Obituary for Ara Jeanette Lynch Waddell

Ara Lynch Waddell, 90, of Heidelberg, MS passed away peacefully Friday, Feb.2, 2018 in Pascagoula, MS. She was born March 10, 1927 in Armuchee, GA to the late Paul and Dora Lynch. In addition to her parents she was proceeded in death by her beloved husband of 57 years, Melmouth Frank Waddell; brothers Emory Lee Lynch, Joel Quinton Lynch, William Jackson Lynch, Claude Arthur Lynch, Loyd Franklin Lynch; and sisters, Beatrice Lynch, Lucille Lynch Jolly, Mary Ruth Lynch.

A devoted wife, mother, and grandmother affectionately known to all as “Granny”, she was a faithful member of Heidelberg Baptist Church. Her greatest joys in life were serving the Lord, spending time with her family, and opening her home to share her southern cooking with all who were blessed to sit at her table. Ara worked as a secretary for many years at the family owned business, Heidelberg Lumber Company, before retiring to assist her son at Jerry's Tires where she worked until 2012. A generous lady that encompassed a sweet spirit like no other, she will always be remembered for her kindness and compassion.

Ara is survived by her three children; Peggy Breazeale of Pascagoula, MS, Pat Cotten of Pascagoula, MS and Jerry (Suzanne) Waddell of Hattiesburg, MS; grandchildren Brittany (Tim) Chudzik of Long Beach, MS, Kyle (Lisa) Breazeale of Brookhaven, MS, and Whitney (Adam) Bounds of Hattiesburg, MS; and 9 great grandchildren and a host of nieces and nephews.

The visitation will be held on Monday, February 5, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. at Heidelberg Baptist Church in Heidelberg, MS. The funeral service will follow at the church beginning at 11:00 a.m. with Brother Bill Boulton officiating. Interment will follow at Heidelberg Cemetery.

The family would like to thank Larraine Hester and We Care Hospice for their comforting love and support during Granny's final days.

In lieu of flowers the family request donations be made to Heidelberg Baptist Church Memorial Fund.
