October 22, 1920 - August 17, 2016
Willie Lee Haney was born October 22, 1920 in Paulette, Mississippi to Jim and Rachel Lockett. She was the baby in the family and was often referred to as “Doll.” She had four brothers and two sisters; all of whom preceded her in death. Willie was united in Holy Matrimony to George Albert Haney, who preceded her in death. To this union thirteen children were born; three of whom (Edward, Earl, Raymond) preceded her in death. Many years ago, Willie accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior under the leadership of Reverend Conner, and joined Springhill Missionary Baptist (M.B.) Church in Carrollton, Alabama. Willie and her family later relocated to St. Louis, Missouri and she joined West End Mount Carmel (W.E.M.C.) M.B. Church. She served under the leaderships of Reverends Spicer and Turner, and Bishop White. She loved her church and dutifully served on the Mother’s Board until her health failed. Family, friends, and neighbors often contacted her for support and prayer; and she put her soul and heart into praying for them. Over the years, she actively discussed the power and love of God with her family, friends, and neighbors. Mother Haney leaves to mourn her passing: five sons ~ George L. (Delores), Willie G. (Erodita), Henry (Lillie), John (Van) and Rickey; five daughters ~ Georgia Thornton-Pickens, Jean Mason (Ronald), Wilda, Linda, and Janice; several grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren; a God Daughter, Penny Clayton, and a host of relatives and friends.
