Serenity Village Dancers

It was only fitting that musicians played, singers sang and dancers danced at a celebration of life gathering to honor the life of the Rev. Dr. Harriet Marie Robinson Walker Grigsby, Aug. 7 at Mt. Zion Apostolic Church,   5501 Liberty Heights Ave., Baltimore.

For so many years she lit up worship services and concerts with a strong voice that belied her tiny stature. She recorded four albums with the Utterbach Concert Ensemble and the Marie Walker Singers. And she still roller skated at 79.
