Sheila Marie 'Wiggins' Hensley

With a heavy heart and bittersweet gratitude, the Moss, Wiggins, and Hensley families announce that Sheila Marie "Wiggins" Hensley, 71, passed peacefully away at her home on the morning of March 17th, 2023, with Little Man by her side.

Sheila Marie was born on May 30th, 1952, on Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, to Hilary J. Wiggins of Bryson City, NC and the late Ann Marie "Meyers" Wiggins of San Antonio, TX. She grew up on Kinross Air Force base with her older sister Sandy Lancaster, and younger brothers, Chuck and Rudy Wiggins.

She attended Rudyard High School, Class of 1970, then processed to attend Modesto Junior College 1982. The family later transferred to North Carolina Air Force base where she met her first husband, James Edward Helms, and had a daughter, Amber Lynn Helms-Moss.

She lived her life the way she wanted, never let fear or other's opinions stop her from doing things such as building cars, where she even raced a few to driving big rigs overnight. She started to settle down when she met the love her life JD Hensley. They were married on October 21, 1995, and shared a home of seventeen years in Lincoln, Ark., where they enjoyed fishing, camping and traveling to be with family.

She worked at Wal-Mart until she retired in 2020. She filled her days with morning coffee and friends at waffle house, her evenings with cookies & chats with JD and a little Friday night bingo. She would spend her weekends yelling and cheering on her favorite teams, the Atlanta Braves, the awesome Arkansas Razorbacks and those mediocre Cowboys.

Sheila wanted to celebrate beating cancer once again by living her life the way she had always lived her life. The one constant with Sheila is she loved and was very loved by her family.

The family will receive friends 6-7 p.m., Thursday, March 23, 2023, at the Luginbuel Funeral Home.

Funeral service will be held 2 p.m., Friday, March 24th, 2023, at Luginbuel Chapel in Prairie Grove, Arkansas. Burial will be in the Cox Cemetery in Cane Hill, Arkansas. There will be no graveside service held.

George William 'Bill' Moore, Jr.

George William "Bill" Moore, Jr., age 83, a resident of Farmington, Arkansas, passed away Thursday, March 17, 2023, at Willard Walker Hospice Home in Fayetteville, Arkansas. He was born June 21, 1939, Fayetteville, Arkansas, the son of George William and Neda (Heckathorn) Moore.

Dad was a member of Main Street Baptist, in Farmington and loved his church and all the people. He was a veteran of the U.S. Army and was so proud of this country. He loved the city and community and was the first to say, where can I help. Dad loved the glass shop he owned for more years, more than we can count, and stayed active making stained glass. He gave angels and stained-glass crosses to people across the country and some even out of the country. Dad had a knack for keeping everything "because you might need it someday." He loved his family, especially his grandkids. They all had a special place in his heart. He loved his kids too. We are so very lucky to have such a kind, gentle man, who was the perfect example of how to be a dad. But the one person he loved more than anyone or anything, was mom, and now they are once again joined in their heavenly home, celebrating with Jesus and those family and friends who have left us.

He is preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Berthalene, two sisters, Cathy (Moore) Denham and Ann (Moore) Hart, four brothers-in-law, LeRoy Jones, Ray Dean Jones, J.C.
