Joseph Emmett Flowers (1934-2019)
Joseph (Joe) Emmett Flowers was born on December 20, 1934 in McKenzie, Alabama. He went home to be with the Lord, and his beloved wife Charlie Mae Flowers of 61 years, on March 29, 2019.
He worked for twenty years with the National Linen Service. He was also a Route Supervisor for G and K Linen for over 10 years. He began working in the Linen Service industry when he was only 20 years old. He was such a devoted and hard worker. He took great pride in taking care of his family and friends. In addition, he was extremely generous to everyone who knew him, and to many he never met, who may have been down on their luck.
Joe had a larger than life personality, anyone who ever met him will never forget him! He was always up for visitors, hot coffee, and had a great gift for telling stories. And his stories… no one knows how he knew everything he knew. He knew information before it ever came out publicly, he was definitely in “the know”.
However, most importantly, he was a dedicated husband, father, and grandfather. His love for his family showed with every undertaking he pursued.
He is preceded in death by his wife Charlie Mae Flowers, siblings, Elma Gordan, George Flowers, Jesse Flowers, Bill Flowers, Earl Flowers, Emma Jean Davis, and Everette Flowers. He is survived by his daughters, Jo Anna Reneau (James Bryant Reneau, Sr.) Elma Kaye Byrd (Victor Clayton Byrd), grandchildren, James Bryant Reneau, Jr., Sara Alisha Byrd, and Seth Andrew Byrd. Funeral services are scheduled for Tuesday, April 2, 2019 at 12:00 Noon from the Chapel of Mobile Memorial Gardens Funeral Home with visitation beginning at 11:00 AM. Interment will be in Mobile Memorial Gardens.
A chapel service will be held at 12pm on Tuesday, 4/2/2019 from Mobile Memorial Gardens Funeral Home, followed by a committal service at the grave site.
