Obituary for Rita S. Hoskins

RITA S. HOSKINS, 75, of Springfield went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, March 17, 2018. She was born on November 20, 1942, in Williamson, West Virginia, the daughter of Johnny Glenn and Annabelle (Maynard) Scott. Rita loved her Lord, her family, and her grandchildren. She was an outstanding wife and mother. As a pastor’s wife, Rita led Bible studies, played piano, led choir, and encouraged everyone she served. She was an elementary school teacher for many years and taught numerous piano students. Rita had an exceptional gift to motivate others to realize their gifts and use them for the Lord through a gentle word of encouragement or her contagious smile. She loved music and continued to minister by playing the piano often for her friends and sharing Jesus with others. She was gracious and a faithful servant whether life brought trials or joys. Survivors include one daughter, Beth (Craig) Jarvis of Bartlett, Illinois; two sons, Stephen (Meredith) Hoskins of Finleyville, Pennsylvania and David (Aimee) Hoskins of Urbana, Ohio; mother, Annabelle Blackburn of Springfield, Ohio and 11 cherished grandchildren, Jonah, Abigail, Hannah, Nathan, Zachary, Karis, Lauren, Rebekah, Amelia, Julianne and Meghan. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 35 years, Rev. John H. Hoskins and her father, Johnny Glenn Scott. A gathering of family and friends will be held on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 from 4 to 6 pm in the Southgate Baptist Church, 2111 S. Center Blvd., Springfield. A celebration of Rita’s life will begin at 6 pm in the church with Pastor Bobby Hile officiating. Graveside services will be held on Wednesday at 1:30 pm in the Cunningham Memorial Park, St Albans, West Virginia followed by a time of remembrance at Faith Missionary Baptist Church, 701 W. MacCorkle Ave. St Albans, West Virginia
