Irma Lee Pinder, born February 12, 1920 in Singer Island, Florida passed away on Friday, January 3, 2020. She was raised on 20th Street in Riviera Beach and was one of ten children of Livingston L. and Lillian Fox Pinder. She never married or had children of her own, but was a "second mother" to countless people.

She spent a life of service to her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. She attended the Church of God on 20th Street and was a founding member of Living Oaks Church in Palm Beach Gardens. She taught Sunday School, led worship and directed the choir. She played the accordion and the saxophone. She served her church and everyone she came into contact with. She cared for her parents and other family members during illnesses. Throughout her life she touched lives by prayer, song, good deeds and great food! (Banana puddin')

She worked as a seamstress at Lily Ruben, Jacobson's, Everglades Club, Tops and Bottoms and Martha's. Her motto was 'rich or poor, everyone is the same'. During retirement, she visited the "shut-ins" and was always available for counseling and prayer to loved ones.

She is preceded in death by her parents, all her siblings and their spouses, except for one sister, Eileen. She is survived by numerous relatives and friends. Those who were blessed to know her know..."I am blessed, I am blessed, I am blessed. Every day that I live, I am blessed. When I wake up in the morning 'til I lay my head to rest, I am blessed, I am blessed."

I am one of Sis Irma Lee's girls. I live in the Mts of NC but was raised in Riviera Bch FL. Sis Irma Lee was one who mentored me and helped build Christian character in me as well as so many others. She showed me Jesus' love and helped me to make a decision for Christ when I was 13 years old. Last time I was in FL, 3 yrs ago I went to see her and she said "There is one of my girls." We shared some fond memories. I will always remember her and I know that I am the Woman of God that I am today because she took the time to love and nurture a little hurting girl. All of Heaven is rejoicing over her home going. Love Ernestine
