Lou Edith Jones age 99 of Burkesville, Kentucky passed away on Sunday, April 17, 2016 at NHC HealthCare in Glasgow, KY after an extended illness.  Lou Edith was born on May 14, 1916 in Cumberland County, Kentucky. She was raised in the Big Renox Community of Cumberland County.

Genette, this is indeed an end of an era with the last member of that group who worked together, prayed together, sang together and blessed each other with their love. I can still hear that "Sassafrass" group singing so perfectly in my head. Richard Jones singing beautiful tenor to "Lord Lead Me On" and Bob Scott singing "Just A Little Talk With Jesus". Oh the memories I have of those days. When I recall my youth it is always Cumberland County that comes to mind. What a glorious area to grow up in!!!

At this sad time in your life it is my prayer that the Grace of the Lord envelope your entire family and give you lasting peace. Lou Edith, I am sure, is glad to be laid beside her dear husband at White Hill with her mom and dad only a little distance away. Can you just imagine the reunion in Heaven when she again saw her son and husband? My heart warms just thinking about. I'll pray for your family and ask the One who provides complete comfort to expedite your healing. A life well lived. Rest in Peace dear Lou Edith.
