Marjorie Hensley

Marjorie Hensley, 96, passed away on Thursday, February 7, 2019, at Winston Medical Center in Louisville, Mississippi. Funeral services will be Saturday, February 9 at 2 p.m. in the Nowell Massey Funeral Home Chapel with Rev. Tim Horton officiating. Visitation will be the day of the service from 1 p.m. until service time at Nowell Massey Funeral Home in Louisville. Interment will follow in Memorial Park Cemetery.

Marjorie was born September 6, 1922, to C. J. and Annie Schoolar Triplett, the youngest of eight children. She has been a member of First Baptist Church of Louisville for approximately 50 years. For more than 40 years, she worked as a Registered Nurse at Winston County Community Hospital and one comment that was often heard when talking to her was “You delivered my baby”. During her tenure at the hospital, she served as Director of Nurses where she provided an excellent work ethic for others to follow. She was an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves and Mississippi State University football.

Marjorie is survived by her daughter, Carol Hensley of Columbus, Mississippi; and her son Johnny Hensley of Louisville. One of her greatest joys was being “Grandma” to her grandsons Wesley and Carl Hensley. She was preceded in death by her husband, Irvin C. Hensley, Jr.; her parents; three brothers C. J. Triplett, J. Q. Triplett, and Havard Triplett; and four sisters Eva Dean Moore, Katie Moore, Minnie Westbrook, and Jodie Willis.

Serving as pallbearers are Carl Hensley, Wesley Hensley, Drue Moore, Bobby Robinson, Jackie Triplett, and Truman Triplett.
