"There's an open gate at the end of the road. Through which each must go alone, and there in light we cannot see, Our Father claims His own"
It was at Daniel Freeman Medical Center, Friday, December 31, 1982 at 7:34 P.M. that the Father's welcome voice saying "Well Done" was heard by Sister Deola Himes Bauld. "Baby Bauld" as she was lovingly called was the youngest of five children born to John and Hannah Himes (all preceded her in death) on October 15, 1897 in Taylortown, Louisiana. The love that radiated in this home was begotten in the children, and expressed itself throughout their lives.
She was married to Frank Bauld who also preceded her in death. Two beautiful children blessed this home. On June 6, 1932, she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior at the Hopewell Baptist Church, Shreveport Louisiana under the pastorate of the late Rev. Essex Stills. Where she sang in the Choir and worked in the Missionary Society.
In 1940, she moved to Los Angeles and joined the St. Paul Baptist Church, the late Rev. Williams, Pastor. Here she remained for six years and upon the illness of a sister, returned to Shreveport and cared for her until her demise.
In 1962, she returned to Los Angeles and united with the True Samaritan Baptist Church, Rev. Stephen F. Hopkins, Pastor and worked diligently in the Missionary Society, on the Mother's Board, Flower Guild and Sunday school, making great contributions to the furtherance of God's Kingdom.
She had a keen memory and recited many poems, among them "What Time Is It?", " Use What You Have", "My 44 Years" the latter authored by a former pastor and friend of the family, Rev. C.E. Galloway, who followed her in death on January 1,1983.
She was quite adept with her fingers and was always sewing, helping people, her favorite words: I Love People". For the Christmas holidays she made four lap quilts as her contribution to our Missionary project for the elderly.
A life lived as Mother Bauld Lived cannot die, but lives on in the hearts, memories and ideals of all who loved and knew her.
Those left to cherish her memories are two devoted children, Mr. Albert Matthews, Mrs. Nola Mae Carter, eleven grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren, four nieces, four nephew, host of other relatives and friends, including a class mate Mrs. Jessie Baker, Palmdale, California and The True Samaritan Baptist Church and Pastor Stephen F. Hopkins.
