A TIME TO BE BORN
Ruth Pearl Mallory was born to the late Arthur William and Mary Annie Yancey on July 19, 1927 in Bumpass, VA (Louisa County). She was the fourth of seven children all of who preceded her in death: Lewis A. Yancey, Virginia A. Chapple, Elsie Upshur, Arthur C. Yancey, Dannie Yancey, Dorothy Jackson, and Marie Collins.
A TIME FOR EVERY PURPOSE UNDER THE HEAVENS
Ruth was married to the late William Arthur Mallory for 63 his death in January 2012. To this union five children were born: Sandra Winston (Douglas) Montpelier, Ronald Mallory (Earline) Mineral, VA; Elder Patricia Banks (Kenneth) N. Chesterfield; Rev. William Mallory (Delores) Richmond, VA; Jerry Mallory (Evangelist Doris Mallory) both deceased. Ruth, Nanny as the grand- children called her, has ten loving grands: Katurah B. Lewis, Christopher Mallory, Anitra B. Massie, Shannen W. Lucky, Eric Banks, Ryan Mallory, Eric Banks, Jamie Mallory, Ronald Mallory, Jr., Shanika Mallory; one deceased, LaShell Mallory-Athey; two sisters-in-law, Lucy Mallory and Ruby Yancey. She has 17 great grandchildren and 1 step grandson and one step great-grandson. Ruth has a lot of relatives, all of whom were special to her, and friends - of whom 4 are special: Lucy Mallory, Lois Ann Graves, Lucille Pryor and Bernadine Henson.
She joined Mt. Zion Baptist Church at an early age, and later moved her name to Mt. Olivet Baptist Church to join her husband and children. Ruth was very active at Mt. Olivet Baptist Church; she belonged to every auxiliary and singing group, with the exception of the usher board and men’s groups. Ruth P. Mallory loved, loved, loved church, and you could find her at any one of them if the doors were open or if someone invited her to go with them - as recently as the week before she became ill. This was a women of God who was on the go!
Our mother was mother to many, and was the hairdresser to most of the Mallorys and Yanceys, back in the day. Ruth did domestic work until she joined the staff at Louisa Manufacturing Factory in Louisa, Virginia, where she worked as a floor worker and later as cutter for 26 years before she retired. Ruth was called to preach the Word in Ministry on May 10, 2003 through a divine experience she likens unto Jonah and the Whale. She attended Virginia University of Lynchburg, Virginia and received her Ministerial Certificate on May 10, 2003. She received her Certificate of License to preach the Gospel Ministry from Mt. Olivet Baptist Church on September 3, 2005. Ruth preached the gospel in season, out of season, and according to her and what we’ve heard and or witnessed her do, was to preach the Roman Road to many of the men who frequented Daddy’s spot under the big oak tree and would come running to her begging to be saved before they died. Ruth had a hot touch through anointing, and could bring healing to your body, soul, and mind
A TIME TO DIE
Our mother was the strongest and most determined person we knew. She was a warrior on all sorts of levels, even in death. The night before she died, we witnessed her ministering to the angels or someone in her room. She’d had a very restless night and day and could not be comforted. We could only hear the compassion and softness in her voice; it was so gentle and reassuring. We wanted to go in to see who it or they were, but were advised her against it because it was not meant for us to hear or to understand. Ruth met with God a short time after that around 11p.m. Though it saddened her, she let Sandra know she would not be here to celebrate her birthday with her in December.
