December 28, 1915 - February 20, 2007
Vergel and four of her five children on her 90th
birthday. (Levenda is not pictured)
Vergel Grubbs, widow of founding pastor of Faith
Tabernacle Church of God, Paul Grubbs, passed away
February 20, 2007. With great sadness, we
make this announcement of our loss.
Though she leaves a void in our hearts, we can't
help but think about the glorious celebration that
is taking place in Heaven as she is welcomed by
the Son of God, the angels and all the other
saints who have gone on before her. We can
imagine the reunion with her beloved husband who
preceded her, waiting for her homecoming.
We offer our prayers for strength and comfort to
all of her precious family.
Vergel's funeral was held at Faith Tabernacle
Church of God; 1606 Electric Street; Lincoln Park,
Michigan on Saturday, February 25, 11:00 AM.
John K Solosy Funeral Home was in charge.
Vergel's son, Rev. Jerry Grubbs, was officiating
minister with her grandchildren providing music
and singing. Jerry's wife, Lorinda, provided
the organ music and Vergel's daughter, Gloria,
sang and played piano. Christine Collins,
member at Faith Tabernacle, also sang.
Vergel's son-in-law, Fred Cornelius (husband of
Mary), did the eulogy. At one point, the platform was filled with
her grand/great-grandchildren singing and
playing music in her honor. An overflow
crowd was present to say their goodbyes to a grand
lady, matriarch of the church since 1954.
Interment was at Ferndale Cemetery at Riverview,
Vergel's favorite Bible verse: "Let not
your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe
also in me. In my Father's house are many
mansions; if it were so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go
and prepare a place for you, I will come again,
and receive you unto myself; that where I am,
there ye may be also" (John 14:1-3).
