"Know that death is not an end, but a transition to a place free of pain and suffering." The word of God reminds us in 2nd Timothy 4:7-8: " I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing."

Elizabeth Teresa Proctor
On Friday, August 15, 2014, Elizabeth Teresa Proctor of
Mitchellville, MD, departed this life at the Anne Arundel Medical Center in
Annapolis, MD. Tea was born on November
6, 1922 to the late William Thomas and Mary Ethel Harley of Upper Marlboro, MD.
She married the late John Marsenia Proctor (Mott)over 70 years ago and from
this union six children were born. She lived in Mitchellville, MD from late 1940
until her death. Tea was educated at the Saint Mary’s Catholic School in
Upper Marlboro, MD. We all would marvel at her school report cards that were
all grades of A and served as an inspiration for us to do well in school. After
marriage she became a home maker and periodically worked part time at her
church rectory. At home she was the business manager and chief financial
officer as well as raising six children. Mott worked two jobs, but she
controlled the money to make sure that all of our needs were satisfied. One of
her greatest joys was having all of her children and their families come home
on Sundays and Holidays. All of her grandchildren knew where all of the sweets
were kept and were free to enjoy them. Outside of the joy that she got out of
seeing family and friends,she loved watching Tom Jones perform on TV and
performing her civic duty as a juror.She loved to wear beautiful clothes and
never left home without her makeup and hair perfectly groomed.
Left to remember her in fondest and loving memory are three
daughters Susie (Mack) Frye, Rosalie (Irving) Newman, Sheila (Richard) Wilson;
two sons Lemuel (Sandy) Proctor, Andre (Diane) Proctor and daughter in-law
Tonya Proctor; 12 grandchildren Dion Frye, Joseph Newman, Jr, Travis Proctor
