Ainsworth, Larry - Pearl  
Larry L. Ainsworth Pearl Larry Lang Ainsworth, 73, was welcomed into the presence of his Savior on Thursday, March 26, 2015. Visitation is 5-8 pm Friday at Ott and Lee Funeral Home in Brandon and 9 am Saturday at Park Place Baptist Church in Pearl. Services are 10 am Saturday at Park Place Baptist Church with a 2 pm graveside at Beezer Cemetery in Raleigh. Larry was employed at Baptist Health Systems for 55 years, many of which he served as the supervisor of the blood bank. He was a member of the Gideons International and was an active member of Park Place Baptist Church where he served as a deacon, Bible study teacher, and enjoyed singing in the choir. As a graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi, he continued as a lifelong fan and supporter. His love for music, particularly Southern Gospel, and reading were passed on to his family. His greatest earthly love and legacy was his family, where he modeled the love and grace of God to his wife, children, and grandchildren. As a Christian, he entrusted his life and eternity with Jesus, whom he worked to live for and glorify at every opportunity. Larry's favorite scripture was, "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." Isaiah 40:31 Survivors include his wife, Marilyn Ainsworth of Pearl; son, Joel Ainsworth (Emily) of Hanahan, South Carolina; daughters, Lisa Mason of Pearl and Kelli Gordon (Preston) of Pelahatchie; grandson, Zachary Mason; step-grandchildren, Gage Gordon, Macy Gordon and Presley Gordon.

Artigues, Kenneth - Jackson  
Kenneth L. Artigues Jackson Kenneth Louis Artigues, 75, died on Tuesday, March 24th after a two year battle with cancer. Ken - known affectionately as Papa to his 16 grandchildren and Kenny to most everyone else - was a beloved brother, father, uncle, husband and friend. Born in New Orleans and raised in Bay St. Louis, Ken was the third of eight children born to Maurice and Eran Artigues. He was a graduate of St. Stanislaus High School and the University of New Orleans. He married Barbara "Bobbie" Ann Dirblun on December 16th, 1961 and, following a stint in the U.S. Army where he was stationed in Berlin, he embarked on a 30 year career with Sears Roebuck and Allstate Insurance in the Human Resources Dpt. The Artigues family lived in New Orleans, Vicksburg, Jackson, Smyrna, GA and Buffalo Grove, IL, accruing lifelong friends along the way. Kenny and his wife had four children - Teresa, Mark, Mike and Jeff - and he was actively involved in their schools, sports and personal lives (read "grandchildren"). He was a regular communicant at St. Richard Catholic Church where he actively participated in the R.E.A.C.H. program for Special Needs adults and helped start the Dollar-a-Month club to aid various ministries. He was a loyal booster for St. Joseph High School and a huge Mississippi State fan following his conversion from LSU the moment his son, Jeff, started his MSU football career. Upon retirement in 1995, Kenny began a 20 year ministry of volunteer work, particularly with Gleaners and Deliver Me Senior Services, recruiting many friends and family members along the way. In addition, he read for the Reading Service for the Visually Impaired, volunteered at the local Library to help seniors complete tax returns and gave blood regularly through United Blood Services - earning his ten gallon pin a few years ago. In 2014, he was awarded a Jefferson Volunteer Award by WJTV in recognition of his outstanding service to the community. He is also survived by his daughter, Teresa Pipper of Jackson and her husband, Mark Pipper; son Mark Artigues of Plano, TX and his wife, Kim; son Mike Artigues of McComb and his wife, Trisha and son Jeff Artigues of Starkville and his wife, Jennifer. He was particularly fond of his grandchildren, who include Lauren Vucovich of Santa Barbara, CA and Brandon Vucovich of Pensacola, FL; Jeffrey, Michael and Christopher Artigues of Plano, TX; Kenny Artigues most recently of Taipei, Taiwan, Annie, Matthew, Patrick, Aaron and Sean Artigues of McComb, MS and Olivia, Evelyn, Eliza, Benjamin and Dominic Artigues of Starkville, MS in addition to six living siblings and numerous nieces, nephews and friends. A memorial mass will be celebrated on Saturday, March 28th at St. Richard Catholic Church in Jackson at 10 A.M. with visitation beginning at 9 A.M. and a reception to follow in Foley Hall. Those attending the service are asked to bring a can of food or other non-perishable item for donation to Deliver Me Senior Services. In lieu of flowers, we ask that memorial gifts be made to Ken's favorite ministries: Deliver Me Senior Support Services, 1405 S. Gallatin St., Jackson, MS 39201 or Gleaners, Inc, 237 Briarwood Dr., Jackson, MS 39206
