Elder Maggie M. Osborne, 83, entered into eternal rest on Friday, October 11, 2013 at Tuomey Healthcare System, Sumter. Born on October 27, 1929 to her loving parents, the late Rev. T. S. Jasper and Mrs. Fannie Sanders Jasper.
Elder Osborne was Saved, Sanctified and filled with the gift of the precious Holy Ghost. She loved the Lord with all her heart and loved to pray and pray for others and give God glory no matter what state her health was in. She simply and unequivocally loved the Lord, and being in her presence for even five minutes you knew that! Elder Osborne was a member of Shubach World Cathedral in Sumter, under the Leadership of her special niece, Dr. TL Penny. She was formerly a member of Holy City Center of Love, as well as assistant pastor, under the leadership of Apostle Callie M. Jasper of Brooklyn, NY.
Everybody loved “Aunt Maggie”. She was the Matriarch of the family. You couldn’t meet her and not love her, even affectionately called “Aunt Maggie” by everyone. She could fill any void that anyone had. She was a mother, grandmother, auntie, friend, confidante, whatever you needed her to be, Aunt Maggie was just that!

Williams (Joshua) of Lemoore, California; three very special nieces, Dr. TL (Tyra) Penny and Cashayna N.

Council; four sisters-in-law, Linda Jasper of NY, Pastor Linda Jasper of Sumter; Geneva Jasper, Felicia Jasper, Apostle Callie Jasper, Rosadine Jasper; two aunts, Ruth Sanders and Bessie Nelson; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and special friends.
