NCNW regrets to share the sad news that Mr. Lonnie Keith transitioned peacefully from this life to his heavenly home today. Mr. Keith resided in DeKalb County, Georgia with his wife, Dr. A. Lois Keith, who has faithfully and ably served NCNW for decades as section President, National Executive Committee member and chair of the national membership committee. The devoted couple has been married for forty-nine years and are known for their extensive travel to the far corners of the earth, including trips to China, Australia, Egypt, Greece and Alaska. Mr. Keith enthusiastically supported and participated in NCNW activities at the local and national levels before his health began to fail. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Dr. Keith, embrace her with love and concern and pray that God will send His Spirit to comfort and console her at this difficult time.

With condolences,
Johnnetta Betsch Cole, Ph. D.
Chair of the Board and 7th President
