Sister Audrey Lee Ferebee, 68, departed this life in the early morning hours of Monday, August 01, 2022, with her foster mother, Janice Cuffee at her side. She succumbed to her illness after a long courageous battle. Audrey was born on October 1, 1953, as the only child, to the late Superintendent Solomon and District Missionary Hazel Ferebee.
Audrey grew up on Sea Street in the prominent Seatack area of Virginia Beach and was educated in the Virginia Beach public school system. She gave her life to the Lord at a very early age. She was reared in the admonition of the Lord and raised in Bethlehem COGIC, Chesapeake, VA under the tutelage of her father, who was the pastor, Superintendent Solomon Ferebee and her mother, First Lady District Missionary Hazel Ferebee. Just being saved wasn’t enough for Audrey; she would often say, “I want more Jesus!”
After the demise of her parents, Minister Jerry & Barbara Wilson became her legal guardians. She then became a member of St. Stephens COGIC, Virginia Beach, VA and served for 15 years under the leadership of the late Bishop Ted Thomas, Sr. In 2016, due to unforeseen circumstances, Missionary Janice Cuffee became her foster parent, and Sister Audrey served a short tenure as a member of the Great Joy Mission of Deliverance Church in Chesapeake, VA under Pastor Jeffrey Johnson.
Audrey was very soft spoken, had a huge smile and a beautiful kind spirit. She loved to sing, listen to music, and color in her spare time. Audrey loved the Lord and was faithful in serving Him. She was very vivacious in playing her maracas and tambourine in many worship services. Nobody could play like Audrey! She was anointed.
Audrey was preceded in death by her father, Superintendent Solomon Ferebee; mother, District Missionary Hazel Ferebee; aunt, Georgia Knox and uncle, Tommy Lamb.
Audrey leaves to cherish her precious memories, her guardians, Minister Jerry, Barbara Wilson; foster parent, Missionary Janice Cuffee & family; God-brother, Pastor Frederick Edmonds Sr.; God-sister, Missionary Katrina Smith and a host of church families and friends.
Audrey was well-known and loved by many in the South Norfolk District, Virginia Beach District and the State of Virginia, Jurisdiction #1.....She will be truly be missed.
