Jessibelle Babb Flowers
Jessibelle Jean Babb Flowers, 89, passed away on Sept. 24, 2018 at Senatobia Healthcare and Rehab.
She was born Dec. 9, 1928 in Sand Springs, Okla, to Joseph Elbridge Babb and Edna Dawson Babb.
The Dust Bowl effects on that state forced her family to move west to California and they resettled there when she was a young child. She finished high school at San Luis Obispo, Calif. and began her college career at the Bible Institute of Los Angeles.
She was 16 when she met a good looking 21 year old WWII Army man right before his discharge back home to Mississippi. They wrote letters and courted long distance for 2½ years before she married John Flowers in 1948 and moved to Mississippi. She continued her education at Mississippi College in Clinton and then received her Bachelor of Religious Education degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where they were both enrolled. Being the wife of a pastor brought several moves - and daughters - and her servant spirit was used in each setting.
Mrs. Flowers used her talents over the years to touch all ages. She taught 4th grade Sunday School at First Baptist Church, Senatobia, for many years sometimes teaching lessons with her elaborate flannel graph illustrations, and “wordless book.” One of her great loves was creating countless wardrobes for her daughters. The wedding dress she designed and crafted for her oldest daughter won 1st place in Memphis at the Mid-South Fair. She was adept at several sewing techniques and lent her services to many in the area when asked.
She loved music. She sang for years in the choir at FBC and could also play the flute and piano. Mrs. Flowers was a member of the Cosmopolitan Club for over 50 years and served as an officer for that organization. She worked part-time in Senatobia at B/C Printing Co. and Tomlinson’s Fabric Store before fully retiring. Even then she reached out to those in the Convalescent Center when she would go assist the ladies with manicures and read to the residents on a regular basis during their activity sessions.
Mrs. Flowers was a much loved lady, trusted friend, confidant, caregiver, teacher, and truly consistent Christian example of a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother who has now heard the words,
“Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”
She is survived by 1 brother, Joseph J. Babb (Eleanore) of San Jose, CA, her daughters, Becky Wallace (Charles) of Brandon; Rachel Roberts (Steven) of Cordova, Tenn.; and Ruth Patch of Rutland, Mass.; six grandchildren, John Wallace (Hannah), Elizabeth Wallace Moore (Chris), Daniel Roberts (Emily), Olivia Roberts; Tim Patch (Alexandra) and Amy Patch; and 4 great grandchildren, Ivy Wallace, Zeritu “ZZ” Wallace, Emerson Moore and Evangeline Roberts. She was preceded in death by her parents, Joseph E. Babb and Edna Dawson Babb, brothers David Lee Babb and Timothy Carl Babb, her husband of almost 70 years, Dr. John W. Flowers and their infant son Philip Murrell Flowers.
 Services were Sept. 28 at First Baptist Church in Senatobia. Burial followed in Bethesda Cemetery.
Memorials may be sent to First Baptist Church Senatobia or The John and Jessie Flowers Endowed Scholarship at NWCC Foundation, Senatobia, MS (662-560-1103).

Hal Speer Jr.
Harold “Hal” Francis Speer, Jr.. , 67, passed away on Oct. 5, 2018, at Baptist-DeSoto Hospital in Southaven, due to complications from a heart condition and dialysis.
He fought long and hard but resulting weakness won. He joins the other stars in the universe but there is no doubt that he will shine brighter. His love, kindness, generosity, humor and genuine understanding of people were warmly felt by many who will feel the loss of this wonderful man. He lived in his adopted home of Senatobia, a small town in which he felt total peace.
Hal was born on Aug. 21, 1951, in Memphis, to Harold Sr. and Bobbie Speer. During his high school career, he was an outstanding athlete. He was a defensive end and a running back on his football team, and he played on a summer league baseball team of former Kingsbury High School players.
He retired after working several years as a Director for the Grand Casino in Tunica County, a job that he loved and one in which he was loved and respected by his co-workers. He enjoyed the game of golf and played a very good game until back problems stopped his participation. But, thanks to the Golf Channel, he was still able to watch the game. Nothing made him happier than watching college football games and UT, the University of Tennessee, was his very favorite ... although he would be quick to say that their performance has been lacking in recent years.
Hal was preceded in death by his loving parents Harold, Sr., and Bobbie Speer and his sweet sister Shirley Speer.
Hal is survived by his wife Charlotte of Senatobia, for whom he was everything. He loved his son Jon [Lisa] of Olive Branch. Also, he loved his three step-children, John [GG] of Hernando; Debra [Michael] of Hernando and Matthew of Bellingham, Wash. He loved and felt so proud of his grandchildren: Daxton, Greyson, Heather, Haley [Dustin], Cassidy, Ryan and Seth - and one little great-grandchild, Ellie. He loved and felt extremely close to his beloved brother Wayne [Aimee] of Jonesborough, Tenn., having spent many hours laughing and reminiscing about childhood memories.
Among those who will miss Hal are life-long friends Carole and Jimmy Epley, whom he loved and considered valued members of his family. Hal would want to offer a sincere thank-you to two people who were special to him: Jean Haskell for a long-lasting friendship and Jan Speer for many shared years together. Leaving behind are many cousins who have cherished memories. Hal’s cat Lucky will miss him as he enjoyed petting her, listening to her purr. Last but definitely not least, Hal would want to offer a special thank-you to Dr. Todd Edwards, whom he believed had kept him alive for 16 years.
Respecting his wishes, his ashes will be spread in Cades Cove, a place he found peaceful and beautiful. Hal was generous to a fault with his money and his time. His sense of humor kept those who knew him laughing right out loud. Family and friends and former co-workers will feel an immense loss. Anyone coming in contact with Hal will remember his huge heart. Kindness, generosity and forgiveness were hallmarks of a life well lived. Rest in peace, sweet Hal ... and, no, nobody can ever take your place.
