Mrs. Arletha Cannon, 85, of 109 Detroit Ave., Springfield, died Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2001, at her home. She was born to the late Mingo and Drucilla Henderson in Jacob, Fla. She was converted to the Baptist faith at a young age by joining a Baptist St. Mary Baptist Church, also in Jacob, Fla. After becoming a resident of Panama City, Fla., she transferred her membership to Second Mt. Moriah Baptist Church in Springfield, Fla., where she served as a faithful member until her death. Mrs. Cannon was a member of the choir and worked on the committee as a pastor's aide. The deceased was united in holy matrimony to Herbert Cannon on June 30, 1961, and to this union was a daughter. Sister Cannon was employed by Tyndall Air Force Base until her retirement after 35 years of service. She was a very stern lady, not understood by many. But she will be remembered for her caring, loving kindness toward her family, friends and others. For it was not known by all that she gave a lot of her time toward working in the help of saving and helping other less fortunate. Sister Cannon leaves to cherish her memory, a daughter, Jacqueline Jackson; and four grandsons, Alvin Glenn, Antonio McDonald, Urick McDonald and Robert McDonald. A great-granddaughter, Cyuanna Glenn; a sister, Leola Simmons; and seven brothers, Henry (Betty) Henderson, Robert Lee Henderson, RC. (AIbert) Henderson, King David Henderson, Mingo (Edna Ruth) Henderson, Allen (Classie) Henderson, A.L (Dorothy) Davis; and a special niece, Valorie Mack with a host of other relatives including nieces and nephews. And I would also like to recognize another that has been really close to the family through the good and bad times, Jimmie Selisa Davis. Funeral services for Mrs. Cannon will be held on Saturday, Dec. 8, 2001 at 11 a.m. in the Second Mt. Moriah Baptist Church with the Rev. Henry Harper officiating. Interment will follow in the St. Mary's Cemetery in Jackson County. Public visitation will begin today at 1 p.m. with family hour in the Chapel from 7 to 8 p.m. this evening. The remains will lie in state on hour prior to services at the church.
