Such is the living testimony of our loved one, Agnes Gertrude Lamberth Pinnix. She was born in Rockingham County, North Carolina to the late Clyde and Claudia Jones Lamberth on December 31, 1932. On Sunday, May 1, 2022, she was called home to Glory for her eternal rest.
A resident of Rockingham County, Agnes attended the county schools for her formal education. It was during her youth that she met and married the love of her life, the late James Romeo Pinnix. The loving wife and husband bore two lovely children, Hazel and Janet.
A daughter of devout parents, Agnes was baptized into the fellowship of High Rock Grove Missionary Baptist Church at a tender age. Later in life, she joined Brown’s Chapel Missionary Baptist Church. She loved her church and was involved in Sunday School, the Missionary Circle, choir and other church activities and ministries. There was not a task that needed to be done that she did not contribute her share in making it successful. Because of her love for singing, she joined the Senior Choir and sang in it until her failing health made it difficult for her to sing anymore. Loving the work of the Missionaries, she joined the group and worked diligently to carry out missionary duties. She was one of the first members appointed when the Deaconess Ministry was organized and she remained an active member until her health began to fail.
Agnes attended Rockingham Community College receiving an Associate Degree in Cosmetology. She worked for many years in Rachel’s Beauty Salon and later in her home as a stylist, where she enjoyed her craft.
Her gentle manner, loving and caring spirit led her to assist others in the community when a nee would arise. She enjoyed helping others and would expend her energies, finances and service in the process. Her love and actions will be forever etched in the hearts and minds of her family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances.
In addition to her parents and beloved husband, a grandson, Rodney Blackwell; siblings, Howard “June” Lamberth, Naomi Lamberth, Min. Helen Smith and Wylene Mitchell, preceded her in death.
Remembering priceless memories and unforgettable experiences are: loving daughters, Hazel Alexander and Janet Blackwell; 3 grandchildren; 9 great-grandchildren; sisters, Marie Graves, Min. Rachel Bolden (Bobby) and Louise Jeffries (Donnell); brothers, Raymond Leroy Lamberth (Kim), Robert Lamberth and Charles Lamberth (Carolyn); sister-in-law, Louisa W. Lamberth; brothers-in-law, Rev. Thurman L. Pinnix, Sr., Linwood Pinnix (Lottie), Vernon Pinnix and Hashim Khateeb (Edith); a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
