Henrilois Haynie passed away peacefully at her home from natural causes surrounded by her sons, David and Clyde, and daughter-in-law, Donna, two weeks before her 101st birthday on July 15, 2018.
Mrs. Haynie was born in Redland, TX on July 29, 1917. She was the second child of parents L.C. Wall, Sr., and Lola Neyland Wall. Her siblings were Valda Hardee, Margie Ellison, Wyman Wall, and L.C. Wall, Jr.
As a child, she attended Redland school and later graduated from Concord High School in Leon County, Texas. She earned her Bachelor’s degree from Stephen F. Austin University and then her Master’s of Education Degree at the University of Houston.
She married the love of her life, Norris Haynie, on October 6, 1944 at First Methodist Chapel in Houston, TX. They were married for 61 years. Mr. Haynie passed away on October 14, 2005.
Mrs. Haynie was a lifelong educator. She taught in Houston ISD for 31 years before moving back to Redland for retirement. However, she decided to teach eight more years for Leon ISD.
Mr. and Mrs. Haynie had two boys, David Dwight Haynie, born on September 1, 1946, and Clyde Milton Haynie, born on December 28, 1948.
Mr. and Mrs. Haynie attended Park Place Baptist Church in Houston. The most important thing to Mrs. Haynie was her relationship with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and telling others about Him. It brought her much joy when her friends and family came to follow Christ. One of the happiest moments in her life was when her boys, David and Clyde, gave their life to the Lord on the same day at ages 14 and 12.
When moving back to Redland, Mrs. Haynie enjoyed serving as a hostess for baby and wedding showers and funerals for her church, First Baptist of Centerville.
