After his “granny” lived a rich, full life, gospel singer Earnest Pugh says goodbye
The grandmother of gospel recording artist Earnest Pugh has died. She was 99.
“I’m holding up just fine,” said the 43-year-old in a Facebook video after his paternal grandmother, Addie Mae Pugh, passed on.
A week ago, she celebrated her 99th birthday, then made her transition Wednesday, Oct. 21.
Graced with the gift of longevity, Addie Mae was born Oct. 15, 1916 in Arkansas.
She lived through the segregated times of the Woodrow Wilson administration and nearly two full terms of the first African-American president, Barack Obama, 100 years later.
Services honoring her life will be held Thursday, Oct. 29 at 12:00 p.m. at Gilfield Missionary Baptist Church, 8335 Pleasant Ridge Road, Arlington, TN 38002.
The funeral home is Jefferson Mortuary located at 7788 Church Street, Millington, TN 38053.
