Marjorie Elizabeth (Allen) Baucum Obituary
Marjorie Elizabeth Allen Baucum, age 89, went to see Jesus on Friday, March 9, 2018. She died in her sleep on the property where she was born in Forrest City.
Her parents were Walker and Burlie Mae Harris Allen.
When she was 13 she sold EXTRA!'s about Pearl Harbor with her father, a Commercial Appeal District Manager. She grew up at Calvary Baptist, Memphis, when all World War II veterans were heroes, and she married hers after meeting her husband, Ted, at Southwestern\Rhodes.
She taught Kindergarten at St. John's Methodist, and in 1984 joined First Evangelical Church.
Ted went to Jesus in March 2008. She moved to Arkansas in 2010.
Her two sons survive her, Bob Baucum, a substitute teacher, of Forrest City and Bill Baucum, veterinarian, of Portland, Ore. Also, two first cousins and their (grand)children thrive on earth, Rush (Victoria) Harris and Harriette Harris Jordan (Tom) Adams, as do other cousins, including Luther Lieblong and the Dooleys and the Prewetts, Susan Berry and Jenny Dearman, etc. Ann Harris and her brother Jimmy Steve Harris saw Jesus first, but most of his family thrives here.

After a 1998 quadruple bypass, she actually changed from her way of eating. She wanted all to embrace: "Although in the past 'I did it my way,' God demonstrated His own devoted love for me, by sending God the Son, JESUS, to die in my place, So I'd submit to God to do it His Way, in all ways!"
