Mildred Christine Haynes, 81

Mildred Christine Haynes, our beloved mother, grandmother, aunt and friend, went to be with Jesus at the age of 81 on Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, at Life Care Center. Her spirit left us to rejoice in the Lord, but there are many treasured memories and the peace of Jesus to comfort those of us she left behind.

Her joyous hobbies included singing in the choir, taking and collecting photos, and gardening in her roses and tulips. She loved her family and her many years of having everyone over for good food and late night Rock games. They will be sorely missed as well as the delicious and beautifully decorated cakes she baked for friends and family.

She was the daughter of the late Ralph J. and Nannie Sue Robertson. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband Adger G. Haynes and a sister Katherine Robertson.

She is survived by her sister, Pantha Jean Robertson of Lake Lure; one son Randall G. Haynes; two daughters Penny Haynes Fore and Jennifer Haynes; two grandchildren Brandi McWhorter Sanders and husband Jamie and Lindsey Fore; and two great-grandchildren Elijah Sanders and Ayla Sanders all of Henderson County; her best friend, Leona Wilson of Lake Lure; as well as a host of very special nieces and nephews across the world.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2013, at French Broad Baptist Church, 182 Grandview Lane, Hendersonville. Reverend Kemuel Pruitt and Pastor Todd Eaton will officiate. A graveside service will follow at 3 p.m. at Bill's Creek Cemetery at 1475 Bill's Creek Road, Lake Lure, with Reverend Terrell Dillingham. The family will receive friends from 10-11 a.m., prior to the service Wednesday at the church.

A guest book and sympathy card is available at www.forestlawnhendersonville.com.

Forest Lawn Funeral Home is assisting the family with the arrangements.
