Carmen Haynes

December 24, 1934April 20, 2012

Carmen Jean Haynes was born on December 24, 1934, in Newport, Arkansas, to Preston and Golda Adcox. Carmen attended school to become a nurse where she was able to achieve her one true goal in life, to care for people. Carmen was a caregiver at heart. Whether it was her family or her friends or her children’s friends, they all knew where to go if they needed help. Through nursing Carmen was able to take care of so many people and they all loved her for it. Carmen enjoyed reading and playing the piano but most of all she loved watching the news. She loved hearing about the daily stories and happenings in the world. Carmen is survived by her husband of 58 years, Ernie Haynes, as well as her four children: Cheryl Haynes, Doug Haynes, Phil Haynes and Little John, her dachshund. Carmen is also survived by her sister Kathryn and her husband Chet Robinson and her brother Preston and his wife Janet Adcox, as well as a host of other family and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Honey Grove Cowboy Church, 3050 FM 100 North, Honey Grove, Texas, 75446.

Although having never met Carmen, in some ways I know her through knowing and loving Mikel. Only having met Doug once, I know thru Mikel how much she is loved. Mikel's heart, as big as all outdoors, along with his caring, kind and compassionate ways must mirror Doug; No doubt Doug is the man he is today in part thru the example of his mom, and family. It is a privilege to join family and friends to honor Carmen tomorrow. God bless Carmen & those grieving her passing. Terri & Rich Dalke

We all have to remeimber all the fun, funny and crazy times we've had over the last 40 years. Mrs. Haynes was like another mom to me and will always remember her patchin me up and fussin at me just like one of her own. I will miss visitin with her when I was in Dallas. I know she feels no pain and is whole again. I luv u all very much and will keep u in my prayers.

Uncle Ernie, Doug, Cheryl and Phil
Marilyn,Samantha & I will always remember your family support offered to us. Aunt Carmen & Uncle Ernie really guided us on the first reunion we all attended in 2004, including the warnings of dorm life snoring in the early morning! Also, we cherish our recent visit to see Carmen and looking at photos of "our family" at your Home in Texas on our USA trip. We will remember her courageous smile! We're sure she will continue to comfort and be comforted now. RIP Hugs & prayers to the entire family, we're here for you.
