Obituary of Mrs. Julia Lee Haynes

Julia Lee (Childs) Haynes was born May 31, 1944 in Manchester Georgia to the late Willie and
Willie Mae (Weaver) Childs.
Julia answered her savior’s call and made her transition from this earthly life into eternal life on
Thursday, December 17, 2020.
Julia was preceded in death by her husband Milton Haynes Sr., two brothers, Rayford K. Childs
and Willie Gene Childs, two sisters, Anna Mae (Childs) Haynes and Diane Childs.
Julia was educated in the public school system of Manchester GA.
After graduating from high school, she moved to Reading PA where she met the love of her life
Milton Haynes Sr. They were united in Matrimony on April 15, 1963 and soon relocated to
Philadelphia to begin their life together.
In June of 1972 Julia along with her husband Milton opened their own business known as
Haynes Food and Variety Store in West Phila. It was the second black owned store in the
Julia known by her neighbors as “Mrs. Haynes” or “Mom-Mom” was respected and loved
throughout the neighborhood. She was known for her gentle wisdom often taking the time to
talk and encourage the youth who would frequent her business. She was also known for her
generosity to others like when she would sneak a few extra pieces of your favorite candy in the
bags of the neighborhood children.
Julia wore many hats and was known to her family by many names such as “Aunt J”, “Aunt
Julia” and “Aunt Lee”. No matter which title was used it was always answered with a smile and
followed by that contagious laugh that we all will surely miss especially during this time of year
because Christmas was her favorite holiday.
Julia leaves to cherish the memories of her life one daughter, Cynthia Haynes, one son, Milton
Haynes Jr.; grandchildren, Ricky Haynes (Jazz), and Allen Watkins; seven great grandchildren;
one sister, Josephine Trimble; one brother, Bert T. Childs; brother in laws, Charlie Haynes and
William C. Haynes; sister in laws, Bertha Childs, Annie S. Ingram, Mary Jean Doleman, Geraldine
Arrington, Earnestine Towles and Valerie Booth; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and neighbors.
