ROOTS, Montie Edith (nee Pendleton) of Cincinnati, Ohio went to be with her Savior on June 24, 2010 at the Brookwood Retirement Community. She was born on November 26, 1923 in Casey, County, Kentucky and resided in Cincinnati since 1942. Montie was the daughter of Fayette (Fate) Pendleton and Sadie Wright. She was preceded in death by five brothers: Elvin, Robert, Carl, Ruby and Estill. She is survived by her husband of over 71 years, Richard C. Roots and two sons, Paul E. (Sandy) Roots, Richard (Sharon) Roots, her brother Shirl (Shirley)Pendleton, three grandsons, four great-granddaughters, and sister-in-laws, Ovedia Pendleton, Louise Hylton, Shirley Roots and Gladys Pierce. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, including a very special nephew, Tom (Kim) Pendleton. Montie was a long-time resident of Carthage and long-time member of the Fellowship Tabernacle. She was hard working and a stay-at-home mother who was dedicated to caring for her family. Visitation will take place at the Fellowship Tabernacle, 6910 Vine St., Carthage, 45216 Monday from 10 a.m. until time of funeral service at 11 a.m. Interment to follow at Oak Hill Cemetery, Springdale, Ohio. The family would like to extend deepest thanks to the caring staff and volunteers at Brookwood Retirement Community and also the personnel of Hospice of Cincinnati. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Fellowship Tabernacle or to the charity of the donorâ€™s choice.
I wanted to express my deepest sympathy and concern for you and also share with you the wonderful hope for our dead loved ones. As you grieve Montieâ€™s death, please reflect on the hope in question, which comes from Jehovah God. By means of the Bible, He allows us to understand how Heâ€™ll eliminate death for good one day and bring our dead loved ones back to life. This is evident in Scriptures like (Isaiah 25: 8), (John 5: 28), (1 Corinthians 15:26), (Revelation 21:3 and 4), which can comfort you in this time of sorrow. Godâ€™s promises are guaranteed because He cannot lie. Moreover John 11 verses 11-14, 39, 43, and 44 attests that Jesus, whom God appoints to bring the dead back to life, can do it since he did it when he resurrected Lazarus and several others when he was on earth. As you await Montieâ€™s resurrection, please heed Jesusâ€™ counsel in John 17 verse 3 and take steps to gain accurate knowledge of God and Jesus by carefully studying the Bible with the Jehovahâ€™s Witnesses. In John 5 verse 39, Jesus explains that such study is imperative for anyone, who wishes to have everlasting life one day here on earth, which will become a paradise where you can be re-united with Montie again in a world free of violence, war, sickness, old age, even death etcâ€¦ (Ps 37: 9-11 and 29), (Psalms 46: 8 and 9), (Isaiah 33:24), (Job: 33:25).
May Jehovah Comfort You!
