Hattie (Jeanette) Linney Lackey, 68, of McClain Rd., Hiddenite, entered into the rest of God from this life on Saturday, November 18, 2017.

She was a 1968 graduate of Stony Point High School, a graduate of Catawba Valley Community College, and a retiree of Mitchell Gold.
Hattie was a woman of deep faith, and a devoted and lifelong member of Third Creek Baptist Church, in Stony Point. She was a dutiful studier of God’s Word, and believed in the power of prayer.
