October 10, 1929 - September 8, 2019
Martha Francis S. Rainey was born on October 10, 1929 in Danville, Illinois. She was the only daughter born to the union of Joseph and Opal Buchanan. On November 26, 1949, she married Samuel Rainey Jr. They had two sons and four daughters. In 1969, Martha symbolized her dedication to Jehovah by means of water baptism at the “Peace on Earth” International Assembly of Jehovah’s Witnesses (White Sox Park). From that day forward dedicated to Jehovah she was. She served as a full-time minister (regular pioneer) for many years. She taught her children and anyone who would listen to her about Jehovah and His Kingdom. She loved Jehovah, his son, his organization, her family, his people, and her neighbors. She was loved by them in return. Besides her love for the ministry, Martha Rainey enjoyed cleaning and spending time with her family and friends. Jehovah was her confidence. She would always tell her children, “Trust in Jehovah”. She fell asleep in death on September 8, 2019. She was listening to the public talk on the telephone hook up. She didn’t believe in missing the meeting. Until Jehovah awakes her from her sleep, Martha Rainey will be missed.
