Obituary

Hattie Sue Waggoner Jones, 98, died on Monday, September 10 at Lincoln Care Center in Fayetteville, TN. A native of Lynchburg, TN, and graduate of Moore County High School, she lived there until moving to Fayetteville in 1931. She worked with Dr. Robert McCown, making house calls with him and assisting in the home deliveries of several babies in the late 1930’s.

Hattie Sue married Earle Hopkins Jones, Jr., in 1940 and they moved a few months later to Washington, DC, where they remained for nearly 50 years. Their daughter and son were both born and
grew up in the DC area. She worked part-time in the offices of two physicians in the Virginia suburbs of DC while her children were growing up. In 1989 she and her husband returned to Fayetteville, where they enjoyed church and family activities. Her husband died in March 2005, shortly after they observed their 65th wedding anniversary. At the time of her death, Hattie Sue was the oldest female member of Fayetteville First Presbyterian Church.

Survivors include her daughter Susan Jones Smith of Huntsville, AL; her son Earle H. Jones III of Arlington, VA; her grandson Alan Wayne Smith of St. Augustine, FL; five nieces, eight nephews and their spouses and children.

Visitation will be at Higgins Funeral Home in Fayetteville on Tuesday, September 11 from 6 to 8 PM. A graveside service will be held in Rose Hill Cemetery (Fayetteville) on Wednesday, September 12 at 11 AM. Memorial donations may be made to the Good Samaritan Association, 208 W. Davidson Street, Fayetteville, TN 37334 or to Macular Degeneration Research, PO Box 1952, Clarksburg, MD 20871.

    I am very sorry for your loss, you have my deepest sympathy. Hattie Sue was my great-grandfather, Roy H. Parks, step-daughter. Roy married Laura Mai Waggoner after the death of her first husband, Hattie’s father. Hattie was also related (4th cousin) through the Waggoner family. After being married 65 years to Earle, I am sure Earle has been anxiously waiting to be with Hattie Sue again.

    Please accept my deepest sympathy. I did no know Ms. Waggoner personally, but I do know the pain of losing someone as special as a mom. May your family find comfort as I have in knowing that our loving heavenly Father promises us that very soon he will ‘wipe out every tear from our eyes, and death will be no more.’ (Revelation 21:4) What a wonderful day that wil be!

    What a dear, sweet person your mother was and she will surely be missed by all of the members of First Presbyterian Church as well as other friends and family. We so enjoyed when Earl and Hattie Sue were active in our church. They were such a joy to be around. We will be thinking about you during this sad time.
