Doris "Alene" Hutchins Hair, 82, of Stuttgart, Ark., passed away Saturday, December 15, 2012 at Baptist Health Medical Center, Stuttgart, Ark. She departed her life of this world, onto her eternal hereafter journey. We held her, talked to her, and caressed her. She passed peacefully from this life in the arms of those that loved her.
Alene was born June 10, 1930 to Bertie Inez (Owens) and Henry Herman Otto Joerns in Hickory Ridge, Ark. She was a member of Park Avenue Missionary Baptist Church. She was a custom drapery seamstress and worked through Stuttgart Floor Covering & P.K. Buerkle Furniture for many years before retiring. She loved fishing, traveling, decorating, and was tediously working in her yard and flower beds. She was very proud to win the nomination from the Stuttgart Chamber of Commerce for the Yard of the Month.
Alene was preceded in death by her parents; her sister, Mildred Lucille (Joerns) Larque; her brother, Harold William Joerns; and three husbands, Joseph Curtis (BoBo) Hair; James William (Cedarfoot) Harris, and Thomas Wilson (TW) Hutchins, Jr., all of Stuttgart, Ark.
Alene is survived by her only child, Debra Hutchins Duncan of Stuttgart, Ark.; her grandchildren, Natalie Blake Duncan of Victoria, British Columbia Canada and Trenton Whitney (Trent) Duncan of Stuttgart, Ark.; one special great-grandchild, Trenton "Bailey" Duncan of Stuttgart, Ark.; and a special sister-in-law, Juanita (Banasky) Joerns; several nieces; and one nephew. In her later years, she was blessed to have two special caregivers, whom she loved and considered family, Jan Keeth Barnett and Sue Williams.
A graveside service will be held Wednesday, December 19, 2012 at 10 a.m. at Lone Tree Cemetery Pavilion, with Bro. Tony Crye officiating. Burial will follow in the family plot at Lone Tree Cemetery, Stuttgart, Ark.
