Rev. Depayne Middleton-Doctor laid to rest Sunday

Reverend Depayne Middleton-Doctor.

Hundreds weathered the long line and the elements Sunday to pay tribute to Reverend Depayne Middleton-Doctor. Hundreds turned away as Mother Emanuel was not big enough to accommodate the overflowing crowd looking to honor the 49-year-old church shooting victim.

Family and friends remembered Middleton-Doctor as a ‘godly woman.’ She took up a membership with Emanuel AME earlier this year and wanted to be an AME minister like her father.

The mother of four retired a decade ago after being the Charleston County director of the block grant program, but recently had been working as a college admissions coordinator.
