Savannah "Bam" Mae Hines
November 6, 1950 – September 23, 2021
Savannah Mae Hines was born November 6, 1950 at her family's home in Beaumont, TX. She was the sixth of nine children from the union of Willie Andrews and Albertha Andrews (Jochin). Her siblings nicknamed her "Bam". Growing up in a large family, there was rarely a dull moment. Everyone had to pitch in and look out for each other to help the household maintain order. Aside from cooking and cleaning, Savannah became especially skilled at baking and sewing. Her mother, Albertha described Savannah as, "a good child'.
She was a proud Charlton Pollard Bulldog, graduating class of 1969. On September 6th of that same year, Savannah married her high school sweetheart, Lester Charles Hines Sr. Their marriage was a happy and loving union and lasted over 40 years. They made their family complete with the births of their children; Lester Charles Hines Jr. "Trey" and Dorothy Bell Hines "Dot". They affectionately called their family unit The Hines-4.
Savannah spent years working in the customer service industry until the mid-90's. However, the job that she took the most pride and joy in was being a wife and mother. She was a woman with a million dollar smile, a generous heart, and she always greeted her loved ones with arms opened wide to bring them in for a big hug. She loved dancing and singing. On Sunday mornings, Savannah's powerful voice filled the walls of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church as a member of the choir. She also did volunteer work cooking and baking for church fundraisers and even cut and sewed garments for the church Liturgical Praise Dance team at no charge.
Due to health issues in her latter years, she moved from Beaumont to Humble, TX with her daughter. Despite those health challenges, she never lost her sense of humor or her joyous laugh.
