Rev/ Archie S. Temony, Presiding

Mrs. Sarah Elizabeth Sumpter, was born April 30, 1935, in Clarendon County, to the late Gippy Richardson and Lillie Mae Richardson. She departed this earth to join her Heavenly Father, who was the head of her life, on Friday, April 3, 2020.

She received her formal education in the public schools of Clarendon County. “Red Gal”, as she was affectionately called was raised in a Christian home; a home where Christ was the head of the household.

Sarah moved to New York at an early age with three of her loving children, Robert, Henry, and Ruth Ann, and her loving husband, Nathaniel Sumpter. As years passed, she was blessed with two more children — Nora and Nathan.

In the midst of her life, Sarah found Christ in a place she called her second home — The New Move of God Pentecostal Church with the Pastor Marie Cole Kendley.

After years of worship, Sarah took on the title of Minister and became known as Minister Sarah Sumpter.

Sarah leaves her memories to be cherished with five children — Robert (Denise) Sumpter, Henry Sumpter, Ruth Ann Sumpter, Nathan Sumpter, and Nora Sumpter Hokett; one sister, Dorothy Parson; one sister-in-law, Lula Mae Richardson; five grandchildren — Janine Sumpter, Taisheena Hokett, Robbie Hokett, Destiny Thorne and Danielle Monroe; two great-grandchildren — Zarriah Balzeigler and Genesis Battle; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives.
