Elizabeth Ann “Mimi” Spencer Haynes, 89, a lifelong resident of Chattanooga went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 10, 2021.
She was born on December 3, 1931 in Chattanooga to the late Lee Roy and Beulah Spencer. She was a 1948 graduate of City High School and married the love of her life, Nick Martin Haynes, on September 25, 1948. Elizabeth was a bookkeeper for Oakwood Baptist Church from 1976-1990 and Mimi was a volunteer at Memorial Hospital Cancer Center from 1996-2011. She loved sewing, flower gardening, volunteering at Memorial Hospital, helping others in any way she could, and mostly her “Sunday Lunches” with all of her family around the table. She was the most compassionate, loving, and giving person. Elizabeth was a selfless servant, who always placed others first.
