We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Mounts Funeral Home Inc.
On Friday, May the 13th, with family by her side, Madge Doris Justice departed this life at the age of 92 and went straight into the arms of her Savior. Madge was born on August 18, 1929, in Portsmouth, Ohio. She was the eldest daughter of Elizabeth and Dempsey Harris. She was preceded in death by her parents and her loving husband, Everett, of which she shared 49 years of marriage. In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her dear daughter-in-law: Sharon Justice; two brothers: Hillard and Kenneth Harris; and a special one-of-a-kind sister: Faye Cline.
Madge left behind three children: Gary (Phyllis) Justice of Justice, Gordon Justice of North Spring, and Beth (Mark) Thompson of Gilbert. Four grandchildren that she absolutely adored: Matthew (Mary Beth) Justice of Gilbert, Gehrig Justice of Justice, Garin (Casie) Justice of Dallas, Texas, and Amanda (Chad) Kenneda of North Spring. Four Great grandchildren: Ethan, Mattie, Juliet, and Carter. One sister: Brenda (Robert) Taylor of Petersburg, Michigan; and a host of nieces and nephews. Anyone who knew Madge knew that her family was the center of her life.
Madge worked for the United States Postal Service as a clerk and postmaster until she retired in 1987. While serving and working with the public, she made many lifelong friends.
Madge was a member of the North Spring Baptist Church. She loved studying God’s word and was an avid reader of the Bible even in the last week of her life. She loved attending church and after she was no longer able to go, she treasured listening to taped sermons. Madge loved bike riding and water aerobics which she did until she was no longer able. As so many knew, she was an exceptional cook and if you ever visited her, there was no way possible to leave hungry.
The family will be served by Mounts Funeral Home in Gilbert, West Virginia. Friends and family may visit on Tuesday evening, May 17th, 2022 from 6 to 9 PM at the funeral home chapel. Funeral services will be conducted by her son, Pastor Gary Justice, on Wednesday, May 18th at 11 AM. She will be laid to rest beside her husband in the Wilson Cemetery in Justice, West Virginia. Pallbearers will be her grandsons: Matthew Justice, Gehrig Justice and Chad Kenneda, her son-in-law: Mark Thompson, and her nephews: Mark Cline and Richard Harris.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to the “girls” as Madge called them. Rachel Morgan, Virgie Profit, and Tonda King, who spent endless nights caring for, pampering, and loving her.
Madge loved life but grew weary of being sick and unable to do the things she wanted. As she would pray, she would ask daily for Jesus to take her home. Last Friday at 8 PM, she was granted her wish!
