Barbara June Miller Hendrix

March 26, 2021

Barbara June Miller Hendrix, 88, was born in Molino, Florida and lived there her entire life. Born to William Roy and Annie Mae Miller, she had one brother, Donald, all preceding her in death. She attended Molino Junior High School and graduated from J.M. Tate High School in 1950. Barbara married her childhood sweetheart, Charles Hendrix, in 1951. They were married 55 years when he passed away in 2006.

A wife and a homemaker, she and Charles raised 3 children- Chuck, Rusty, and Cheryl. During the time that Charles was drafted, Barbara laughed and cringed at the same time about the “2 days” that she delivered the mail for him. She referred to them as the two scariest days of her life, driving the slippery dirt roads of Molino. Little League baseball games, piano lessons, learning about football while watching the band, yet there was always a meal on the table at “dinner” and “supper” made from recipes of “a little of this” and “a little of that.”!

Barbara was a lifetime member of Highland Baptist Church. She was baptized in Wilders Creek in 1949 and always said, if you were not saved when you went in the creek, you were when you came out! She attended and led the Women’s Missionary Union (WMU), was a member of the Molino Homemakers Club where she led the group in their monthly devotion, and she was a charter member of the Molino Mid County Historical Society. She gained so many friends from these groups, friends that would always check in with her and that loved her dearly.

We that will forever cherish the life we shared with her: Chuck and his wife Peggy; Rusty and his wife Susan; Cheryl and her husband Archie. The light of her eyes, her seven granddaughters, who knew her as “MeMaw” or “MawMaw” depending on which grandchild you were, and the added grandsons: Leslee and her husband Jordan Williams; Meridith and her husband Marshall Caum, Kayla and her husband Keith Meador, Cari Hendrix, Lydia and her husband Justin Purvis, Avery Hendrix, Haylee and her husband Benjamin Linam. Added are her sunshines, her great-grandchildren: Charlee Meador, Landree Williams, Jett Williams, Caroline Caum, and Gunner Meador. Also very dear to her were her many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Serving as pallbearers are her grandsons and Henry Heibert, Brad Johnson and Robert Kennedy. Honorary pallbearers are Charles Barton, Charles Purvis, Jack Gibson, the members of the Molino Homemakers and the Molino Mid County Historical Society.

Services will be on Monday, March 29 th , 2021 at Highland Baptist Church with Bro. Brian Calhoun officiating. Visitation will begin at 1:00pm with the funeral to follow at 3:00pm.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Highland Baptist Church Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, that supports North American Missionaries, or the Cemetery Fund.
