Sibyl Burrow Hathcock, 85, of Amory Miss, died Sunday, August 2, 2015 at home, under the care of Gentiva Hospice. Born July 11, 1930, in Monroe County, she was the daughter of the late Weir and Donnie Burrow. She married Hoyet Hathcock July 4, 1947. She was a stay-at-home mother for many years and later worked for South Central Bell in Mobile and Tuscaloosa, AL. She was a nurse at West Alabama Hospital in Northport, AL until her retirement in 1988. As the wife of a minister, she moved many times in her married life, living in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama. She was a faithful companion, who loved her husband and children, and was always cheerful as she relocated and set up housekeeping many times over. Her children would learn that home was not a house but rather where your family was. Mrs. Hathcock took pride in all the things she did from being a Christian, wife, mother, homemaker, nurse, to later being a grandmother and great grandmother. She loved gardening and traveling with her husband. As a couple in their later life, they were known to just throw a suitcase in the car and head for Mt. View, Arkansas, without notifying anyone until they got there.
