God so Loved the World that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life. John 3:16 Evangelist Mary M Rowell was born on November 20,1930, in Scranton, South Carolina to the late Deacon Sampson and Sarah Dixon. She was the oldest of ten children. Mother Mary Rowell entered eternal rest on January 29,2024. She was a member of Gresham Chapel Freewill Baptist Church and fellowshipped with Tabernacle A.M.E Church. She gave her life to the Lord at an early age and as many of you know, she loved to serve the Lord. She became a Evangelist in 1976. She served in several capacities through the years such as the President of her group, which was The Shepherds of Joy. She attended church every Sunday morning and was at many different singing programs every Sunday evening. Her very favorite song she always loved to sing was, “If a Robin Can Say Thank You, You Can Do It Too.” On Labor Day of 1949, she married the love of her life Melton Rowell.
