GEORGE W. HALLMARK

Aged Citizen Passes Away

The death of George W. Hallmark at the home of his daughter Mr. & Mrs. Walter Wright in the East Prentiss Community brought to a close the life of an outstanding citizen.

Mr. Hallmark was past 80 years of age and had lived in that section practically all his life. His wife passed on many years ago and since that time he lived with his children. Some four or five years ago he had a fall that caused the breaking of a hip that made him a cripple and confined him to his room most of the time since. A few days prior to his death he suffered a stroke of paralysis that hastened the end.

Mr. Hallmark was a very dependable man, he always stood for things he thought right; he always helped to make the community he lived in better; he was kind and affectionate in his home relations; he was always ready to contribute his part in aiding those who were down and out; in all relations of life he was honest and honorable; he took interest in his church and in the cause of education.

His funeral and burial took place at Friendship Friday. The services were conducted by Elder D. Shook of the Church of Christ at Belmont. A large crowd was in attendance as a tribute to one whom they had known for so many years.

He is survived by the following children: Mrs. Callie Gilley, Mrs. Seth Williams and Mrs. Walter Wright all of the East Prentiss Community.

The Independent joins the many friends in extending heart-felt sympathy to the bereaved children in the going of their beloved father.

DR. WALTER CAREY HEARN

October 22, 1990

In the fall of 1967, I Interviewed Dr. Carey Hearn for a position on the Blue Mountain College faculty to teach in the history department and to serve as head of the department. In December, 1967. he signed a contract to begin teaching with us in June, 1968. Twenty-two years working together have been good and fruitful ones. During those twenty-two years he was more than a faculty member, he was a good neighbor and a good friend.

We all share a great loss, and it is difficult for all of us; but, then, we know where he is and his influence will continue to be present in our lives. He was a wealthy man who, through his will, left something to each person present here today. I do not mean through his will which will be probated and with which his family and attorneys will deal in the next several weeks. I mean his will to live his life in such a way that he has left to each of us a legacy.

He left to me an understanding of the importance of faithful faculty. For you see, he was faithful in responsibility. He did his work at the College and assumed all responsibilities with dedication and commitment. If he were supposed to be in class, I did not have to check; I knew he was there. If he were supposed to be in a committee meeting or editing the self-study, one did not have to check or wonder if it would be done; t was always completed and completed on time. He was faithful to the tasks and to his responsibilities and to the College.

He left to me a renewed appreciation for the first and second Commandments found in Mark 12:30-31:

"And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, There is none other commandment greater than these."

For you see, Dr. Hearn loved his neighbors. He looked after my family, the dogs, the papers, and anything else that needed attention. He helped others and was interested in others. He even left his own family to stay with my mother and children one time when we were out of t and he saw a suspicious looking person on our side of the street. He did not lust help me as a neighbor, he helped all of his neighbors.

He left to me an appreciation of what a true friend really is because he was a good friend. I do not mean he agreed with everything I did, nor did I agree with everything he did. There were times when he would get aggravated with me and not have much to say to me, but our friendship was deeper than that and more sincere and transcended petty- differences and misunderstandings. During this past summer, while he was so ill, he gave me a beautiful plant to commemorate my twenty fifth anniversary as president of Blue Mountain College and our association during his tenure at the College.

He left to his family a depth of love that will bind them together through this crisis and the others they will face as well as through the good times and the bad. For you see, I have never known a man who loved his family more than did Carey Hearn!

He left to Betty the true meaning of love and devotion, a sense 4 worth and value, and the courage to carry on. For you see, this marital relationship was that he encouraged her and gave her a sense of independence even as he was setting the direct to and the course of action.

He left to Philip and Elizabeth an example of worthy fatherhood and the knowledge of parental love. For you see, he believed you should "train up a child in the way he should go and when he 3 old he will not depart there from."

He left to Philip and Elizabeth the challenge to develop themselves and ultimately rise to his expectations for their being the best and doing their best and the challenge to invest themselves through service to God and others as did he. He also left them the reward of knowing that when they have succeeded it will be a living memorial and a tribute to him, to his philosophy, and to his love.

