The  Murphy-Parks  Funeral  Home
July 27, 2015
          Mikayla Alexis Waggoner,  19, of Shelbyville, IN, passed away Sunday, July 26, 2015.  She was born and raised in Shelbyville, and graduated from there in 2013 - a year ahead of her other classmates.  Mikayla was entering her junior year at Xavier University and was studying International Studies-International Business.  She was scheduled to study abroad in September, journeying to Salzburg, Austria, where she was planning to spend an entire semester.  She was an avid animal rights supporter, starting at an early age by taking it upon herself to set up a lemonade stand and donating all of her earnings to the local animal shelter. Mikayla continued this selfless act for several years.  She also was determined to accomplish her dream of graduating from college, working as many jobs as she could to help offset the costs.  She did not accept the word "cannot" in her life, and she will always be remembered for her fierce determination, her deep desire to accomplish her goals, and her stop at nothing attitude.
          Mikayla is survived by her parents,  James and  Suzanne Waggoner,  her brother,  Nikolas Waggoner,  her grandparents,  Judy Waggoner  (Waldron, IN) and  Kenneth and  Gena Stafford  (Flat Rock, IN), her uncle and aunt,  Patrick and Crystal Walls  (New Castle, IN), her uncle and aunt,  Aaron and Nikki Orr  (Germany), and her cousins,  Zachary Debord  (New Castle, IN) and  Aiden Orr  (Germany).  Mikayla is also survived by many extended family members in Indiana and West Virginia, as well as the plethora of chosen family and friends she made throughout her short but irreplaceable life.
          Her unique spirit, benevolent soul, and goofy smile will be celebrated during a visitation Sunday, August, 2, 2015, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Murphy-Parks Funeral Service, 703 S. Harrison St., Shelbyville, IN.  A memorial service will follow at 5 p.m. with the Rev. Alecia Gross officiating.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Mikayla's name to Animal Outreach of Shelby County, 910 Revello St., Shelbyville, IN 46176; or Shelbyville/Shelby County Animal Shelter, 705 Hale Road, Shelbyville, IN 46176.

One of The Most Prominent Residents
of Waldron Community Is Dead
          The angel of death laid a heavy hand on the little village of Waldron Friday morning when Hayden Wagoner, one of the most highly respected citizens of that community died at 9:45 this morning.  Death was caused from heart trouble and followed an illness of two weeks’ duration.
          Mr. Wagoner was born in Orange township, Rush county seventy-two years ago and the son of  Mr. and Mrs. Milton Wagoner, pioneer residents of that township who came to that place from Kentucky.  Mr. Wagoner had been married twice, the first wife died eleven years ago.  He again married about seven years ago and his widow survives. Mr. Wagoner, who was one of the best known residents of that community, had been a member of the Waldron M.E. church since early childhood and was always one of the leading workers in this church.  He was also a member of the Waldron Masonic lodge.  Deceased has been a farmer in this county for many years and only retired and moved to Waldron about seven years ago.
          Surviving besides the widow, he leaves three children,  Otto Wagoner, of Waldron;  Mrs. Delbert Norris, of Liberty township; and  Mrs. Dora Hungerford, of St. Paul.  Three sisters and one brother also survive,  Mrs. Sally Wagoner, of Blue Ridge;  Mrs. Vannilla Simpson, of Waldron;  Mrs. Hannah Busby, of Illinois, and  James Wagoner, who resides on the old home place in Orange township.
          Funeral services will be conducted at the Vienna church, near Blue Ridge Sunday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock. Burial will be made in the church cemetery, Stewart & Fix undertakers in charge.

          Hayden Hayes Wagoner,  son of the late Milton L. and Lavina McDuffee Wagoner, was born in Rush county, Indiana, June 18th 1849, and closed his eyes in peaceful slumber at his late home in Waldron, Indiana, Friday morning, August 5, 1921, having reached the age of 72 years, 1 month and 19 days.
From his youth he was a good student, having completed his common school work in Orange township, Rush county. He afterward graduated from the Milroy Normal school and spent a number of years teaching in the district schools of this locality.
          His Christian training began in early childhood. His honored parents presented him to the Lord for Christian baptism in infancy and like Timothy "from a child he has known the holy scriptures." Early in life he united with the "Old" Ebenezer Methodist Episcopal church, which is now known as the Gowdy M.E. church, and a few years later in response to his inward convictions, yielded himself completely to the Lord and was fully saved.
The time and place where he first felt his sins forgiven was an experience he often referred to and kindled a constant flame of holy zeal throughout his entire life.
          On October 6, 1870 he was first married to Elizabeth Boys, to which union three children came to bless the home. One son, Otto Wagoner, of Waldron; Mrs. Delbert Norris, of Liberty township, Shelby county; and Mrs. Dora Hungerford, of St. Paul, Indiana.
          The first home for this happy little family was in Shelby county, near the Vienna M.E. church.  With his whole house, he worshiped and worked with the people of that congregation as faithful members of the same.  As a result of his earnest desire for the welfare of others and because of his unusual gifts for Christian work, the congregation voted to license him to preach, which relation he willingly accepted, and faithfully maintained throughout the remaining years.
          The first great sorrow that fell upon this father and companion, was the death of his devoted wife, and loving mother of the surviving children, on April 27, 1910.  This he bore most bravely and succeeded in maintaining the old home place on the farm, until in June of 1911 he married  Melissa Aldridge of Rushville, Indiana, who was taken by death the following year, May 27, 1912.
          On Thanksgiving Day, November 1914, Mrs. Ellen Ensminger of Shelbyville, Indiana became his devoted companion for the remainder of his life.
          Shortly after their marriage they moved to Waldron, Indiana, where they enjoyed a most blessed period of companionship and devotion.
          Their home was sacred and beautiful; their fellowship with friends was sweet and their church activities were the joy of their life.
          Brother Wagoner was also a member of the Masonic order of Waldron, and was held in the highest esteem by all the brothers of that fraternity.
          His life in the community was one of wholesome influence and was the best of our citizenship.
          He leaves to sorrow, his wife and three children; five grandchildren; three sisters, Mrs. Rhuama Busby, of Illinois; Mrs. Sarah Wagoner, of Blue Ridge, Mrs. Venilla Simpson, of Waldron; and one brother, James Wagoner, of Rush county.
          The passing of brother Wagoner marks the close of a remarkable life, remarkable was it in the point of years; remarkable in the abundance of faith; remarkable in richness of experience and wholly influence. Like Stephen he was a man full of the Holy Spirit. Like Paul, he counted all things but loss for the excellancy of the knowledge of Christ.
          Like his own blessed Master, he could truthfully say, "I have finished the work that thou gavest me to do."
          Over a life so well lived, and so triumphantly closed, we may confidently pronounce the eulogy contained in the hymn of Charles Wesley:
                              Servant of God, well done!
                              Thy glorious warfare’s past
                  The battle fought, the race is won
                  And thou art counted at last.
          The funeral services were held at the Vienna M. E. church, Sunday afternoon, August 7, 1921.  Songs by the Waldron M.E. Quartets.  Text: Psalm 1:15 "As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness:  I shall be satisfied when I awake, with thy likeness."  Scripture lesson read by Rev. J. L. Brown, from 2nd Corinthians 5th chapter.
