Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

On March 20, 1927, the Lord blessed the world with Noah Davis Magee Sr. to the loving parents of Alex and Willie Toomer Magee in Warrenton.

Being brought up in a Loving Christian home, he accepted the Lord into his life at an early age. He became a member of New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church, where he sung in the choir, worked on the Usher Board, the Deacon Board, and where ever the Lord saw fit to use him.

Upon graduating Franklinton High School, he was drafted into the U.S. Navy for World War II, at the drop of a hat. He also attended Aboment School in Hammond.

After returning home from the Navy, he met his better half, and fell in love with Jessie Lee Magee. They made their home in Cleveland, Ohio. He worked at White Motors for many years.

Noah leaves to cherish his precious memories: three sons, Noah (JuaTina) Magee Jr. of Virginia, Lawrence Magee of Cleveland, and Joseph Magee of Franklinton; three daughters, Lena Magee of Baton Rouge, Carolyn (Wendell) Coningham and Margie Magee, both of Cleveland; 15 grandchildren; a host of great-great-grandchildren; and two great-great-great-grandchildren — five generations of Noah Davis Magee.

Preceding Noah in death was one sister, Johnnie B. Johnson; and one brother, Linzie Magee.

Private Graveside Service will be at Toomer Cemetery.

Crain and Sons Funeral Home of Franklinton is in charge of arrangements. Sign the guestbook online at
