The passing of Sister Virgie on 06/24/2012 By Ronnie Mallow

Sis. Virgie was born on September 7, 1921 to Sis. Lillian and Elder W. H. (Harl) Lee. Her father, had been ordained to the ministry a little less than a year before she was born. In 1940, Elder W. H. Lee would be blessed to baptize a young man named Charles Sandage at the Harmony Primitive Baptist Church in Donaldson, Arkansas. In fact, Elder Lee was baptizing his future son-in-law. In 1942, Sis. Virgie married the love of her life, Elder Charles Sandage and the Lord has blessed their walk together for 70 years. From the day she was born, until her passing this day – she was to understand the importance and burden of being the wife of a minister. In this, she was blessed above measure. She was an example to all and may the Lord bless us to remember her strength, love and compassion during her walk, along side her beloved husband, Elder Charles.
