Lillie A. Ross, "the mother of the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church," stood at the altar yesterday and sang one of her favorite hymns, "Discipleship and Service."Her 90-year-old voice was indistinguishable from the dozens of others rising from the pews before her."Come, labor on," they sang. "No time for rest, till glows the western sky. Till the long shadows o'er our pathway lie, and a glad sound comes with the setting sun. Well done. Well done. Amen."They came yesterday then to celebrate Miss Lillie -- and everyone calls her that -- and her labor in their church, in their schools, in their neighborhood, in their city.

Catherine L. Hayley filled many roles during her more than 40 years at Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, including deacon, pianist, secretary and loyal member.But perhaps the role she filled best was "pastor's keeper." If the Rev. Curtis A. Jones' voice was coarse, she'd have throat lozenges; if his robe was frayed, she'd let him know."She stayed on me about a number of things but always in a loving way," Mr. Jones said. "And she didn't mince words, she loved to mix it up."Mrs. Hayley, who died Sundayof cancer at Sinai Hospital at 71, felt the pastor often spent too much time greeting parishioners after church, instead of going straight to the post-service snack.