He left to his colleagues the desire for you to be master teachers. For you see, he was a master teacher. He never taught a class, he always taught each student.

I He left to his colleagues the hope that you will prepare for the teaching assignments and the professional responsibilities. For you see, he did. When he realized he wanted to teach, he prepared himself, He got the formal education required, earning the master's and doctoral degrees. He continued to study in summer institutes and personal study and pursued his processional development. He was active in the Southern Historical and Mississippi Historcai societies and was recognized for his participation by being elected to positions of leadership. His professional ability was further recognized in his appointment to the Mississippi Council for the Humanities, which was another professional responsibility he discharged with distinction.

He left to ail of us the joy of blooming where we are planted. For you see, he did lust that. When he taught school in Potts Camp. he was not just a slxth.qrade teacher, he became active in the community and developed lasting friendships which manifested themselves in loving ways during his illness. When he lived in Holly Springs, he did not just teach history and geography in the secondary school, he participated in the activities at school as well as in the church and community. He did the same while in graduate school at the University of Mississippi and when he was on the (acuity at Coker College. When he moved to Blue Mountain, he was interested in the community and served as an alderman for twelve years. He was active in the local Methodist church. In fact, he attended the Methodist Annual Conference meeting in Tupelo this past Jund and became upset with Betty because she felt he was too tired to stay for the supper with the representatives of the rural churches.

He left to us a legacy and, as the psalmist said in Psalm 1, "He shall be like a tree planted by the rivets of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season his leaf also shall not wither."

I thank God for every remembrance of Dr. Carey Hearn ... For his life ... For his example and influence ... For his memory ... and for his legacy. We are fortunate to have received so much from him, and 1 am sure his challenge would be for u: to utilize what he has left in such a way that we, too, might be a blessing and an inspiration. Then I will be pronounced of us as of him, "Well done, thy good and faithful servant."

May we be equal to the task and have the courage to move forward in spint and in truth.

DAMARIS HASELTINE HARWELL HELLUMS

Damaris Haseltine Harwell Hellums, born June 16, 1900 in Tishomingo County, Mississippi, died Friday, January 2, 1998 at her home in Corinth, MS. She was 97 years old and a faithful and loving wife; blest to celebrate fifty years of marriage with her husband, A. G. “Arnie” Hellums, who died December 17, 1977. She was a member of the Church of Christ beginning her service to the Lord at an early age at the Clear Creek Church which was located near her childhood home in Tishomingo County. Through the years she worshipped at congregations in luka; Grand Junction, TN; Martin, TN; Oxford, MS; Milan, TN; and for the past 37 years at the Foote Street Church of Christ in Corinth.

Funeral services for Mrs. Hellums were Tuesday, January 6, 1998, at McPeters Chapel in Corinth with minister, Charles Curtis officiating as her family, relatives, and friends gathered to honor and remember her. Burial was in the Hellums family plot in the Henry Cemetery in Corinth.

Survivors include: her son, Charles Edwin Hellums and her daughter-in-law, Olivia Jane Cram Hellums; her grandchildren, Charles Edwin Hellums, Jr.; Olivia Anne Hellums Taylor, Stanley Neil Hellums, Melissa Lynn Hellums; nine great-grandchildren, Lydia Jane Hellums, Elizabeth Angeline Hellums, Jarod Neil Hellums, Ryan Neil Hellums, Haley Nichole Hellums, Kezia Anne Taylor, Anna Olivia Taylor, Natasha Leona Taylor, and Jerrod Alberts Taylor; several nieces and nephews. Mrs. Hellums, as she was referred to in a more respectful manner, was also called by her beautiful name, Damaris, to others she was known as Hassie, to closer relatives she became “Auntie” and to her grandchildren, she was “Mamma”. She was the sixth of seven children born to Dewitt Clinton Harwell and Minnie Jane Flynt Harwell at their home place which stood at Harwell Mountain, located north-west of Iuka in Tishomingo County. Preceding her in death in addition to her parents and husband were her still-born son, Arnie Jr.; her brothers and sisters, Wilford Dudley Harwell, Nellie Katherine Harwell Brooks, Ernest Kaufman Harwell, Ina Little Harwell Dexter, Elizabeth Harwell, and Robert Edwin Harwell.

