Thurajene Thornsbury

It is with a broken heart of those whom mom left behind, yet so happy that her race is won and she’s resting in the arms of Jesus, that we write the obituary of our precious mother. Proverbs 31:10 “Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.” This verse is so true of our dear mommy.

Thurajene (Smith) Thornsbury, 86, of Canada, was born on July 14, 1934, and departed this life peacefully at home on Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020, surrounded by her loving children and grandson, Ben. Mom was the wife of the late Elder Berlin Thornsbury, whom she was married to for over 50 years, and the oldest daughter of the late William Goble and Verna (Bogar) Smith.  

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by someone whom she thought of as a son and who knew her as a mother, Walter Dean Bogar. She was also preceded in death by her daughter-in-law, Veronica (Justice) Thornsbury; her  granddaughters, Haley Thornsbury and Jeannie Lynn Thornsbury; and her three brothers, William Chester, Glen and Thomas Clinton Smith.

She was a faithful member of the Dix Fork Old Regular Baptist Church for over 40 years and attended regularly until her sickness prevented her from doing so.

She is survived by her children whom she loved dearly and from whom that love was returned, Ivan Neil (Mary), James Gerald (Susie), Barbara Newsome (Jerome), Debbie Bogar, Lesa Justice (Mark), Ressia Thornsbury (with whom she made her home), Tammy Dotson (Adam) and Troy Thornsbury. Proverbs 31:28, “Her children arise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.” Also left behind to cherish her memory are 13 grandchildren (many of whom she helped raise) and 12 great-grandchildren. Additionally, she is survived by her only sister, Jaqueline Laborda, and her youngest brother, Clifford Douglas Smith.

Mom will be greatly missed and forever remembered. Our hearts are forever broken. John 5:24 “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2020, at Dix Fork Old Regular Baptist Church with ministers of the church officiating. Burial will follow at the Thornsbury Family Cemetery, Dix Fork, with family members serving as pallbearers.

Visitation will be held at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 15, at the R.E. Rogers Funeral Home Chapel with special services beginning at 7 p.m. with corresponding ministers of the Old Regular Baptist Church officiating. Arrangements are under the direction of the R.E. Rogers Funeral Home of Belfry.
