Reflections of
Madge Louise Kinsey Cuffee
On Friday, May 15, 2020 the Old Ship of Zion pulled into Port Beachmont, Pier 2719 and Madge Louise Kinsey Cuffee quietly walked up the gangplank. Awaiting her arrival were her parents, Jeremiah and Catherine Sawyer Kinsey; siblings, Alexander Kinsey, Kathleen Kinsey Howell, Jessie “Boots” Kinsey and George “Jack” Kinsey; niece, Joyce Kinsey Hollis and her beloved husband, Willie Reginal Cuffee.
Next Port of Call… Heaven.
Continuing on their earthly journeys are daughter, Willie Louise Wright; granddaughter, Danielle Myers (George); great -granddaughter, Serena A. Myers; niece, Phyllis Chapman; great niece, Danita Reid Jackson (Toronto); great-great niece Tiana Jackson; great great-nephews Jamaur and Joron Jackson; great - great - great niece and nephew, Ta’Nyia and Joseph and one sister- in-law, Lossie B. Kinsey.
In her journey, Madge or ‘SUK’ was always a beacon of light. She never met a stranger and her generosity and kindness were boundless. She was the family griot. For 35 years she taught and nurtured thousands of children in the Chesapeake School System before her retirement in 1983. She was a graduate of Elizabeth City State College Class of 1942. She was Miss Alumni 1967.
She was a past member of the ECSU Alumni Association and was active in the Southside Senior Club.
A devout Christian, she joined Pilgrim Journey African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church at the age of eleven. She held many positions including Deaconess Emeritus, Trustee and Choir Member.
Port of Call… Heaven.
Upon arrival Madge was greeted by her Lord and Savior and escorted down the gangplank.
Her hand in His; as she had placed it there, all of her life.

%o the family of Mrs. Madge Louise Cuffee you have our heartfelt deepest sympathy. We will always remember Mrs. Madge as a lady of grace and compassion. We remember visiting her home on occasions, talking with her at other events, and seeing her beautiful smile. She was such a lady of grace and beauty. We will remember her affectionately. Willie Louise, we will pray that God surround you and give you comfort during this difficult time. We have watched you and your mother - it always brought us such a smile. We saw and felt the closeness and respect as mother and daughter. Our deepest sympathy is extended to the family.

Louise, I am just hearing about the loss of your Mom today! Please accept my deepest condolences! She was my 3rd grade elementary teacher! I have always loved her! She was a friend of my mother and father! She was held in high regard by my parents! Though I have not seen her often in these latter years, somehow, I took comfort in knowing she was still with us on the earth after both of my parents passed! Mrs. Cuffee was more than a teacher! She loved her students! She also seemed to love life! Going to school at Crestwood Elementary, with her as a teacher, was like feeling as safe and supported as when we were in our homes! I already miss her being in the earth! But, I rejoice that she is with the Father! Louise, take great care of yourself!
