Reverend Fannie Belle Hale went home to be with her Lord at 9:35 p.m. on Monday, September 21, 2020 at Mason Health and Rehabilitation Center of Warsaw at the age of 85.
She was born on October 8, 1934 in Garret, Kentucky to Ervin Clarence Bartley and Bertha Mae (Tyree) Bartley Carpenter. In July of 1952 she was married to Glenn Ivan Hale. They were only able to share 13 years of marriage together before he passed away in November of 1965, but she always had a lifetime of love for him.
Fannie was an ordained minister and evangelist in the Pentecostal Faith. She was the longest standing ordained female minister in the PCG Organization. She felt called to international relief-work through her missionary work through the church having done so in Haiti, Jamaica, Russia, Bolivia and here in the Appalachian Mountains. She loved to evangelize and did so not only in the U.S., but world-wide. She dedicated her life teaching men, women and children about the love of God, and the importance of having a personal relationship with the Lord and knowing Him for yourself. She enjoyed having fellowship with family and friends and she enjoyed attending church services as much as possible. Fannie served as an ordained minister and evangelist for most of her life and her passion in presenting God's word never stopped until her last breath. She always had a heart for serving and helping others and made sure that people in need were fed and clothed. Spreading the Word and love of Jesus was always first and foremost, but she loved to spend time with her family. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a friend to many. She would most want to be remembered for her steadfast faith in her Savior Jesus Christ.
She will be lovingly remembered by her two sons: Timothy Lee (Becky) Hale (Bristol, Indiana); K. Dan (Kelly) Hale (Silver Lake, Indiana); eight grandchildren, and eleven great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, daughter, Dianna Lynn Hale-Rixter, two brothers, Bob and Don Bartley, and three sisters, Jackie Gorsline, Jean Carletha Bartley-Rogers, and Naomi Bartley.
Visitation will be held from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 24, 2020 God’s Highway to Heaven Church, 555 W. Webber Street, Warsaw, Indiana. There will also be time for visitation an hour prior to the service on Friday, from 9:00 -10:00 a.m. Reverend Fannie’s life will be celebrated with a service at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, September 25, 2020 at God’s Highway to Heaven Church in Warsaw and officiated by Pastor Bob Brown. She will be laid to rest next at Constantine Township Cemetery in Constantine, Michigan. Arrangements were entrusted to Redpath-Fruth Funeral Home, 225 Argonne Road, Warsaw, Indiana.
