Marie Hatten, age 85, of Mount Gilead, passed away Sunday morning, December 18, 2016, at Woodside Village Care Center.

On January 25, 1931, Marie was born in Catlettsburg, KY, the daughter of the late Robert L. and Ella (Caulwell) White.

Marie worked in several different factories throughout her life, with the longest tenure at Arundale.  She also spent a lot of time making concrete yard ornaments such as birdbaths and animals.

Marie had a soft spot in her heart for animals, especially her three dogs: Gizmo, Quincy and Baby.  She loved birds, having 200 in her home at one time, along with many outdoor bird feeders.

Marie made clothes for her family and could sew anything.  She collected all types of dolls and was one hell of a cook.

She will be remembered as an amazing woman who loved God and her family with all of her heart.

Marie is survived by two sons: Pint and Bill (Patti) Sexton; two daughters: Donna and Dorothy Sexton; a daughter-in-law, Patty Sexton; and numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by three sons: Ray, Curt and Benny Sexton; her second husband, David Hatten; and all of her brothers and sisters.

  • I miss you, I keep picturing you before it all happened, when we would go out on the town together. I just miss seeing out and about. I think you’d want me to remember you that way anyway. I love you so much, you’re always in my heart.
