Obituary for Josephine Huff

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.

“As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.” Psalm 17:15

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Leonard Huff; brothers, John and Willis Carpenter; sisters, Mary Etta, Ellen, Ruby, Minnie, Ollie, and Ester Carpenter; and son, Jimmy Huff.

Survivors include daughters, Jo Lynnette Cockman (Jimmy), Lynn Lambert (Sammy); son, Johnny Huff (Jeanne); step-daughter, Wanda Priddy (David); step-son Leonard Ray Huff; daughter-in-law, Nina Huff; grandchildren, Tanya Beckwith (Darren), Darin Huff, Michael Huff (Kimberly), Cathy Nesbit (Grant), Bryan Lambert (Amber), Lyndsey Lambert; great-grandchildren, Bricen, Micah and Kaile Nesbit, Paige and Colby Lambert, Brady and Braden Huff, Bristol, Sawyer, and Rider Huff; and Hayden Beckwith.

Visitation will be Monday 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Caruth Village Funeral Home. Funeral Service will be 10:00 am Tuesday at Cedar Glades Baptist Church with Bro. James Preuett, Bro. Kevin McDaniel and Bro. Mike Griffith officiating. Burial will follow at Scott Cemetery.

Pallbearers include Grant Nesbit, Darren Beckwith, Darin Huff, Michael Huff, Bryan Lambert, and Kelly Morgan.
