Ms. Willie Ruth Person

The life of Ms. Willie Ruth Person began on November 30, 1927 in Franklin, Georgia to the late, Mr. Berry Person and Mrs. Lona Childs Person. Willie was the youngest born to her parents.

She united with the Canaan Baptist Church at an early age.

After moving to LaGrange as a young adult, she was gainfully employed as a Domestic Worker for many years. In 1970, she began her employment with the LaGrange Education System, from which she retired after 20 years of service.

Early Sunday morning, November 5, 2018, Willie quietly and peacefully made her transition into the Gates of Heaven to be alongside God and his many, many angles. Eight brothers and four sisters preceded her in death.

She leaves to cherish her wonderful memories of family and friends, especially her loving niece and caregiver, Ann Williams of Fayetteville, GA; one dear and devoted brother, Eddie B. (Odessa) Person, Franklin, GA; and a host of nieces, nephews, and many other loving relatives.

The Celebration of Life Service will be Saturday, November 10, 2018 at 2:00 PM in the Chapel of Lakes-Dunson-Robertson Funeral Home. Pastor Allen Simpson, III and Minister Ronnie Person will officiate. Burial will follow at Southview Cemetery.

Lakes-Dunson-Robertson Funeral Home of Lagrange is in charge of the arrangements.
