Her most active role was as President of the Women's Missionary Union at Alta Woods Baptist Church. Under her leadership, the WMU was active in Baptist life statewide in missions' education and financial support of Southern Baptist missionaries in the US and abroad. Mrs. Rives is survived by her husband of 63 years, W. B. Rives; her children, Steve Rives and his wife Sue of Brandon, Cindy Coon and her husband Mark of Ridgeland, and Lisa Leavell and her husband Roland of Jackson; as well as her seven grandchildren and their spouses, Sarah Rives Otts and her husband Jason of St. Augustine, Florida, Jenni Rives Robinson and her husband J.D. of Raymond, Dan and Andrea Rives of Raymond, Anne Coon Albritton and her husband Michael of Canton, John Mark and Sharon Coon of Canton, Lucy Leavell and Ro Leavell of Jackson.
