Sue) Carroll; sister-in-law Ruth Liles; a great number of nieces and nephews and many cherished friends.

Because she was aware there were so many needy people here in Paris, Una Bell requests that any memorials be made to the charitable organization of choice.
