1/24/2017

Let us remember with thanksgiving the life and ministry of Chanel Gatewood-Brisborn, who died on January 24, 2017. She was the daughter of retired clergy, Rev. Clifton E. Gatewood.

Rev. Denise Smartt Sears told me “…she was the one who looked after me at the Bishop's Convocation way before childcare was provided. She spent the last decade or so caring for her Dad…making sure he was present at every clergy meeting and annual conference. They were both in different nursing homes when she passed away.”

The homegoing service for Sister Chanel will be Monday, January 30, 2107 at 7:00pm at Mt. Calvary/St. Mark’s United Methodist Church, located at 49-55 Edgecombe Ave., New York, NY 10030. A wake will begin at 6:00pm at the church. Rev. Gatewood requests that clergy attending the funeral wear black robes with white stoles. For more information, contact Rev. Harold Morris at 646-372-7540.
