Obituary for QUEEN E. SPRIGGS

Queen Elizabeth Spriggs was born on September 19, 1943 in Washington, DC to the late
Asberry and Mander Green.

"Queenie" as she was so often called, received her early childhood education in the Washington DC public schools graduating from Eastern High School in 1961. While preparing for her high school graduation she married the love of her life Vernon Spriggs.

In 1955, Queen was baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ at The Way of the Cross Church 4th & Virginia Avenue, Washington, DC by Bishop Bridges. She received the gift of the Holy Ghost shortly thereafter. She joined Bethel Way of the Cross Church under the leadership of her uncle the late Bishop Jacob A. Green. While attending Bethel she served as the 1st church secretary for several years. She sang with the True Heart Singers, Young Adult Choir, Women's Choir, and served on the Missionary Board as well as many other functions of the church.

In 1983, after a discussion with her Pastor she moved her membership to the Mother Church.
Since then she has continued to work out her soul salvation in ministry. She was a member of
the Way of the Cross Chorus, Pastor's Choir, Women's Choir, and Missionary Board just to namea few.

On the National level of the Way of the Cross Church of Christ International Queen served as
the Assistant Registrar on the National Registration committee and Recording Secretary to the
National General Secretary Bishop Samuel Davis. She also served as Executive Secretary on the National Missionary Board.

Queen worked for the federal government for 49 years and 11 months. She worked for various
agencies such as Department of Energy, OPM, Department of Agriculture, Department of State, and the Navy Department. She retired from the Department of Commerce on December 12, 2012 as an EEO Specialist. She also graduated from Loyola College with a degree in Administration.

Queen enjoyed sewing, church and business administration, shopping, but most of all
traveling.

Queen leaves to cherish her memories: her husband of 58 years Vernon Spriggs, three sons:
