Services for Agnes Myrle Ridge, 67, of Kilgore will be held at two p.m., Thursday, April 12, 2007 at the Chapel of Rader Funeral Home with the Reverend Freeman Pierce officiating.  Burial will follow in the Mason Cemetery in Arp, Texas.


Mrs. Ridge was born June 3, 1939 in Tyler Texas to the late James and Pearl Stephens.  She was one of two children born to the couple.  Mr. Stephens worked in the oil fields of Texas and New Mexico.  Mrs. Ridge attended Arp Schools.  On December 4, 1955, she and John S. Ridge were married.  She was a homemaker who loved to fish while the children were at school.  “Mammaw”, as all who knew knew her, provided a warm and loving home for her family. 

“Mammaw” was a devoted member of the First Baptist Church of Danville.  She loved children and drove a bus for her church.  Her bus ministry lasted 31 years until her illness forced her to quit driving.  She continued to reach out to “her children” by making phone calls to them.  Mrs. Ridge never met a stranger and was “Mammaw” to many.


She loved to quilt and was a member of the Piney Woods Quilting Club.  Mrs. Ridge was also President of the Pine Tree Club.


Mrs. Ridge is survived by her husband, John S. Ridge of Kilgore; three sons and daughters-in-law, Glenn Ridge and wife Wilma of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Terry Ridge of Kilgore, and Norman Ridge and wife Kena of Hallsville; two daughters and a son-in-law, Teresa Gray and husband Eddie of Henderson, Christi Daily of Texarkana; a brother, James Norman Stephens of Arp; 15 grandchildren and 6 great grand children; and one aunt, Bonnie Gordon of Arp.


Her parents preceded her in death.


The family will receive friends at Rader Funeral Home Wednesday evening between six and eight p.m.
