Today we must say goodbye...
Dora Francis Nobles Baggett was born on January 11, 1932, to Samuel Earl Nobles and Velma Ruby Gibson Nobles. She died peacefully in her sleep May 21, 2019 at Bedford Care, Hattiesburg, MS.

Francis was called Mama and loved by so many, young and old. She always had a hot pot of coffee brewing and the porch light on ... anytime was good for her if it involved friends, family and conversation! And if you were really lucky with your timed visits, you could expect garlic fried chicken and banana pudding!

Francis grew up in Oloh and graduated from Oak Grove High School, wherein she was a member of the Lady Warrior Basketball team. She loved the sport and played many a game with her children and grandchildren! Also, while attending a basketball game, she met and married the love of her life, John W. Baggett and from this union, five (5) children were born. For many years, she was a homemaker and later retired from Murray Envelope. Retirement allowed her time for her sewing, gardening and cooking.

She was preceded in death by her father, Samuel Earl Nobles and mother, Velma Ruby Gibson Nobles; husband, J.W. Baggett; two half-sisters, Louise Nobles Bounds and Ann Nobles Brown. Also, by her grandson, Michael Christian Baggett and her brother, Johnny Earl Nobles.

She is survived by five (5) children: Bill (Cissy) Baggett; Kaye (Darrell) Tyson; Cindy (Troy) Norton; David (Michelle) Baggett and Bryan (Jennifer) Baggett. Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren: Eran Baggett; Josh Tyson; Russ Tyson; Kaitlin Norton; Riley Baggett; Meagan (Tanner) Baggett West; Isiah Tyson; Maison Baggett; Cole Baggett; Bryanna Tyson; Presley Baggett; Kyle Tyson; Mia Grace Flynt; Kerrigan Norton; Asha Baggett; Maddox Flynt; Abby Tyson; and Aubrey Tyson. She is also survived by two (2) sisters, Mae Lee Nobles Webster and Doresa Nobles Sargent.

Visitation will be Saturday, May 25, 2019, from 12:00 to 2:00pm at Forrest Funeral Home in Hattiesburg, with services immediately following. Burial will be at Midway Cemetery, Oloh, MS.
In closing, the family of Dora Francis Noble Baggett would like to sincerely thank the staff of Bedford Alzheimer's Unit for taking such good care of our precious Mama.

With sympathy to the Baggett Family. A comforting Scripture is at Ecclesiastes 9:5. There it tells us that the dead know nothing at all. So, they are no longer suffering. The Bible also promises a time when death will be no more. Revelation 21:4. And the dead have the hope of a resurrection. Acts 24:15. I hope these Scriptures can be of comfort to the family.
