Mamie Marie Dellbridge
Mamie Marie Delbridge, 90, of Jonesboro passed away at the Flo & Phil Jones Hospice House with her family by her side.
Mamie was born on September 5, 1925, in Leachville to the late Roland B. and Lela Bell Creason Williams. She lived most of her life in the Popular Corner area between Leachville and Manila. She and her late husband Charles Russell Delbridge farmed in the Popular Corner area until his passing. In 1994 she moved to Jonesboro to be near her family, and she became a member of the Southwest Church of Christ. She was a sweet and loving mother and grandmother, and her work ethics and her love for her family will be missed but never forgotten.
