Attie Mae Allen Pigg

April 11, 1942 — August 14, 2015

The beautiful and sweet life of Attie Mae Allen came to a close on Friday, August 14, 2015 at Courtyard Gardens in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. For 73 years she lived her life in contentment, peace and love. She dealt with bad days, obstacles, ups and downs with courage knowing that behind every dark cloud lies a silver lining. Attie Mae born to F. C. and Ludie Mae Williams Allen on April 11, 1942 in Vaden, Arkansas. Raised in Vaden, a small yet friendly community made up of mostly “kin folk”; where everybody knew everybody; she grew up in a home filled with an abundance of love, laughter and good times. Coming from a very large family of sisters and brothers she really didn’t need a lot of friends, but she always possessed a warm and friendly spirit. Attie Mae accepted Christ as her Lord at an early age. She grew up to be a fun-loving and nurturing young lady. She was a 1961 graduate of Henry Bell High School in Gurdon, Arkansas. She worked as a housekeeper for many years until her retirement and was a Foster Grandparent with the Arkadelphia Public School Foster Grandparent Program. She believed in getting an education and instilled in her daughter, granddaughter, nieces and nephews the value of hard work. Her home was a place of love and welcome. She married Elder Malvin C. Pigg in 2000. He passed into the Lord’s embrace in 2007. She was a dedicated member of Church of the Living God Pillar and Ground of the Truth in Vaden. She loved attending prayer meeting, bible study and helping with devotion. Those she touched and those who knew her witnessed her untiring love for God. She was a believer in “treating others, as you would have them to treat you”. She believed the Lord had blessed her to work with her hands and that He gifted her with a "green thumb". She loved flowers and could grow anything. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and a great-grandson. Her smile, hearty laugh and warm embrace will be missed, but never forgotten. Because love is greater than death, her memories will live forever in the hearts of her daughter, Sherrill A. Allen Jones (Nathan) of Arkadelphia; her granddaughter, Asha L. Floyd of Texarkana, AR; a great-grandson, Late Treycen Jace Williams; sisters, Erma McElroy, Joyce Heyward and Judy Anderson (Robert) all of Arkadelphia, AR; four brothers, J. W. Walker of California, C. W. Allen of Ft. Smith, AR, Hulon Allen of Arkadelphia, AR, and Elder Roy Allen (Barbara) of Arkadelphia, AR. She also leaves an innumerable number of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and acquaintances. A celebration of her life will be held at 11am on Thursday, August 20, 2015 at Tate Temple COGIC where Superintendent LeRoy Williams-host pastor, Superintendent Robert Davis-Officiant and Bishop Roosevelt Pigg, eulogist. The interment will be in Piney Grove Cemetery. Public visitation will be held on Wednesday, August 19, 2015 from 2-6 pm. The family will receive friends from 5-6pm.
