Mabel Louise Haney completed her race of faith at the age of 88 and was greeted in heaven by our Lord on Monday, June 11, 2018.

Preceding her in death are her parents, WJ and Mable Varner; her siblings, Jay Varner, Bill Varner, and Bob Varner; her children, Jay, Wayne, and Debbie; and her husband, Nelson.

She leaves behind her son, Nelson Cap Haney, seven grandchildren – David Wood, Clay Haney, Christy McCulla, Kelly Cathey, Heather McKeen, Payton Denney, and Shayne Bryan. She is also survived by 16 great grandchildren.

Louise was born November 19, 1929, in Marvel, Ark. She fell in love with Jesus at the young age of 4 and since that time shared the love of Jesus with everyone she could, wherever she could, and however she could. She fell in love and married her second love, Nelson Plase Haney. They raised a beautiful family and lived a life of adventure. Along the way, Louise ran a Navajo trading post, authored numerous books, and even managed a drive-in movie theater. It was at the drive-in where she became interested in the world of coins. She founded Louisiana Coin Exchange in 1958 and become affectionately and nationally known as the “coin lady.”

When Louise and Nelson “retired” they moved to a farm near Winthrop, Ark. Retirement included founding Church in the Wildwood, where she lovingly served as Pastor for 35 years. All the while, her writings continued and during retirement, she authored and published a thirty-one volume, verse by verse, study guide of the Bible entitled, Love The Lord, which is cherished and studied by people around the world.

Louise was known and loved dearly by many. She was “Nana” to every child she met. Her home, her kitchen, and her heart were always open and she will be deeply missed.

Visitation will be held from 5-8 p.m. Thursday, June 14, 2018, at Wilkerson Funeral Home in De Queen, Ark.
