It is composed in Ecclesiastes that the dust returns to the ground from which it came, and the spirit returns to God who gave it. That comforting scripture reassures individuals remaining behind. On Sunday, April 11, Fannie Huntley Houston’s journey from time to eternity was established in movement, thus satisfying scriptures that have been ordained ahead of the entire world was shaped. Reassurance can be uncovered in realizing that her spirit has, in fact, returned to her loving Father. When she stepped from time to the expanse of eternity’s by no means-ending realm, she did so recognizing that she was without end cherished and treasured and that hers was a life effectively-lived.

Fannie’s journey to this time and spot started when she was born on Jan. 19, 1923 to the parentage of Brown Huntley and Mary Jane Ponder. It was in a loving local community that she grew up and grew to become affiliated with Canaan Galilee Baptist Church and in which she would keep energetic membership all of her lifestyle. Her, pretty much century extended, membership noticed her elevated to the honored and revered position of “Mother of the Church.” She sang in the choir and was president of the Missionary Ministry for a lot more than 40 many years. She held membership in the S & B Modern society and the Lone Star Modern society. She identified immense pleasure in her decades very long membership and affiliation with the Jefferson County Leisure Heart. The pleasure she gave and love she acquired there are testaments to the nobility of her character.
Fannie’s favored tune was Wander with me Lord. A wise female, she normally admonished that it was “better to eat too considerably than to communicate far too a great deal.” Fannie was a lover of vacation and adventure. She journeyed to Washington, DC to witness the inauguration of President Barack Obama as well as many other locations. She was not a back again seat rider. She earned the right to sit in the front seat of autos and that is exactly where she planted herself. If any person mentioned, “Let’s”! Fannie concluded it with “Go.”
The guide of Genesis exhorts that “a spouse of noble character is her husband’s crown.” Fannie grew to become her husband’s crown when they had been married and remained so until her beloved Joe Willie Houston was referred to as from labor to reward on Jan. 8, 1996.
Lengthy after right now, Fannie will be remembered as a important daughter, a committed spouse, a faithful sister, an encouraging aunt, and a loving cousin and commit close friend. Words are inadequate to describe the void that Fannie’s passing has still left in the hearts of all those who liked and cared for her immeasurably.
Those who realized her, realized effectively how she opened her arms to the poor and extended her hands to the needy. For that and so many other virtuous traits she will be without end cherished, remembered, and missed. People now eternally void of her loving existence and most profoundly influenced by her passing are her loving and caring nieces, Margie Boyd, Maxine (John) Macon, Augusta Jennie Collins, Catherine Roberson, Manda (Larry) Boyd, Loretta West, Louisville Vinnie Malloy Cambria Heights, NY Delois Huntley, Atlanta Josie Hadden, Huntsville, AL Annie Roberts, Marietta Alvonia Stozier, Jonesboro Daisy (Ben) Carr, Graniteville, SC and Jacqueline Huntley. Her nephews who want they could hug her and see her smiling deal with, now only have recollections to stand in her put. She will be without end liked and skipped by her devoted nephews, Ben Huntley, Jr. Lithonia, Helpful Brown Huntley, Abe (Carolyn) Huntley, Louisville Raymond McBride, Detroit, MI Kris (Patricia) Huntley, Conyers James Huntley, Donnell (Nicole) Huntley, Fairburn Ronnell (Latoya) Huntley, Albany and Kirk Thompson, Augusta.
Dying leaves a heartache that seemingly no just one can recover. Really like leaves a memory that no a single can steal. Her special and focused cousins Danny Glover and Rufus (Ella) Huntley as effectively as her stepdaughter Joann Marion have to now forge onward with out the radiance of Fannie’s earthly existence.
Fannie leaves a multitude of Canaan Galilee Church family members, cousins, other relative, and a host of Jefferson County Leisure Center relatives.
