Obituary of Earlda Ruth Cole

It is with saddened hearts that we inform you of the passing of our beloved mom, Earlda Ruth Cole, who was welcomed into the arms of Jesus on January 29, 2024. She was 99 years young. Earlda was an amazing mom who was always there for her family, or anyone whom she knew to be in need. Earlda was born in Covina, CA, on September 29, 1924. She was raised in La Puente, CA, where she attended school and graduated from La Puente High School. She was preceded in death by her parents; three brothers; one sister; and the love of her life, Jay Cole, whom she met in Southern California and were later married in Yuma, Arizona, February 13, 1943, a loving relationship that lasted for 45 years until Jay's death in 1988. After living in Southern California, for a few years, they moved to Live Oak, CA, in 1958, where they raised three children. One of their joys was spending time at their cabin that was located close to the Chester area. A favorite memory in her later years, was when her niece took her to Catalina Island when she was only 90. Earlda was also a faithful member of The father's House church in Live Oak, CA, for over 65 years. While attending there, she held numerous leadership positions such as the Women's Ministry leader, Wedding Coordinator, Missionette's leader...a program designed for the young girls in the church. The women's prison ministry held a special place in her heart as she shared God's love to those needing to hear the good news. Her love for Jesus was evident in her willingness to serve others. This life may have ended here...but her new one just began as she is now re-united with Jesus and Jay Jay. She is survived by her two sons: Jerry Cole of Live Oak, CA, Jimmy Cole (Lorrie) of Marysville, CA; one daughter, Debbie Rogers (Ron) of Live Oak, CA; three grandchildren: Jeff Cole, Denise Moore (David), and Brian Eldridge (Kim); five great-grandchildren: three great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.
