"ALL day and ALL night, ANGELS are watching over the White and Kee Families"

"You are there when I am lonely, you are there when I need a friend, I take comfort in your word, when I get weary and I know you'll be there to the end. When it's all said and done and my race has been run, that's when your face will be the first face I want to see.."

A face that so many saw as soon as they graced the doors of Joppa Missionary Baptist Church as one of the Doorkeepers, job title has now been upgraded to Doorkeeper of the Kingdom. Doris White Kee passed peacefully in the comfort of her home surrounded by her devoted husband and beautiful daughters on Monday, April 12, 2021.

Mrs. Kee was the daughter of the late Walter White and Rose Mary Griffin White.

Doris was a proud member of Joppa Missionary Baptist Church, where she served on the Usher Board for a number of years.
