A beautiful soul has soared to heaven! Fanny Blanche Compton George, known as Mama Fan or Miss Fanny to most of Yell County, died on September 2, 2012 in her home.

Her early life was spent in Wing, Arkansas. At the age of 13, she moved to Danville, where she finished high school. She attended Galloway College for one semester, before falling in love over Christmas Break with C.R.(Babe) George. The two were married March 27, 1932. They had a wonderful life together in Danville, where Babe was an attorney and Municipal Judge. They raised two children, who still survive, Janette George Richison and Dr. Lary Compton Sr. and wife, Phyllis VanZandt George. She is also survived by 5 grandchildren and their spouses, Debra Richison and Bill Stuckey, Frances Richison and Rev.

She worked to get the vote for the Yell County Hospital and was the sole surviving charter member of the Danville Music Club. She served the American Cancer Society, PTA, B&PW, and the Historical Society. In her church, she taught various Sunday School classes, was involved with the United Methodist Women, and participated in many Lay Witness Missions in several states. Fanny always was a doer; a supporter. She shopped locally first and was a patriot's patriot. For years, she was 'oldest homecomer' at Danville homecomings. In 2006, the Danville Chamber of Commerce named her "Citizen of the Year" to honor her community service. For 26 years, she was Grand Marshall of the Yell County Fair Parade, leading the parade on horseback. Last year, at the age of 98! She led the parade for the last time on a horse named Trinity. She had many accomplishments, but her greatest contributions to society were her loving family and her friendship. She never stopped making friends, and to be her friend or family was to know a fierce loyalty and JOY! She will be welcomed into heaven by a huge cloud of witnesses, among whom are her parents, Buford and Jap Caviness Compton, her husband CR (Babe) George, her dear sister, Mary Nell Compton Keathley Lewis, and her son-in-law, Charles E. Richison.

All of her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and first cousins also preceded her. Fanny lived a full, real life in her big white house by the side of the road with the door that opened to anyone who needed a hand, an ear, a shoulder, a few bucks, or just a good laugh. She never stopped growing in her faith. Never. She loved Nature and Nature's God. She especially loved gardens and birds; our Arkansas mountains and creeks; sunshine and rain. She had a style all her own that usually included sparkles and a hat. Although she could be strict, she was Fun with a capital F, and spunky and sweet right up to the end.

It was wonderful to be loved by her! She cherished her past, did not fear the future, and seized the present with both hands! Funeral service will be 2:00 p.m. Thursday, September 6, 2012 at the Danville Methodist Church. Burial will be at Earl Ladd Cemetery.
