“I can endure all these things through the power of the one who gives me strength.” – Philippians 4:13
Sister Ollie Hines was born on October 24, 1932, to the late Georgia Kazee and the late Oliver Edwards, Sr., in Strong,
Sister Hines graduated from Monroe Colored High School, now known as Carroll High School. She was honored with the title of Miss Monroe Colored High School.
Sister Hines accepted Christ and was baptized at an early age. She later joined Riverside Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Reverend H.Y. Bell. She continued her journey under the leadership of Reverend C.R. Jackson where she was a faithful member and servant. She was affectionately known as Mother Hines.
Sister Hines was a very hard-working woman. She worked all her life. Her greatest effort was the joy and pleasure of raising her seven children. She also found pleasure helping to raise the children of her employers as well. She was an avid reader. She enjoyed reading mystery novels and frequently reserved books from the library. She also enjoyed working in her garden and cooking meals from scratch that everyone enjoyed and loved.
Sister Hines transitioned from this earthly life to eternal life peacefully on February 22, 2023. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Sandra Gail Hines, and her son, Ronald Hines. She leaves her loving family to cherish her memories: her sister, Trudell Holden; brother, Perry L. Edwards (Neda) of Winnfield, Louisiana; two daughters, Christine Hines Davis (James) and Carol Hines, both of Monroe, Louisiana; three sons, Bruce Hines and Joseph Hines, both of Monroe, Louisiana, and Michael Hines (Teresa) of Kentucky; fifteen grandchildren; and a host of great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, extended family, friends, and her Riverside church family.
