Mrs. Bobbie Jean Williams Haney, 89, formerly of Atkins passed away October 29, 2020 at her home in Cabot, Arkansas. She was born September 2, 1931 at Hattieville, Arkansas and was the daughter of the late Reverend Carl and Arbella Massingill Williams.

Bobbie was a graduate of the former Arkansas State Teachers College (now UCA) in Conway. Upon graduation, she was hired as a home economics teacher at Atkins. During this time, she met the love of her life, Emmett and they were married for 51 years. After marrying, they moved to Alabama where she continued teaching home economics at Carroll High School in Ozark until the birth of Carla. They later moved to Clinton, Mississippi where Carroll was born. Upon moving back to Arkansas, she returned to teaching once her children were in school. She taught in various grades, mainly in sixth and second grade. She loved her family, friends, teaching, her students, singing and most of all her Savior Jesus Christ.

She is preceded in death by her parents and husband and survived by two daughters and sons-in-law Carla and Stephen Ring of Cabot, Carroll and Tim Haney of Cabot; 5 grandchildren, Jacob Ring of Cabot, Daniel and wife Lauren Ring of Dickson, TN, Sarah and husband Tanner Nichols of Maumelle, Elizabeth Ring of Cabot, and Hannah Lee of Powhatan, VA, and 1 great-grandson David Ring of Dickson, TN.

Bobbie Haney was a good friend to countless people, good teacher for many many years. She was loved and also
appreciated for her efforts. She was always willing to help anyone in need. She was lucky to have a wonderful husband
and two precious daughters. Now, she will be in her heavenly home and for all who knew her here, she will long be remembered. I taught next door to Bobbie at Atkins Elementary School, and I will remember fondly.
I hope that her loved ones can get comfort from the wonderful memories of her.

She was one of the great ones. You don't realize that at the time. I didn't because I stayed in trouble all the time for talking. She truly cared about her students and made a lasting impression on all of the lives she touched. Our prayers go out to the family.

Mrs. Haney was a package deal - a dedicated, passionate teacher who wanted the world for her students, made sure that they knew it, and gave them the tools they needed to succeed. She raised amazing daughters in Carla and Carroll. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
