Grace Earl Thomas Mugg Haltom

When you closed your eyes and soared to the Heavens, I could hear the faint
flutter of your wings as you left. ~ Unknown Author

Grace Earl Thomas Mugg Haltom, beloved daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, and
sister was born in rural Madison County, Florida to Artie Drew Thomas and Annie
May Phillips on November 24, 1934.

She is survived by her sister Edie, three of
her five children, Juanita, Phillip and Wanda. Phyllis and John passed in
childhood. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Jamia, Gaia, Michael and
Tisha, as well as her great grandchildren, Hannah, Emerson, Matthew, Andrew, and
Margarita, Dominic, and Addison.

Grace worked for the switchboard system in the early 1960's in Cloverdale, IN
and retired from IU Methodist doing the same some 40 years later.
She sang beautifully and was often asked to join in song with local musicians,
including Jimmy McDaniels. She loved laughing, dancing, canning, collecting and
always helped others, friends and strangers alike.
Grace was feisty, stubborn and a survivor who proudly marched through the
hardest of times. One of her proudest moments was earning her high school
diploma in her later years.
No one will forget her smile ~ she will always be missed ~

"But we remember now in love, Your life from start to end, And we're just glad
we knew you, As Mother, and as Friend." ~ Unknown Author
Weep Not For Me - By an Unknown Author
Weep not for me though I have gone
Into that gentle night
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years
There is no pain, I suffer not
The fear is now all gone
Put now these things out of your thoughts
In your memory I live on
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife
Please do not dwell upon my death
But celebrate my life
