Angie Hinson, 74, of Macclenny, FL passed away Feb 5, 2018. Mrs Hinson was born in Monroe, GA, to the late Rev. William Melvin Dunagan and Frances Martin Dunagan. She graduated from Colquitt County High School in Moultrie, GA, obtained her Bachelor’s degree from Tift College, Forsyth, GA, and earned her Master’s degree from North Florida University, Jacksonville, FL. She was fascinated with the process of learning, promoted reading to all within arms-reach, and continued to immerse herself into new and exciting topics until her last moments. Teaching was her gift and she taught first in Decatur, GA and then later returned to teach at Fitzgerald High School in GA. For most of her career she taught eight-grade English at Baker County Middle School where she chaired the department for seven years and was selected as Teacher of the Year in 1979-1980. Not one to draw attention to herself, she quietly retired from instructional life in Baker County at the Adult Center. She was a true Renaissance woman who spoke French, read Latin--and could tell you all about astronomy--loved playing classical and even current music on the piano--yet she cherished the simple times with her family and often could be found playing on the floor with her grandchildren. During her life she participated in the Junior Woman’s Club, Beta Sigma Phi teacher’s sorority, the Retired Teachers Association, and was of the Baptist faith. Although very private, Mrs Hinson was generous, enjoyed her service to others, and will be missed by many.
Mrs Hinson is survived by her children: Douglas Hinson of Weddington, NC and Jenny (Hinson) Porter-Haag and Jeremy Haag of Kansas City, MO; Grandchildren: Kyle Hinson, Mariah Hinson, Jack Hinson; Drew Porter, Aleigh Porter, and Matthew Porter; Sisters: Melva and Roger Ezell, Perry, FL; Donna and David McMillan, Clayton, GA as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
The family will hold a private memorial service and burial of Mrs. Hinson’s ashes with her parents at a later date in Tifton, GA. Guerry Funeral Home, US 90 E. Macclenny, FL is in charge of local arrangements. Please sign the online guestbook at
