Ricie Ada Phillips Quesenberry, our precious mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, of Indian Valley, joined her Heavenly Father and all her loved ones in Heaven on Saturday, October 1, 2011. She is singing with the Heavenly Choir just like she sang at her home church each Sunday, Indian Valley Pentecostal Church in Indian Valley, where she was a faithful member for 62 years. She ministered at many churches over the years and also taught Sunday School at her home church until about one year ago when her health started failing. She loved good gospel singing and would rejoice openly to her Lord and Savior. Her day always started with reading her Bible and praying in earnest before she ate breakfast. The last thing she did each day was kneel down by her bedside to pray thanking God for His many blessings and then she would pray that each of her family would be saved and be able to meet her in Heaven. She lived a good Christian life and was a shining light to everyone who knew her.
Our father passed away September 27, 1947, leaving Mom with three small children to raise, 8 months, 3 years and 6 years old. She was a Mother and Father both to us but never complained at all. We will miss her terribly-we LOVE you Mom! She dearly loved all her family: her children, grandchildren, sister, nieces, and nephews and all their children. She was born October 14, 1921, and would have been 90 years young this birthday. We had planned a big celebration for her but she will now be celebrating in Heaven.
She was preceded in death by: husband, Arnold Quesenberry; son, David Jerry Quesenberry; father and mother, Ulysus and Alma Phillips; sisters, Mazie Quesenberry, Hassie Lyons, and Nellie Phillips; brothers, Wavely Phillips, LeRoy Phillips and his wife Myrtle Phillips.
Funeral service will be Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at 1 p.m. at the Willis Full Gospel Church (163 Burks Fork Road in Willis. Burial will be at the Captain George Quesenberry Cemetery in Indian Valley. Visitation will be Monday, October 3, 2011 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the church.
