May 20, 2016


Virgil “Virgie” Haney, 90, was called home to the Lord on May 20, 2016, in Midlothian.

Mrs. Haney was born May 6, 1926, in Joshua, Texas to Ceburn and Nellie Moore. Virgie was the youngest of nine children. She spent her youth picking cotton, which she loved. She married Arvel Haney on April 10, 1943, in Alvarado, Texas. They moved to Waxahachie shortly thereafter.

Mrs. Haney had an in-home daycare for more than 45 years in Waxahachie. She also worked at several church nurseries including Evangel Temple, Ferris Avenue Baptist Church and Farley Street Baptist Church. She spent her life taking care of children and other people; giving all she had and in many cases more than she had. Even through her last months, she would help other residents at Covenant Place Assisted Living, where she lived for her last two years.

Virgie was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Arvel Haney, son Donnie Haney, and her siblings. She is survived by her daughter Judy Robertson-Reese of Italy, Gary Haney of Milford, grandchildren John Robertson, Ashley Little, Lana Fincher, and Dottie Brashear, eight great grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.

Visitation for family and friends will be 4 - 6 p.m. Sunday, May 22, 2016 at the Boze-Mitchell-McKibbin Funeral Home in Waxahachie.

Funeral Service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Monday, May 23, 2016 at the Boze-Mitchell-McKibbin Chapel in Waxahachie with Pastor Richard Smith officiating. Interment will follow at the Red Oak Cemetery.
