Douglas Gene Groner was born in 1939 in Syracuse, New York. He joined the United States Marines when he was 17 years old. He began his education at Syracuse University but began working for General Electric where he transferred to Bahamas, California, and finally to the NASA test facility in Picayune, Mississippi, where he met and married the love of his life Rita Adcock Groner. They had two girls – Michelle and Melanie while living in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. After the first rocket landed on the moon the GE contract with NASA ended, so he decided to pursue his degree at Gulf Coast Community College and Mississippi State University in accounting. The family moved to Pearl where he worked for the State Tax Commission until he started his own business. Later he returned to the State to retire as an accountant for the Mississippi Department of Transportation. Doug has been a sports fan all of his life. He has been an avid fan of the Pearl Pirates for over 40 years. Doug served as a timer for the Pearl Track Team and the Pearl Cross Country Team for 25 years as a volunteer. He rarely missed a Pearl Basketball or Pearl Football game. He has been a season ticket holder for the Mississippi Braves for 16 years. His call for “Defense” will be missed at all the games.

Doug was an avid reader and had a book in his hands most of the time. We have many fond memories of him reading to us as kids and encouraging us by purchasing books anytime we had an interest. Doug researched Genealogy and has records for days on not just our family but friends of families. He loved all types of music but his real love was Blues and Jazz. He listened for hours and loved talking to other music lovers. He loved his four Grandchildren and got so much joy spending time with them as babies reading to them and playing games. He loved attending their sporting events and performances.

Serving as pallbearers are Michael Busby, Daniel Hyams, Nate Hyams, Sam Hayms, David Gainey, Hunter Gainey, Brandon Heard, and Brent Wade.

Margaret Kate (Cobb) King

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all." Proverbs 31:28-29 (KJV)

Margaret Kate(Cobb) King, 86, of Ackerman, MS, surrounded by family at her residence, passed away from this world, Monday, November 2, 2020, and into the loving arms of her Heavenly Father.

Margaret was devoted to her family and, most importantly, to her Lord. She lived a life dedicated to serving others….family, friends, and God. She carried many titles to those who loved her. As a wife, daughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend, she was "Margaret". The doting parent to Peggy and Lesia was known as "Mother". To her special sons-in-law she was always "Mrs. King". She was given the title "Grandmother" by her first grandchild, Lewanda and later shared with her husband, Mel. Later she became "MaMaw" to Cynthia, her husband Joey, Katie and husband Charles. When Drake arrived, she became affectionately known as "Grandma" to him. But….her favorite title of all would probably be the one given to her by her 5 GREAT-grandchildren…..Emily, Allie, Jonah, Owen, and Stella Kate. She LOVED hearing the name "Granny" from these extra special little people!

Margaret was a true example of the Proverbs 31 woman. She was a caregiver to many from a very early age in life. She took care of her family and served her Lord faithfully, and her friendship was treasured by all those who were privileged to know her.
Margaret also worked over 30 years for the Irwin B. Schwabe Company, or shirt factory, as most of us knew it.

Margaret is survived by 2 loving daughters, Peggy(David) Oswalt and Lesia(Steve) Hughes, both of Ackerman, MS; 4 grandchildren, Lewanda(Mel) Morse of Oxford, MS, Cynthia(Joey) Hood of Ackerman, MS, Katie(Charles) Corley of Ackerman, MS and Drake Hughes of Starkville, MS; 5 great-grandchildren, Emily and Allie Morse of Oxford, MS, Jonah and Owen Hood of Ackerman, MS, and Stella Kate Corley of Ackerman, MS; 1 brother, Terry(Joyce) Cobb of Starkville, MS; and 1 sister, Nancy Cherry of Westlake, LA.

Margaret is preceded in death by her husband, Allie Gene King, her parents, H.H. and Jewell(Prewitt) Cobb, and 2 brothers, Jimmy and Frank Cobb.

Outside funeral services will be held on Wednesday, November 4, 2020, 2:00 p.m., at Old Lebanon Presbyterian Church with Rev. Jerry Lawson and Rev. John Yelverton officiating.
