      AVIS IONE RAINES
      Avis Ione Raines, 88, of Marysville died peacefully Sunday, Dec. 15,
      2002, at her home surrounded by her family following a brief illness.
      A graduate of Cottageville High School in Cottageville, W.Va., she
      received her teaching certificate from Salem College in Salem, W.Va.,
      where she taught school in a one-room schoolhouse before moving to Ohio.
      She took a job as a matron at the Ohio Reformatory for Women in 1964 and
      retired as a corrections supervisor in 1976 but continued with special
      duty assignments for many years.
      She was an avid reader, worked countless crossword puzzles and enjoyed
      writing letters, working in the yard and cooking. She and her husband
      were well-known for the love and compassion given to all those who lived
      in and passed through their Mulberry Street neighborhood. She devoted
      her entire life to her husband and to raising her children, later
      enjoying time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her
      creed was that example is not the main thing in influencing others, it
      is the only thing.
      She was a member of the Marysville United Methodist Church since 1947, a
      member of the Puritan Circle of Kings Daughters and Sons and American
      Legion Post 79 Auxiliary.
      She was born May 12, 1914, at home in Jackson County, W.Va., to the late
      Russell and Clara Sayre Baker and was predeceased by her first husband,
      Sam Balch who was killed in World War II; a grandson, Jason Lusson; two
      brothers, Hal and Chester Baker; and a sister, Iris Baker.
      She is survived by her husband, Lawrence Raines whom she married Jan.
      10, 1947, at the Marysville First United Methodist Church; a son, Max
      Raines of Lancaster; a daughter, Marilyn Raines of Marysville; three
      grandchildren, Charity (Chad) Ritchey and Hesper (Brett) Stover of
      Lancaster and Nick Lusson of California; five great-grandchildren,
      Cameron, Dominic, Paige, Max and Emma Iris; two sisters, Lila Casto and
      Ann (Raymond) Skeen; and many special friends whose lives she touched.
      Funeral services will be held at 3 p.m. Thursday at the Ingram Funeral
      Home where friends may call from noon until the time of the service. The
      Rev. Dick Tuller will officiate.
      Memorial contributions may be made to Loving Care Hospice, 113 S. Main
      St., Marysville, or in care of the funeral home.
