Mona Ann Legg

On December 17, 2013, God sent his angels to take Mona Ann Legg to her home in Glory.

Mona was born on September 4, 1932m in Fayette County, W.Va. Most of her days were spent on Saturday Road, where she was cherished by her family and community.

Mona was a loyal daughter and a cherished wife. She was a loving and beloved Mother and Grandmother. She was a farmer, gardener, cook, homemaker and musician. Her hard-working calloused, beautiful hands were never idle. Mona was a longtime, honored member of Horseshoe Baptist Church and she loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Today, Mona is walking the streets of Heaven with her parents, Herb and Muriel Atha, brothers, Don, Herb and Charlie; sisters, Libby and Susie; her cherished husband Buz, her infant twin sons, Herb and Howard, her beloved son, Gregory, and her precious great-grandson, Jack Redin.

Mona leaves behind a family who anxiously waits to join her where pain and sorrow are banished, night is vanquished and sin and death have been defeated.

That family includes brother Bob Atha and sister Linda, sons, Harold “Buzzy” and wife Betty Legg, Bradley and wife Julie Legg; daughters, Tammy and husband Tom Blake, Darlene Cole, daughter-in-law, Sophia Legg. Grandsons, Jason and wife Crystal Blake, Brandon Cole, Bradley Legg Jr. Granddaughters, April and husband Lonnie Redin, Jill Blake, Mandy and husband, John Conger, Melissa and husband Billy Shirley, Haley Legg, Rebecca Legg, Jasmine Legg. Great-grandchildren, Shyla Blake, Lydia Redin, Elijah Conger, Mona Conger, Izzy Blake, Cyrus Taylor and Max Shirley.

Mona’s family will miss her greatly but their mourning will only last for a night, for Mona’s suffering has ended and her days of eternal joy have begun.
