Marjorie Mingo Locke

Marjorie Mingo Locke born June 5, 1928 in Miami, Florida and joined her Savior Jesus Christ and began celebrating with family and loved ones in heaven on March 6, 2021.
Mrs. Locke loved her family and was a supportive and faithful wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She deeply loved and cared for her husband, Lyman during their 57 years of marriage together. She prayed, cooked, and gave advice regularly to her son and daughter in law, Ron and Carol. She prayed without ceasing for her daughter Elizabeth “Betty” and her eleven grandchildren, her great grandchild, nieces, and nephews.
Her love for family was without question. But even more important to her was her faith in Christ. She was a life-long devoted follower of His. One of her favorite scriptures was Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Mrs. Locke was very active in church ministries. Whether it was playing the piano for services, teaching a Sunday School class, cooking meals for fellowships or visiting shut ins she loved to serve. She had a great love for her First Baptist Church Sunday School class and missionary class and all the lovely ladies that shared their lives with her.
Mrs. Locke was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Lyman E. Locke, brothers George and Harold Mingo, sister Gloria Rabey, Marguerite Irwin, Elizabeth “Betty” Mingo, Millicent Doris Svetlik, and Patreccia Leach.
