  • They have jobs. They take care of their children and families. They maintain their households. They volunteer in their communities. And they still make time to serve their churches.
    On Saturday, several women from Oneida and Herkimer counties once again will be honored at the sixth annual Women of Worship Awards’ luncheon at noon at Harts Hill Inn in Whitesboro.
    “These are women who are on the radar and have their hands full but still make every sacrifice to help those in need,” said Susan Woods, award creator and marketing consultant of Success Strategies in Utica.
    The awards are named after five biblical women and two modern day women.
    There are also certificates of excellence awarded.
    The 2013 Women of Worship honorees are:
    * The Rahab Award: Barbara T. Groves of Grace Episcopal Church, Utica.
    * The Deborah Award: Vera Noxon of Rome First Presbyterian.
    * The Hannah Award: Judy Pucillo of Redeemer Church, Utica.
    * The Ruth Award: Veronica Nevith of New Bethel Missionary Baptist Church, Utica
    * The Esther Award: Carolann Triunfo Thomas of St. Basil's Parish, Bridgewater.
    * The Dorothy Fields Jackson Award: Carol Klausner of Clinton United Methodist, Clinton.
    * The Lucille E. Fields Award: Kathleen Haldenwang of St. Peter's Lutheran, Verona.
    * The Mary & Martha Award: HRC Women's Ministries of Herkimer Reformed Church, Herkimer.
    The 2013 Certificate of Excellence recipients are:
    * Miriam Marriott, The Federated Church, West Winfield.
    * Lottie Mims, Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church, Utica.
    * Jessie Mae Rudley, St. Matthew's Temple, Utica.
    “This year, honorees range in age from early 30s to close to 80,” Woods said. “They are the kind of women who never think of getting anything in return for what they do.”
    Reservations can be made for $20 per person or $160 for a table of eight. They can be purchased by calling 525-9792.
