March 11, 1932 - April 13, 2019
Sis. Annie Lee Magee was born March 11, 1932 in Bogalusa, La. to the late Lorena Bolton Jackson and Andrew Jackson. She was married to the late Carl Magee and to this union six children were born. She was truly the world’s greatest mother. Her emphasis on education was evidenced by her attendance to night school to obtain her GED. She has truly set a solid foundation for future generations to obtain an education and wealth, while maintaining humility.
We know that a beautiful Angel has left this place called earth and walked into the arms of Jesus. A light will always shine because of the legacy that she has left behind. She will wake up singing, “I woke up with my mind stayed on Jesus, I am walking and talking with my mind on the Lord.”
Mother had a special kind of brightness and was a great woman of God. She loved the Lord and encouraged her family by saying “No matter what storms you face, stay committed to God and he will see you through.” “Be sold out for Jesus Christ.” “My God will supply all your needs.” “The hand of God will make a way out of no way.”
Mother was a caring prayer warrior, and an advocate for her children and grandchildren. She weathered the storms in her life in spite of life not being crystal stairs.
We will miss her beautiful sparkle. We will truly miss her many attributes that made her a priceless treasure and a woman of grace. Mother wore the fragrance of love very well. She served faithfully in the church as Past President of the WMS, Stewardess Board II, Trustee, Class Leader, Lay, choir member and a faithful member of the Anointed Word Outreach Ministry.
To know mother was to love her. She was kind, generous, and sincere. Mother was strong in her faith in God and vivacious with her humor. Her courage and strength were an inspiration to so many but especially her family. She was grateful for the many blessings in her life. She often said Family is the best connection you can have. Hold on to your Faith! She leaves behind a void in the lives of all she touched in her family and community.
Her eternal home is with Jesus, where the streets are paved with gold. Her life here on earth was golden.
She was preceded in death by her mother the late Lorena Bolton Jackson and father Andrew Jackson, Sisters Ora Lee Fordham, Ida Mae Curtis, Nellie Cameron, and a Brother Charles Peters. Favorite Cousins: The Late Rev. Louis Brown Jr. and The Late Robert Adams. Sis Annie Lee Magee was encouraged by Psalm 105:4 to look to the Lord and his strength, seek his face always.
She leaves behind to cherish her memories her six children: Evangelist Mary (Rev. Larry) Lucas, Carl Magee, Edward Magee, Linda Hillery, Brenda Brown (Rodney) and Michael Magee, two grandchildren she reared Leekiba Gholar and Breal Hillery, one sister Josie T. Vaughn of Baton Rouge, La, 20 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren and 7 great-great grand- children. Special nieces: Mary Winn, Rev. Louise Fordham, Devotion Cameron, Diane Cameron, Eloise Peters, Antoinette Peters, and Michelle Alexander. Nephews: Wesley Cameron, Larry Cameron, Richard Curtis, Vincent Winn. Special adopted daughters: Sis. Charlotte Robinson, Brenda Burris, Tonyah Jefferson, Nelda Redmond and a host of other relatives and friends.
