Margie Ann Haynes Hill
Margie Ann Haynes Hill, 75, of Jonesboro, passed from this life Friday, Feb. 21, 2020, at NEA Baptist Hospital in Jonesboro.
Margie was born Feb. 22, 1944, in Blytheville to Richard and Pauline Stallings Haynes. She had a large family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces. She truly enjoyed growing up among them. Margie was baptized, raised and married in Yarbro Baptist Church, later transferring her membership to the First Baptist Church of Jonesboro.
Margie was raised on the family farm in Yarbro. She loved working outside in her vegetable and flower gardens. She liked to go to farmer’s markets to buy purple hull and snap peas to shell by hand. She was really good at arranging flowers from her garden and said everything needed a little purple with it.
Margie retired from the Jonesboro School District where she was a teacher’s aide/paraprofessional working with children with special needs. She also worked for the Blytheville and Pulaski County school districts in the same capacity and as an office manager for Physical Therapy Associates.
Margie was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Jerry Wayne Hill, of the home; her son, Stephen Hill (Becky) of Charleston, S.C.; her daughter, Kelli Hill Barr of Jonesboro; grandchildren, Madison Felts (Corey) of Jonesboro, Peyton Barr of Jonesboro, Tyler Hill (K.C.) of Charleston, S.C., and Taylor Hill of Charleston, S.C.; great-grandchildren, Brooklyn Felts of Jonesboro and Charlotte “Charley” Hill of Charleston, S.C.; and brothers, Charles Richard Haynes (Brenda), Joe Lynn Haynes (Mary) and Marion Lee Haynes, all of Yarbro.
Funeral services will be conducted Thursday, Feb. 27, at 2 p.m. in the Cobb Funeral Home Chapel with burial following in Elmwood Cemetery. The family will receive friends and loved ones from 12 p.m. until service time at Cobb Funeral Home.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials in Margie’s name be made to Yarbro Baptist Church or a charity of their choice. Condolences may be expressed to the family at www.cobbfuneralhome.com.
