July 6, 1947 — March 13, 2021

Eugenia Carol “Jeanie” Hungate passed away on Saturday morning, March 13, 2021, at her home in Holly Springs, Mississippi. She was born on July 6, 1947, in Madison County, Indiana, to the late Robert and Mary Ellen Altherr. Jeanie worked for Thyssenkrupp Elevators in Horn Lake for twenty eight years. She was a devoted Catholic and a member of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Olive Branch, Mississippi.

Jeanie was preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Kenneth Ray Hungate, and a beloved daughter, Christina Beth Hungate.

Jeanie is survived by a daughter, Lauri Ann Hungate of Byhalia, Mississippi, and a son, Robert W Hungate (Summer), also of Byhalia. She is also survived by her grandchildren, William Hungate of Byhalia, Samuel Smothers of Southaven, Emma Smothers and Sarah Smothers of Byhalia, and Kassidy Hungate of Byhalia. They were, without a doubt, the greatest joy in her life. They lovingly referred to her as “Maw”, and will miss her deeply.
