Josephine “Mema” Huff, 94, of Mountain Pine, Arkansas, died Saturday, April 8, 2017. She was born December 28, 1922, in Hot Springs, to John William and Rowena (Harris) Carpenter. Josephine’s most satisfying accomplishment was teaching Sunday School for 35 years and working with Vacation Bible School for 47 years at Cedar Glades Baptist Church. She was known by many as “Mema”, and she prayed that her family would never leave Jesus behind.
