Mother Syble White McGee was born August 26, 1920 in Greenville, Texas to Charles and Hattie White. Born to this union were five girls and five boys. Mother spent her childhood in Wichita Falls, Texas where she attended Holland Elementary and Booker T. Washington Junior and Senior High School. She moved to Kansas in 1941 where she later married Elder Earl Sanders (deceased). They moved to Garden City, Kansas where they started Riverside District C.O.G.I.C and where she received her nursing license in 1962. She worked at the hospital, nursing homes, and also as a private nurse. After the passing of Elder Sanders she later met and married Elder Charles McGee, and they moved to Hutchinson, Kansas. She became First Lady of McGee Chapel C.O.G.I.C. Mother was a loving wife and remained a faithful member of McGee Chapel after his passing. Mother Syble White McGee had many talents. She was a hairdresser, taught Sunday school, seamstress, and a choir director. Mother Syble McGee loved to go fishing whenever she could. Mother McGee was appointed District Missionary in the Wichita District under the leadership of Overseer James Watson Jr. where she faithfully served for many years until she felt it was time to pass the torch which was passed to Mother Arceola Fields. Mother still holds the position as District Missionary Emeritus in the now St. James District C.O.G.I.C under Supt. Herman Hicks. She served on the Mothers Board, YWCC teacher, Bible Band president, and anniversary committee at her local church, Foundation of Life Ministries Bishop Melvin L. Watson. She will be greatly missed in the State, District, and local for her many years of service and her great love for the church.
Mother is preceded in death by her parents Charles and Hattie White, her 9 siblings, husband Elder Charles McGee, daughter Earlene Sanders, grandson Ahmed Sanders, Deaconess Claudia Hawthorn, and Bishop Melvin Watson.
Mother leaves to cherish her memories daughter Ruby Bowman of Chicago IL, grandchildren, great grandchildren; God daughter Sharon Hines; her extended family; the entire Logan family, and caregiver Pat Starks. We now say "See you later Mother, until we meet again".
