About Annie B. Beckum


September 21, 1937 – November 11, 2011


Annie Beckum was a phenomenal woman and had nine children: five boys and four girls. Born in McComb, Mississippi, she married at an early age. Once she was old enough, she started a business owning her own tavern.

On the side, Annie was a seamstress, making clothing and other things to provide a good and comfortable living for her children. She was very independent, outgoing, and beautiful. She would always brighten up your day with that beautiful bright smile of hers when you were in her presence.

Annie was always looking out for people by giving them a place to stay. She would also help you when you’re in need, when no one else would help. Also, she would give words of encouragement by speaking the word of God. She would always have the right words to say to lift your spirit. When you felt like you wanted to give up, she would tell you to read your Bible and let go and let God. 

About Brenda Allen




Brenda lived a majestic life that moved swiftly. She went from playing hopscotch to a big career of a servant to all who crossed or was referred to her kingdom. Her tiny brown ears listened to unbroken rivers of sorrow, love, anger, hunger, laughter, joy, and pain that all awaited her to calm a world of chaos.

Brenda’s wisdom seduced the world; children, wives, husbands, politicians, professionals—all stood in line, a line that was infused with loudness that would disturb the world, but not Brenda.

She heard each of their words as they emptied out all the deep pain of disappointment. Brenda swallowed each word we said as she composts up our strength to have faith in the unseen and believe in our Master.
