Essie Pearl Miller Bryant, age 92, of Conway, walked into the arms of Jesus on, Friday, February 10, 2017.
Essie was born in Gainesville, Florida on September 17, 1924. She was preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and May Olio Miller, brother, Wilbert Lee Miller and son, Jerry Don Forrester. She is survived by her daughter, Virginia Henley, and sons, Dewayne Forrester and Danny Forrester. She has seven grandchildren, fifteen great grandchildren, and three great-great grandchildren.
She retired from Timex after more than 30 years of service and spent her retirement enjoying her life on Lake Conway. She loved cooking for her family and friends and the time spent with them. The minute you walked in her door the pots and pans would come out. You never left her house hungry.
Graveside services will be held at Zion Hill Cemetery in Jerusalem, Arkansas on February 15, 2017 at 11:00 am.
Services entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service, 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas, 72076. 501-982-3400.
We remember the great love Essie had for others. She was a life time friend and we have many happy memories we shared. Jenny, Dewayne, Danny and family we keep you in our thoughts and prayers.
I hate to hear about Ms. Essie. I worked at Harps in Mayflower. I loved it when Ms. Essie would shop. She was always a pleasure. My heart is saddened. I visit her home once.
