A graveside service will be held for Mrs. Irene Bryant McGee at Goldonna Cemetery, 1215 N Goodwill St., Goldonna, LA 71031 on Friday September 2, 2022 at 11:00 a.m. Her grandson, Lonnie Scarborough will conduct the service.

Mrs. McGee celebrated her 102nd birthday on June 17 and went to be with her Lord on August 28, 2022. She was the daughter of Curlie Franklin and Iva Priscilla Bryant. She was postmaster at Goldonna Post Office for 36 years, where she lovingly served her patrons. In addition, she served as bookkeeper for a family owned business. She enjoyed worshiping and fellowship at Goldonna Baptist Church where she was a faithful choir member and taught Jr. girls.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Gordon McGee, her parents, a sister, three brothers and her son-in-law, Gilbert Scarborough. She is survived by her son, Larry McGee and wife, Sharon and her daughter, Marilyn Scarborough. She had five grandchildren, Larenda McGee, Leigh Ann Linder, Nathan Scarborough (Karen), Gina Holstead (Lee) and Lonnie Scarborough (Ginger); ten great grandchildren, Logan Thomas, Jackson McGee, Brodie Linder, Shelbie Linder, Clancy Scarborough (Brittany), Clay Scarborough, Justin Holstead (Anna), Katie Holstead Schoening (Joel), Lucas Scarborough (Taylor) and Graham Scarborough; three great-great grandchildren, Sutton Scarborough, Charlie Schoening and Addie Holstead also numerous nieces and nephews.

She cared deeply for her family who loved her in return. A favorite scripture verse was “Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10. A motto that she lived by to the fullest was “Live, Love and Laugh!” The family wants to thank the many friends who sent letters and cards and prayed for her. We appreciate her church family who were so attentive to her in the later years she was able to live in her home.

A special thanks to caregivers Rhonda, Crystal, Teresa, Peggy, Margaret, Sammie and Queen as well as the staff of Azalea Estates Assisted Living and the staff of The Guest House. She truly valued each of you.
