Mrs. Betty Jean (Bagwell) Haynes, age 84 of Winnfield, crossed through the gates of heaven Tuesday, October 6, 2020. Mrs. Betty was proud to be a mother and homemaker. She enjoyed gardening and took great pride in her yard and beautiful flowers. She also enjoyed league bowling as a social activity.

Mrs. Betty and her husband, Wilson, the love of her life, were married in 1955 and lived in Shreveport for many years while raising their two daughters. She obtained her license in cosmetology in 1978 and they were finally able to move to Bienville Parish in 1979, fulfilling their longtime wish to return to their “roots”. She opened her own beauty salon in Saline, where she loved working and socializing with her patrons. Mrs. Betty and Wilson were members of Carolina Baptist Church. After Wilson was called to his heavenly home in 1995, she relocated to Saline Lake, Winnfield, LA to be near her brother, Ray. She attended Calvin Baptist Church until she was no longer able. She spent her final years at Autumn Leaves Nursing Facility in Winnfield.
