A mother, a grandmother, a sister, an aunt, faithful Trustee, Deaconess and friend- all of which and more embodied the true love and spirit of Sister Ruth Gaither Jones. Through her faith she raised a family of her own all the while caring for the needs of her siblings. As her health waned she nonetheless battled her illnesses head on for 5 and a half years. By example, she instilled the faith that she had in God into everyone that she knew and loved. Sister Jones dedicated herself to Him and faithfully was a devoted member of Messiah Missionary Baptist Church for over 50 years. Praising His name even in her final days, Messiah was her second home and place where she found the strength to carry on for her family and loved ones, leading up to the day she was called home. To honor both Sister Jones' memory and her love for Messiah, her family is raising $25,000 to purchase new pews for the church. No gift is too small and will be fully tax deductible. On Sunday, November 20th, we will gather at Messiah Missionary Baptist Church to celebrate sister Jones' love and commitment to Messiah. those choosing to assist in the endeavor are welcome to join us. Sister Jones spent her life by His word. Please help us keep her spirit alive in the place she called home.
