Margie Hulse Fikes, age 95, of Watson Chapel, Arkansas passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 22, 2020. She was born in White Hall, Arkansas on November 24, 1925 to Benny and Cecil Hulse. She was a devoted wife, mother, mother-in-law, sister, aunt, grandmother, and great grandmother. She was married to J.N. Fikes for 57 years where they built a legacy of faith, service, family, and generosity. Together they owned Fikes Furniture Store in Pine Bluff for 40 years prior to retiring in 1986. Their business was more than just a way of making a living for them, it was a meeting place for many people to come to share a hamburger and a cup of coffee. She prepared 1,000’s of hamburgers on the old stove in the back of their store. There was much laughter, love, and respect for others shared during those times. She was a proud charter member of Watson Chapel Baptist Church where she served in many roles, but two of her most cherished roles were those of rocking babies in the nursery for many years and then later as Outreach Director for her Esther Sunday School class. Even into her 90’s she served as the designated driver for the older ladies of the church . . . in many cases she was older than the ladies she called “old.” During her retirement years she spent much of her time visiting the “shut-ins” who consisted of family, friends, and fellow church members. Anyone who knew her were well aware of her caring and generous heart for others. As her neighbors drove by her house, they were accustomed to seeing her mowing her yard until she was 90 years old. She took pride in the fact that she could take care of herself, as she didn’t want to be a burden on anyone. She was known for her hospitality -- even when she was confined to her nursing home bed, when someone came to visit her, she would say she’d wished she had known they were coming and she would have baked a cake.

Margie was preceded in death by her husband, J.N. Fikes; her parents Benny and Cecil Hulse; and siblings Jessie Hulse, Benny Gene Hulse, Doris Smith, Edna Gunther, and Don Hulse. Survivors include her children, Howard Fikes (Sherry) of Benton and Ralph Fikes (Terry) of San Antonio, Texas; siblings, Vernon Hulse of Fordyce, Billy Joe Hulse of White Hall, Shirley Brooks of Watson Chapel and Bobby Hulse of Norfork; grandchildren, Justin (Christti) of San Antonio, Texas, and Ali Crane (Hoy) of Benton, Arkansas and Katie Fikes of Houston, Texas. Margie had four great grandchildren, Logan Crane, Lucy Crane, Blake Fikes, and Courtney Fikes. And a host of nieces and nephews who she loved dearly and remained in close contact through phone calls and cards.

Funeral will be conducted by Ralph Robinson and Son Funeral Directors in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. Visitation on Monday, December 28, will precede the funeral at 9:30 a.m. with the funeral service scheduled for 10:30 a.m. in Robinson’s Chapel. Funeral service will be officiated by the Honorable Mike Holcomb. All covid-19 guidelines will apply. The service will be livestreamed and the family encourages anyone who feels unsafe to watch the service on the livestream.

Pallbearers/honorary pallbearers are Jerry Wayne Gunther, Joe Hulse, Jim Hulse, Eric Fikes, Woodrow West, Ed Lee, Wayne Rhodes, Cameron McCann, Lee Brooks, and Eddie Black.

It was the fall of 1962, our Dad, suffering from terminal kidney disease, was admitted to the Veterans Hospital in Little Rock. My Mother, with few living relatives, wanted to be with my Dad in his remaining days. It was Mr. and Mrs. Fikes who stepped up and offered to let Don and I stay with them so Mom could be with Dad. Mrs. Fikes treated us like family and saw to it that we had all the attention and care that we needed. She introduced me to chocolate gravy, which to this day I haven’t had better! We also spent time with the Mayhan’s and Swim’s and our thanks and appreciation goes out to them but I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Marge Fikes, an angel when two young boys needed love and guidance! Rest In Peace, sweet lady!
