Tribute

Gertrude Barber Raines, 101, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, December 6, 2023, at Mary Washington Hospital surrounded by family. 

Gertrude was born on May 5, 1922, to Charles and Carrie Barber, who lived in the Stafford Store area, which is now the western part of Marine Corps Base, Quantico. Gertrude married William L. “Billy” Raines in 1946. Both were lifelong residents of Stafford County and members of Ramoth Baptist Church. Gertrude was a very loving and caring person to anyone she met, always willing to go the extra mile for family and friends.

Gertrude is survived by her two sons, Dennis (Eileen) and Danny (Rosina); six grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren, who were always around for Mammie’s special pound cake; and several nieces and nephews.

Gertrude was predeceased by her parents, Charles, Sr. and Carrie; beloved husband of 50 years, “Billy”; sisters Louise, Cleo, Ruth, and Judy; brothers Charles, Jr. and Sidney; and grandson, Brandon, all of Stafford County.

A special thanks to Brenda Butler, Dr. McAllister, the 4-South nurses and CNAs at Mary Washington Hospital, and the Commonwealth Senior Assisted Living folks for all their love, kindness, and friendship they gave to our mother. 

We celebrate Mom’s life because we know she is with our Heavenly Father, who will say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, December 14, 2023, Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg. A funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, December 15, at the funeral home chapel. Interment will follow in Sunset Memorial Gardens.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you make a donation to your favorite charity.
