Marilue John Huey
February 13, 1950 - September 28, 2022
Marilue John Huey, 72, of Big Canoe, Georgia, peacefully passed away on September 28, 2022. Born on February 13, 1950, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Marilue is survived by her husband of 51 years, Wayne Alan Huey, and her sons, Ryan William Huey and his wife Gwin and Kevin Alan Huey and his wife Megan. She was blessed with her first grandson, Holden John Huey, born December 30, 2020. Holden knew Marilue as "Luci." Marilue is also survived by her mother, Odessa John (102), and her sister, Connie Wallace, along with numerous brothers in law and sisters in law, and nieces and nephews. Marilue was a devoted wife, caring daughter, loving mother, and a doting grandmother.
Marilue graduated from Wichita East High School in Wichita, Kansas, where she was an exceptional student and competitive tennis player. She attended Harding University, Searcy, Arkansas, majoring in Physical Science and Education with a certification to teach. She attained the designation of Summa Cum Laude in her graduating class.
Marilue and Wayne met at Harding, married in 1971, and moved to York, Nebraska. There, she taught 6th and 7th grade Science. During their 51-year marriage, Wayne's career landed them in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Atlanta, Georgia.
Marilue was an excellent Bible student based on her mother's exceptional guidance and example. Her love of teaching children carried over to children's Bible classes, which she taught off and on throughout her life. Her life as a Jesus follower and her teaching gift influenced the lives of many children wherever she lived, and in the churches she served.
After the Hueys permanently moved to Big Canoe in 2001, they attended the Browns Bridge Church campus of the North Point Ministries, again teaching young children. Over recent years, Marilue was a part of Browns Bridges' Care Ministry in the Renew Program. In this role, she provided lay counseling to women amid life difficulties, where she taught and walked beside them to strengthen their faith.
In addition to her outstanding teaching abilities, Marilue had the gift of decorating and interior design. During her years at Cynthia Aiken Interiors, she impressed many customers with her beautiful smile, warmth, and professional decorating approach. Additionally, her home was her delight and impeccably decorated, ready for her hospitality. She made every occasion special with her creativity and the love of her family and guests.
Her family and many loving friends praise God for blessing them with the warm and caring memories of Marilue. Marilue's life will be celebrated on Saturday, October 22, at 1:00 pm at Trinity Church, located at 2685 Steve Tate Hwy, Marble Hill, Georgia, 30148.
