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.
