Caloosa Belle, Jan 5 2006 --
Christine Mizell Venezia, 82, a pioneer of
Pahokee, suffered a massive stroke and died at J.F.K. Hospital on Dec.
26, 2005. She was preceded in death by her parents, Jim and Julia
Mizell. She is survived by the father of her two daughters, Earle
Pitts; two daughters Beverly Vann (Earl), Amanda Howle (Paul-former
son-in-law); five grandchildren, Patricia Campbell (Eddie), Lynn Hewitt
(Steve), Hal Vann (Tina), Blane Kohr (Nadine) and Marnae Pelham (Kip);
10 great grandchildren; Ronnie Fripp, Justin Mclntosh (Meritssy),
Jonathan McIntos, Jr. Gordon, Tiffany and Will Vann, Aliyah and Marcus
Kohr Paige and Peyton Pelham; and one great-great grandchild, Kathryn
Faith Fripp. She was a true survivor and pioneer of Pahokee. Her
father, Jim Mizell, built their house on Bacom Point Rd., and farmed in
Pahokee in 1928, just before the hurricane — she was five years old.
Often she would talk about the good times and old pioneers of Pahokee
that are gone now. She thought the house was tried and true to survive
another hurricane, so she wanted to stay throughout Hurricane Wilma.
But, when the roof came off and wall came down (while standing there in
it) her faith in Jesus Christ, knowing he could keep us safe while the
storm passed by, kept us from dying. Her heart was broken, as she had
no home. Her faith never wavered, but her body was too weak. She was a
victim of Hurricane Wilma. It not only took her home, it took her
too.Her love for playing the piano at church through the years and
teaching Sunday School will be remembered by all that heard her. She
had such a loving spirit. But, maybe most all of you will remember all
the pounds you put on from her delicious cooking. She won the prize for
baking one year at the Grassy Waters Festival. She talked of all the
preachers she had fed through the years in that old house. She will
truly be missed.Friends and family visited at Glades Funeral Chapel on
Wednesday, Dec. 28, 2005 and funeral services were held at the Church
of the Nazarene in Okeechobee, with Rev. Jim Hudson, pastor officiating
on Thursday, Dec. 29, 2005. Interment following at Port Mayaca
Cemetery. All arrangements by Glades Funeral Chapel of Belle Glade
