Dessie Winifred Hollingsworth

From the Biographical History of Primitive or Old School Baptist Ministers by David Montgomery and Mark Green.


Elder Hollingsworth was born on November 16, 1923 in Newton, Mississippi. He was the son of Mrs and Mrs. Dessie Labom Hollingsworth of Lake, Mississippi. Winifred lived most of his life in the rural area of Scott County. He was married to Juanita Welborn on August 3, 1942. Winifred was called into service for the United States Navy in November 1942. He served on the U.S.S. New Jersey battleship and was involved in several battles, but God was watching over him and brought him home safely to his family. After his return home Winifred and Juanita became parents to a beautiful baby girl named Wanda Diane. Unfortunately, she became ill and passed away 23 months later. Several years later Winifred and Juanita became parents again to another daughter named Cheryl. They also later had a son named Dessie Winifred Jr. Winifred would later become a loving Grandfather to his four grandchildren, Bradley and Carrie Glaze and Jessica and Jennifer Hollingsworth. The first church he served was Lebanon Church in Hickory, Mississippi. He also served Fellowship Church for several years; as well as churches in Amory, Mississippi and Mobile, Alabama. He was always willing to fill the stand when called upon. Winifred's home church was Sharon Church in Newton County, where he served for thirty years and right up until his death. Winifred was very true to his studies and would stay up all night to study the Bible. He loved the word of God. Dessie Winifred Hollingsworth passed away on July 21, 1999.
