|Josephine T. Alexander joined the family of the St. Peter United Methodist Church deceased members on September 28, 1991. She was born January 20, 1905. She became a member of the St. Peter United Methodist Church while the Rev. T.P. Norris was pastor. Prior to her marriage to the late Reverend King G. Alexander, Sr., she was a Roman Catholic.
Mrs. Alexander was dedicated to her faith, serving as a steward of the United Methodist Women, Bible and Prayer member.
She was preceded in death not only by her husband but also her parents, one brother, three sisters, two sons and two daughters. Five sons, seven daughters, 99 grandchildren, 245 great grandchildren and 136 great-great grandchildren survive her.
Her family and church will always hold her memory. Even though we know death is a certainty, the shocking reality of a sudden death tends to remind us that we know not the time when the soul shall be required by Thee.
This is what sister Alexander was prepared for. She always reminded the church not to worry about her because she had a determined mind that was wrapped up in Jesus . She was just waiting on Him and His love is sufficient.
