The Life of Ola Mae Hightower

Ola Mae Hightower

Ola Mae Hightower 96, went home to be with the Lord on January 10, 2014.

She was born in Plainfield, Georgia to the late Henry Luckey and Estella (Luckey) Davis, and had one brother who passed during infancy.

Ola accepted Christ at an early age and joined Gideon Gift Baptist Church, and served as secretary for many years.

She leaves a rich legacy as a good and faithful Christian mother, grandmother, and a concerned neighbor. She was fondly called, Mama, Mother Hightower, or Big Mama by many of her adopted children. Like the portrait of the virtuous woman (Proverbs 31) she spoke with much wisdom and faithful instruction.

Ola was preceded in death by her husband, J.C.; parents; infant daughter, Asline; son, J.W. Hightower; one brother; and sons-in-law, Bishop Charles Simpson and Deacon Asberry Walker. Ola leaves to cherish her memory, daughters, Eloise Simpson, Ida Walker, Elizabeth Hightower, Min. Jessalynn Cannon; daughter-in-law, Eloise Hightower; brother-in-law, Burney Fluellen of Eastman, Georgia; 15 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, eight great-great grandchildren, one great-great-great grandchild; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Homegoing Celebration will be held on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, where family will receive friends from 11 a.m. until service starting at 12 p.m., with Pastor Kevin Rushing officiating and Rev. Dr. Luther C. Cooper eulogizing. Interment at Mt. Peace Cemetery. Procession will form and condolences may be sent to 1173 Santee Ave., Akron, Ohio 44306.
