Marlie Grace Hemphill, age 16 months, of North Little Rock, went to be with our Lord on Saturday, January 5, 2013. She was born on August 28, 2011 to Arline and Zak Hemphill. Marlie spent much of her life at Arkansas Children's Hospital as a result of various complications from heterotaxy syndrome. Marlie knew more love in her brief journey than most of us will ever know.
She is survived by her parents; a brother, Landen Michael, grandparents, Janice and Michael Cory of North Little Rock, great-grandmother Vivian Cory of Pensacola, Fla., aunt, Amber Gonzales of North Little Rock, grandparents, Dinda and Michael Hemphill of Shreveport, La., and great-grandmother, Mae Tenney of North Little Rock.
A memorial service for Marlie Grace will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, January 10, 2013 at the Chapel at Fellowship Bible Church, 1401 Kirk Rd, Little Rock, Ark. 72223. All are invited to visit with the family afterwards in The Station at the Church. Arrangements made by Roller-Owens Funeral Home, (501-791-7400).
