Sentimental Saturday: Saint Arby Washington - Thompson

The headstone of Saint Arby Washington - Thompson at the Mt. Sinai Baptist Church in Sibley, Mississippi. Saint Arby was the second child born to Will and Alice (Rounds) Washington. St. Arby was raised on Ben's Corner with her nine brothers and sisters. She married James Thompson (Calvin and Sarah) in 1939. She passed away from complications of a stroke on May 13, 1980. She left behind her spouse of nearly 40 years, six daughters and ten grandchildren. A vibrant life ended far too soon.
