Dorothy Marie Haynes was born to Oscar and Rena Haynes on June 26, 1934. The doctor did not record her birth until the next day on June 27, 1934. Her name was later changed to Doris Marie Haynes. Born in Garland Texas, she was always proud to be recognized as a Texan by her lingering accent. The saying goes, “You can take the girl out of Texas but you can’t take Texas out of the girl.” She had three siblings, Francis, Charles, and Andrew, all preceding her in death.
She was a young teenager when Ronald Clyde walked into her life. They met in her home church while he was holding a revival. He knew instantly he had to marry her. She looked up into the green eyes of that tall good-looking talented young man and knew her answer was “Yes.” The two would work together in the ministry singing and preaching for 60 years. Her love of music was a great instrument in the ministry they shared. They celebrated 68 years of marriage.
The legacy she leaves behind is five children: Kathryn, Renn, Patricia, Clyde, and David; eleven grandchildren, Ralene, Jason, Katrina, Eric, Keenan, Kyle, Emily, Lindsay (deceased), Alec, Aiden, Analiese; four great grandchildren, Eric, Scott, Scheyene, and Santiago.
Marie was an avid reader, quilter, canner, and homemaker. Her favorite poet was Helen Steiner Rice. She never met a stranger. She would strike up a conversation with her local grocery clerk or whomever she happened to meet. She was happy to share her love for God with anyone who was hurting or in need of kindness. Her friends knew her as quiet, steady, and grounded in the word of God. Her greatest love was her husband and their shared interest of music and ministry, her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
Marie will be greatly missed by those who knew and loved her.
Praying for the family. Such a sweet soft spirit. So loved your dear Momma. Heaven is getting sweeter.
I’m at loss for words but thankful to the know the one who can bring the right comfort at this time.
My deepest sympathies to all the family.
Sis Joseph was a jewel. She was a fantastic woman of God, wife, mother and mentor. I’m thankful she was a mentor to me. She was also “Woke” before it was in style. She would reduce, reuse and recycle everything. She taught me how to be a good person but even more so a great Christian. I’m thankful to her family for sharing her. Love you all. – Debbie
