Allie Mae Agerton

Allie Mae Nash Agerton, age 91, a resident of Oak Ridge Nursing Home, El Dorado, (formerly of Urbana) went home to Heaven Sunday, October 28, 2012, at Oak Ridge Nursing Home, El Dorado, Arkansas.

Allie was born January 12, 1921, the daughter of Bright Nash and Neely Helms Nash. She is predeceased by her parents; six brothers; her husband of 62 years, James O. Agerton; and a son, Bonnie Roy Bull.

Allie is survived by two sons, Mac Arthur Bull (Marta) of El Dorado, and Robert D. Agerton (Jerri) of Urbana; ten grandchildren; twenty great grandchildren; four great, great grandchildren; and a host of friends.

Allie typified the Proverbs 31 woman in that she was a devoted wife, mother, mother-in-law, and grandmother and a skilled homemaker whose hands were never idle. While rearing her children, Allie worked in the school cafeterias at Lawson and Urbana. She was an accomplished cook – making savory meals out of everything her husband and sons caught, shot or trapped. She could skin a deer, clean a squirrel or scale and filet a fish quicker than most men. She was a skilled seamstress and excelled at quilting making – often designing her own patterns. Her love language was cooking big meals and having lots of folks sit around her table and enjoy the fruits of her labor.

She lived in Urbana most of her adult life until moving to Oak Ridge Nursing Home in December of 2005. The family extends a very special thank you to the staff of Oak Ridge for taking such god care of Allie.

Graveside services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 30, at Urbana Cemetery under the direction of Young’s Funeral Directors with Rev. Sam Whitlow officiating.

Visitation was held from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Monday, October 29, 2012 at Young’s.

Memorials may be made to First Baptist Church of Urbana or to Harmony Baptist Church.

An online guest registry will be available at

I met Ms. Allie about a year ago when my Mother moved to the nursing home.
She was such a nice lady and always had a smile. I enjoyed visiting with her when I was feeding my Mother. I will miss her. I wanted you to know that I was thinking of you in your time of sorrow.

I remember eating at MaMaw James on Sunday afternoons. Boy she would have everything but the kitchen sink on the table. It was always wonderful food and we always had a great time. I have many childhood memories of the special times we had. My love to all. Diana Moore & Family
