Marsha Lynn Whitehead, 77, of Pangburn passed away June 26, 2020. She was born in Searcy on April 22, 1943 to the late "Dink" and Vivian Allen Sharp.
Marsha was a longtime member of the Pangburn United Methodist Church and was very active in her community in many areas. She also retired from the Pangburn Public School System with 20 plus years of faithful service.
She is survived by her two sons, Todd (Paula) Whitehead and Denny (Karen) Whitehead all of Pangburn; three grandchildren, Will (Samantha) Whitehead of Minneapolis, MN, Ben Whitehead of Letona and Bailey (Zach) Stansberry of Bentonville; and two great-grandchildren, Holden Whitehead and Ellie Stansberry along with other loving family members and a host of friends.
Marsha was a life-long resident of Pangburn and loved the place that she called home. She had many names given to her such as friend, mom, Granny Grunt and many more. Her family and friends were very important to her and when she called you friend, you were her friend forever. She loved to "Bog-Around" with anyone she could get to go with her. She was a collector of many things from her friends to dirt and sand and she remembered where each one came from. Her kids said "she loved life."
In her life travels she saw many things that were special to her. Friends knew when she was going "Bogging Around" they would be a while and they would shop, site see or whatever she wanted to do, but they would and did have a great time. She was a good athlete and played basketball at Pangburn and later played at ASU-Beebe while she was in college.
Marsha had a well-rounded life because her interests took her many places. She loved music of all types and she loved to dance. She had a ticket to go see Elvis Presley in concert the night after he died, and she has kept all this time along with some gravel she picked up one time from the driveway of Graceland. Her kids called her the "Life of the Party" and a "Social Butterfly" because she enjoyed being with people and wanted to have fun in everything that she set out to do and wanted everyone who did it with her to have a good time.
In Lieu of flowers the family has asked Memorials be made to a charity of your choice that assisted in the care and support of Marsha during this time of her illness. Some were Hospice, Alzheimer Association, Cancer Society and The Pangburn Fire Department
