Mimsye passed away peacefully on Sunday, December 23rd, 2018 at age 87. She leaves behind 3 daughters, Angela Haffarnan (Joe), Fran Waites (Al), and Lynne Beauchamp (David), 10 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, a brother, Jerry Abernathy (Dru) and numerous nieces and nephews who loved her very much. Mimsye was one of the kindest and most knowledgeable people you would ever meet. She never had a mean word to say about anyone, and was always quick to point out that you don’t always know the story behind another person, so it is never fair to judge another. She taught her girls that they could be or do anything they wanted in life, but she also made sure to impart to them that humility was one of the best assets to strive for in life. She was always coming up with unique ideas and ways to do things - inventing the Smuckers Peanut Butter and Jelly jars well before Smuckers did. She could throw a mean softball, round up cows if needed, and she found multiple uses for everyday items. She could do electrical and plumbing repairs, and she also made the best fried chicken, best chocolate chip cookies and most incredible sweet tea around. Volunteering for the Red Cross and as a chaperone on band trips kept her busy when she was younger and watching after the grandchildren entertained her when she was older. The grandchildren were treated to Rice Krispie treats for breakfast (they were cereal she said), and she indulged them by playing dress up or any other games they wanted. She enjoyed traveling to visit her daughters when they lived in Scotland, California, Hawaii, and elsewhere, and was always there to lend a helping hand after each grandchild’s birth. The world was a better place for all when she was around, and heaven gained one of the best angels in her passing. She will celebrate her arrival in Heaven with her husband who preceded her, Hugh Owen, and parents, Hassell and Bebe Abernathy. We will continue to celebrate her life and legacy. The family will accept flowers or memorials may be made to your favorite charity. Memorial messages may be sent to the family at www.langleyfuneralhome.com. Langley Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
