NEWPORT NEWS - Mary Elizabeth Capps Michie died on September 24 at the age of 97.
She was born on Castle Street in Wilmington, NC. Some of her fondest memories were of her childhood there and on the sound at Carolina Beach.

She was pre-deceased by her husband, James C. Michie, Jr., her parents Edward S. and Lula Mae Capps, her brothers John, Edward (Pete) and Richard, her sisters Nellie Rae Rouse and Lula Mae McDonald Davis.

Mary worked for many years for Reliable Stores in Newport News, first at Shaw's and later at Barclay's Jewelers. During those years she also served as a Girl Scout leader and director of the Girl Scout Camp on the grounds of the Mariners' Museum. After retirement, she and her husband managed Dublfun Campground on the Rappahannock River in Jamaica, VA.

She is survived by her son Jimmie and wife Trudy, grandchildren Scott Michie and Claire Nolte and husband Tim, great-granddaughter Alexandra Nolte, niece Alice Morgan, and nephews, Jim, Tom, Dick and Ed Capps.





The family is grateful for the friendship of neighbor Mrs. Faye Miller and the dedicated care Mary received at James River Convalescent Center.

A simple graveside service will take place at Bellamy United Methodist Church located at 4870 Chestnut Fork Rd., Gloucester, at 1:30PM on Saturday October 8th.

Servant of God, Well Done!

Words by Charles Wesley (28 Dec 1707 - 29 Mar 1788)

Music by George J. Elvey (27 Mar 1816 - 09 Dec 1893)

(The Methodist Hymnal, 1966, #288)

Wesley wrote this hymn in 1770 on the occasion of the death of clergyman George White.
Elvey's tune, "Diademata", has been set to several other hymns, notably "Crown Him with Many Thorns" and "Soldiers of Christ, Arise".

 Servant of God, well done!
Thy glorious warfare’s past;
The battle’s fought, the race is won,
And thou art crowned at last.

With saints enthroned on high,
Thou dost thy Lord proclaim,
And still to God salvation cry,
Salvation to the Lamb!

O happy, happy soul!
In ecstasies of praise,
Long as eternal ages roll,
Thou seest Thy Savior’s face.

Redeemed from earth and pain,
Ah! when shall we ascend,
And all in Jesus’ presence reign
With our translated friend?