During her youth Damaris Haseltine attended several one-room schools including Harmony School in Tishomingo County and at times was taught by her eldest sister Nell, as were her sister, Mary and brother, Edwin.

Beginning her professional life, she taught at Mulberry School in Paden in Tishomingo County from 1925 until 1928 and married A. G. Hellums on April 20, 1927. Remembering her mother’s teaching, her life was fashioned upon the principles of “honesty, independence, and character” thus she passed these traits on to her son and grandchildren. Serving as a loyal companion to her husband, she worked during the Depression performing duties with the Works Progress Administration; taught in the Alcorn County School system, sold world Book Encyclopedia and sold Prestige Silver Service through out  her life, she maintained her great strength of character gaining the respect of those she associated with. Her love for the Lord and His work was evidenced through her as the Scriptures were reflected by her conduct, gentle and caring nature, as she served alongside her husband as a leader in the church and as the wife of an elder. Her life, both public and private revolved around those that she loved and valued most - her family. Favorite hobbies by which she is remembered as being well accomplished at include: playing the piano, singing, gardening, sewing and crocheting.

Her health diminished greatly in recent months; however, she retained her sweet disposition, an abundance of knowledge and wisdom, and her refreshing sense of humor, which delighted her family and caregivers especially during the last days as an extension of her love and comfort to them. Heaven claimed a victory at her death and those whose lives she touched consider themselves most fortunate and blessed by her influence and the example she set before them.

Memorials may be made to American Cancer Society

 

 

HENRY J. HELLUMS

In Memory of Henry J. Hellums

Whereas, the Creator of the Universe has, in His infinite wisdom seen fit to call from our midst our beloved friend and brother, Henry J. Hellums; and whereas, he was a friend of man, a devout Christian, a lover of Masonery, a true husband and a loving father; therefore be it resolved, that we, his survivors and friends, hereby attempt to express our thankfulness that such a man has lived among us and at the same time acknowledge our sincere regret at his passing from us.

Brother Hellums was born 4 January 1866, three miles south of Burnsville, Miss. For approximately thirty years he had been a member of the Missionary Baptist Church. He demitted from the Burnsville Lodge No. 233, F & AM, in 1890 to become a charter member of Robert G. Smith Lodge No. 412.

That he was a good citizen is proved by his having served two terms as Mayor of the village of Paden. That he was slow to anger and a lover of peace is attested by the evidence of all who know him; the host of people who visited him in his last illness at his home in Russellville, Ala., where he died on August 16th, as well as the unusually large crowd present at the interment by the Masonic Order at Forked Oak Cemetery on August 18th, all of one accord, signify their honor and respect for such a man.

It was ever the policy of the deceased that "soft words turneth away wrath", and although he is gone from us, we have the assurance that "blessed is the peacemaker for he shall be called the Child of God."

Brother Hellums was married four times. The first was to Miss Mollie Tennison, the second was to Miss Josie Tennison, the third was to Miss Mattie Belle Shackelford and the fourth was to Mrs. Minnie Belle Owens. He suffered the disappointment of losing his first wife after only seven years of marriage. The second likewise died seven years after marriage. The death of the third wife left him with six motherless children. The fourth wife/ although she had five fatherless children, has been able since her marriage to Brother Hellums, by the Cooperation of his loving character, to cause harmony and peace to continue to reign in his home. No discrimination was shown in the home among the children. Each parent was a parent to all alike. Each child mourns alike the death of "Uncle Henry".

The bereaved are: Two brothers, John and Raymond Hellums; four sisters, Mrs. George Sanders, Mrs. Mat McAnally, Mrs. Dink Butler and Mrs. Dollie Owens; five sons, Arnie, Earl, Mearl, Millard and Prentiss Hellums; three daughters, Mrs. Gene Isbell, Miss Hattie Rae and Jimmy Hellums; His devoted wife and her children, W. G. and Kay Owens, Mrs. R. A. Nixon, Miss Lila and Miss Lola Owens and a host of other relatives and friends.
