Abby Widener

Abby Widener, 18 formerly of Dumas, passed away on Monday, March 25, 2019. The funeral service will be conducted at 2 oclock in the afternoon on Friday, March 29, 2019 at Bible Baptist Church with Pastor Dan Darter of Spring Valley Baptist Church officiating. Interment will follow in the Dumas Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 6 oclock until 8 oclock in the evening on Thursday at the funeral home. Arrangements are entrusted to Morrison Funeral Directors. Abby was born on June 19, 2000, in Dumas, TX to Johnny and Stacy (Johnson) Widener. At a young age, the family would move to Ghana, Africa to serve the Lord in the mission field. Abby grew up for the majority of her life in Ghana and developed a special place in her heart for the country and the people. The family later moved back to Dumas where she completed her education, ran cross country and graduated from Dumas High School. Abby always had a smile on her face and loved to make me people laugh. She was known for always having her makeup on just perfect before she would go anywhere. In her younger years, she would hide behind her mothers skirt and adopted the title of her mothers shadow. Abby was a very determined young lady and had big dreams, her goal being to become a surgeon. She was a member of the Bible Baptist Church and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. Abby is survived by her parents, Pastor Johnny Widener and wife Stacy of Dumas; siblings: Rachael Widener of Amarillo, TX, Becky Widener of Amarillo, TX, Jonathan Widener, wife Emilee and their child Jaylee of Amarillo, TX, Hannah Lewis and husband Austin of Dumas, TX; grandparents: Dale and Alice Widener of Dumas, TX and Lewis and Nancy Johnson of Dumas, TX; uncles: Jeff Widener and wife Dora of Amarillo, TX and Jerry Johnson and wife Wendy of Parker, CO; a host of cousins and extended family members. The family suggests with gratitude that memorials be made to The Bible Baptist Church Ghana Mission Fund, 212 W 1st Street, Dumas TX 79029.

I only had the honor of meeting Bro. and Mrs. Widener one time while they were missionaries, but I enjoyed it so much. Their love for all of their children was evident. My heart breaks for you all and I am lifting you up to the Lord that he may comfort you as only He can. - Valerie Basham, wife to pastor Terry Basham, II at Bethel Baptist Church in Lawton, Oklahoma.
