Jeannie LaRue Murphy Brinkley
Madison, Mississippi

Jeannie LaRue Murphy Brinkley, 74, departed this life peacefully to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 8, 2021. Visitation will be from 5pm to 7pm on Monday, June 14, 2021 at Sebrell Funeral Home. A graveside service will be held at 11am Tuesday, June 15, 2021 in Natchez Trace Memorial Park.

Jennie was born July 30, 1946, in Grenada Mississippi to George Holmes Murphy and Addie Helen Murphy. She graduated from John Rundle High School in Grenada. She received an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from the University of Southern Mississippi and a master’s degree in Elementary Education from Ole Miss. She was a devoted teacher for 31 years in schools in Charleston, Grenada and Madison.

Jeannie is survived by her loving and devoted husband, Bill; sister, Martha Lynn Bailey (Ford); nephew, Kevin Bailey (Valerie); nieces Meredith Bailey Scott (Brandon) and Mallory Bailey Strode (Raymond); great-nieces, Eliza Bailey, Clara Bailey, and Henley Scott; great-nephew, Baby Scott, who is expected in October; and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives by marriage.

Jeannie was a larger than life personality. She never met a stranger and could bond with anyone. She had a knack for being humorous and loving to all she met. Jeannie was blessed with a gift for teaching. She was totally invested in the lives of her students beyond the classroom and never lost interest in their lives after they left her class.

Jeannie loved life and no one was more special than her nephew, nieces and great-nieces. She loved them like her own. She was always interested in their lives and cheered them on in all of their activities.

Jeannie was a devout Christian from an early age and currently a member of First Baptist Church of Madison.

The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to Annalyssa Haliburton and LaShunda Harmon with Hospice Ministries for their loving care of Jeannie.
