She is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 68 years, Carl Edmond Head, Sr., as well as her parents. Accepting Christ as her Lord and Savior at age 7, Miriam grew up to be a Sunday School teacher at Second Baptist Church and at Eastmont Baptist Church for many years. She worked faithfully with her husband in their construction business for 55 years. Miriam lived her life as a Godly mother, loving wife, and faithful prayer warrior who loved her family with all her heart.

Mrs. Head was one of the sweetest people I knew! I loved having her as a Sunday School teacher and I grew older as a friend! I know she will be terribly missed by so many but especially her family!

To all the Head Family,
Anyone who was blessed to have known Miriam knows what a Christian lady she was and loved the Lord, Carl and all her family. She was so proud of each and everyone of you, We were so blessed to share many wonderful visits, conversations and laughs with Miriam and Carl. Miriam was one in a million and we loved her dearly.
May God be with each of you and give you comfort. May He wrap His arms around you and give you peace and hope.
God Bless, Betty and Bobby Gautney

Please accept my sincere sympathy in the loss of Miriam Head. I did not know her personally but I knew of her at Eastmont Baptist Church. My mother, Lillie Adams, told me she knew her before she got married to my father. Please accept my love, prayers and concern during this time. I also knew Tim Head and his wife, Jennifer. Love, Jane Adams Mobley
