The sweet and loving soul Lorene Stuckey was born into time on March 7, 1927 in Gurdon, Arkansas to the union of Henry Harper and Nicholas Rochelle Harper. As a little girl she accepted Christ as her personal savior. Lorene was blessed to be the mother of 4 children and she took her role as mother serious. She made every effort to provide for her children and made sure that they knew of the Lord. She worked at the Clark County Nursing Home for several years. She was always on time and neat. Lorene loved gospel, as well, as classical music. Her favorite pastime was sewing. She would spend hours and sometimes days sewing. She united with the First Memorial Church of God in Christ family where she served in several capacities including: church mother, president of the pastor’s aide committee and the home & foreign mission. She also served as a Sunday school teacher, bible band teacher and with the YPWW. As an intercessor, Mother Stuckey lived a life filled with prayer. She was a strong believer in the power of God to work wonders and perform miracles, which she experienced many times in her life. Even during her time of affliction, she did not waiver in her confidence in God, but stood firm on faith in His Word until the end. As she aged gracefully, she moved to Twin Rivers Health and Rehabilitation where she quickly stole the hearts of the administration and staff. She made friends easily and found peace with her new home. She was always beautifully dressed and participated in the various activities. Time and space will not allow for a full accounting of the life of this precious Saint of God. She enjoyed cooking soul food, extended telephone conversations, and clean fun. She was a woman of great beauty, impeccable style, elegance and grace whose spirit brought so much joy in the lives of all she touched. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Herman Stuckey, a daughter, Deborah Johnson and her siblings, Florida Knotts, Vera Carter, Dorothy Jean Foreman and Claude “Sonny Man” Harper. Though she is no longer with us in body, and her irreplaceable presence will be deeply missed, her legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of all those who were impacted by the beautiful life she lived. She leaves to relish her memories: 3 children, Elaine (James) Dunlap of South Bend, IN, Rodney Stuckey of Gurdon, AR and Remelle (George) Scott of Arkadelphia, AR; son-in-law, George Johnson of Lake Charles, LA; 8 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. She also leaves an abundance of nieces, nephews, and other relatives. She passed quietly into the Lord’s embrace on Wednesday, July 13, 2016. Home going services will be at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at First Memorial COGIC with Elder Chester Mitchell, Sr., eulogist. Interment will be in Rose Hedge Cemetery.
