Obituary

Minnie L. Branscum

Minnie Leona Branscum of Calico Rock died Saturday, December 13, 1992, in White River Health Care at the age of 92. She was born on August 17, 1900, the daughter of the late Jesse Bagwell and Mary Waley in Culp.

Minnie was married to Andy Branscum in 1947 at Culp. She spent her life as a homemaker and mother. She was of the Pentecostal faith.

Minnie is survived by: five sons, Ewell Galloway of Blue Hill, Neb.; Lenvil Galloway and Floyd Fletcher, both of Winters, Calif., Jesse Fletcher of Wenatchee, Wash., and Ray Fletcher of Calico Rock; one sister, Mattie Neldon of Winters, Calif.; one brother, Haywood Bagwell of San Antonio, Texas; numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, five brothers and four sisters.

Services were held Thursday, December 17, 1992 at 10 a.m. in the Howard Chapel in Calico Rock with Rev. Ronnie McAllister officiating.

Pallbearers were: Leffel Branscum, Harvey D. Branscum, Lewie Branscum, Arvey C. Branscum, Jimmie Ray Branscum and Jerry Branscum.

Burial was in the Heiskill Cemetery at Norfork under the direction of the Howard Funeral Home in Calico Rock.

[Note: When the family placed a gravestone in the cemetery for Minnie Leona Bagwell Galloway Fletcher Branscum they chose to label the gravestone as Minnie L. Bagwell. She had not gone by her maiden name since her first marriage, and she had gone by Branscum for around the last 45 years of her life. The grave marker does list her first two husbands and the sons from those marriages, but it does not include her last marriage to marriage to Andrew Jackson "Andy" Branscum. She is buried beside her second husband Webster Fletcher.

A Second Note: The obituary indicated that the burial was in the Heiskill Cemetery at Norfork. The Heiskill Cemetery is between the Buford and the Buffalo City Communities.]
