Maggie Jane Hinnant Horton
November 27, 1925 – November 19, 2021
KNIGHTDALE – Maggie Jane Hinnant Horton, 95, went home peacefully to be with the Lord on Friday night. She was born in Johnston County to the late Harry Lee & Gevie Catherine Whitley Hinnant. She attended Corinth Holder High School. In December 1942, she married the love of her life, W.G., “Red” Horton.
Over the years she was a builder’s wife, a farmer, a seamstress, a quilter, a great cook, a favorite aunt and the caretaker of Midnight. She was famous for her buttermilk biscuits, her no fail chocolate pie, and her love of Christmas and daily devotions. Her most notable titles, though, are those of prayer warrior and friend.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 66 years, W.G “Red” Horton; by her brothers, Jesse Ray Hinnant and John Ashley Hinnant; and her sister, Virginia Hinnant Lane.
She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews; as well as her roommate and friend, Margaret Dunston.
The family wishes to thank the staff and friends who cared for, corresponded with and visited her at the Addison of Knightdale.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Knightdale Baptist Church where Maggie was a devoted member and Sunday School participant.
