Obituary

"To Everything there is a season and time to every purpose under the heaven"

A TIME TO BE BORN

Mrs. Blanche Vernell Bradley Joe, the second of nine children, was born to the late Robert and Mary Samuel Bradley.

A TIME TO GROW

She was born and lived her first few years on the Mt. Lisbon-St. Charles road. Her early educational training was received at the Mt. Lisbon Church School. From that school she transferred to Dennis School in Bishopville, and then to Lincoln High School in Sumter, where she completed her high school training. She received her undergraduate and graduate school degrees from Allen University and South Carolina respectively. She received further training at Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.

A TIME TO WORSHIP

B.V., as she was affectionately known, accepted Christ at an early age and was a consistent Christian member of New Zion AME Church all of her life. She truly loved the church and found joy in giving dedicated service in whatever capacities she was placed to serve. She began as a Juvenile (now YPD'er) as a Cradle Roll School member and a Children's Choir member. As the years passed on, she became President of the Senior Choir, serving for almost half a century; working in the Missionary Society, reaching the status of Life Member; member of the Senior Steward Board; active member of the Lay Organization; Secretary of the Stewardess Department; Chair of no. 4 Stewardess Board; and for several years, was a member of the Finance, Budget, and Policy Committee.

A TIME TO SERVE

B.V.'s motto was a quote from the song writer who said "If I can help somebody as I pass along, then my living shall not be in vain." She tried to help by dedicating forty-one years of her life to the teaching of children in the public schools of Lee County. She furthered her help by serving on various Boards and in numerous organizations, some of which are:

Lee County Council on Aging
Lee County Disabilities and Special Needs
Cooperative Ministries
United Way
Lee County Chapter of the National Council of Negro Women
Marshal Chapter #239 OES
General Alumni Association of Allen University (GAAAU)
NAACP
Dennis Community Development Corporation-Lee County

A TIME TO LOVE

On March 4, 1947, B.V. was joined in holy matrimony to Issac Columbus Joe, the man whom she knew was worth waiting for until his return from military service. They love, cherished, and lived happily together for just short of seventy-one years until death parted them. This union was blessed with two loving sons, Issac Jr. and Bruce Bernard, who both preceded her in death.

A TIME TO MOURN

Blanche leaves behind one sister: Lilli Mae Mickens. She is leaving four grandchildren: Veronica, Sommer, Christopher and Alfie (Lina). She has three great-grandchildren, Auutumn, Grace, and Noah. She also leaves behind a host of nieces and nephews.

Square Deal Funeral Home would like to thank the Joe family for entrusting us with the final rites of their loved one, Ms. Blanche Vernell Bradley Joe.
