Pauline “Big Mama” Dubberly Horne, 99, of Jesup, died Tuesday, November 26, 2019.
A native of Bristol, she was a daughter of Isham and Mary Blocker Dubberly. She was a member of Ritch Baptist Church. She was an incredible woman to say the least. Everyone that knew her, can testify to that. At the age of nine she was in an electrical accident in Patterson that left her without her right arm, and killed her mother as she tried to save her. She overcame her disability and could do more with one arm than most with two. Growing up she picked cotton and tobacco. Later, she married and had two daughters, raised them and worked to help provide for her family. Big Mama loved her family to the fullest. She will be dearly missed. One thing that will be remembered about her is whenever she would see one of her family, she would hug them with her one arm and say “I love ya, I love ya, I love ya.”
She was preceded in death by her husband, Curtis Horne; her daughter, Joe Anne Brinkley and several siblings.
Survivors include a daughter, Jonette (Ronald) Williams, Mauldin, SC; a sister, Nona Faye Mallard, Odum; several grandchildren, great grandchildren, great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
