Carolyn A. Higginbotham

Bartlett, TN

80, passed away on January 22, 2017. Preceded in death by Charles L. Higginbotham, her husband of 53 years. She leaves her children, Suzanne (David) Dickey of Pea Ridge, AR and Eddie (Kenya) Higginbotham of Bartlett, TN, her sister Beverly Black of Memphis, TN and her grandchildren, Kyle and Heidi Higginbotham of Bartlett, TN.

Mrs. Higginbotham, affectionately known as "Miss Higgy", served 26 years on staff at Bellevue Baptist Church in Cordova, TN, where she was a member since 1973. Positions held at Bellevue included Director of Graded Choirs, Production Costumes and Banners, and Director of the Prayer Ministry. Prior to serving at Bellevue, Mrs. Higginbotham was a professional dress maker for Halpern's Fabrics in Memphis. Mrs. Higginbotham also taught the Philathea Sunday School class for 40 years and the Women of the Word class for 5 years.

Her family was more than those connected by birth or marriage. She also leaves thousands of graded choir children, scores of banner men and women, prayer ministry partners, graded choir staff, costume seamstresses, fellow Bellevue church staff members, faithful Sunday school members, her beloved "Monday Nighters" as well as thousands of other "Special Persons."

Visitation will be held in the Worship Center at Bellevue Baptist Church Saturday, January 28th from 10:00AM to 12:30PM. Followed by the Funeral at 1:00PM. Memorial contributions may be made to the Memphis Union Mission.
