On Tuesday, September 17, 2013, the Great Almighty God dispatched an angel to bring home the soul of our dearly beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother and Sister. St. Dorothy Mae Huff, a Norfolk native, was born to the late Walter Swift and Dorothy McDonald on Feb. 12, 1933. She attended Norfolk Public Schools and graduated from Booker T. Washington High School. St. Huff was joined in holy matrimony in 1952 to the late Apostle Roosevelt Huff and to that union was born eight children. Her dear Grandmother, Sister Bertha Crocker ensured that Mom was an active member in all phases of the United House of Prayer. She was a part of the Western Girls auxiliary, choirs, Sunday School Scholar, and currently an Adult Usher. St. Huff was baptized with the Holy Ghost in 1950. She believed in praising God to the highest and reared her children to do the same. She loved the United House of Prayer and all of our Leaders serving faithfully until she became disabled. “Ma,” as she was affectionately called, was a loving and supportive Mother and Grandmother to many. St. Huff found so much enjoyment as a “Day Care Provider” to countless children in the United House of Prayer and elsewhere. She will be dearly missed and we shall forever retain a special place in our hearts for her. St. Huff was predeceased by her loving husband, Apostle Roosevelt Huff, Sr. She leaves to cherish precious memories; four sons, Roosevelt Huff Jr. (Gail), Elder Maurice Huff (Jerilyn), Larry and Damien; four daughters, Valencia Brown (Clifford), Beverly Vann (Calvin), Carolyn Atkins (Robert), and Denise Enoch; five sisters, three brothers, a stepmother…Mable Swift; twelve grandchildren, eight great grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
