Charlotte, NC – If you know Pastor John P. Kee, there were times when you may have heard him talk about his Grandmother, Mrs. Ethel G. Shannon.  He would often say, “I truly loved her” and made his feelings known to anyone who would listen!  During one concert, Pastor John encouraged everyone and many of his industry friends to send his grandmother a birthday card. Many did and Pastor John was thrilled.

Over the weekend, Pastor John P.Kee’s beloved grandmother made her transition to be with the Lord.  Mrs. Ethel G. Shannon, John’s maternal grandmother, played a very pivotal role in his upbringing and remained a consistent source of spiritual guidance in his life.

Pastor Kee’s said, “Heaven is rejoicing, the angels are singing and the saints are welcoming her home.”  These were his comments after his grandmother died on Friday night “@ exactly 8p.m.”  Pastor Kee says that he and his family are now preparing for a celebration.

Currently homegoing services for Charlotte, NC and Durham, NC are pending.  Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Fisher Funeral Parlor, 3137 Fayetteville Street, Durham, NC 27707.  (919) 682-3276.

May we all continue to keep Pastor Kee and his family in prayer.
