Bishop Frank Summerfield passed away two months ago on July 2nd, from an unspecified illness and now his wife Joenell Summerfield has passed we have learned, she was 61.
Bishop Frank Summerfield and his wife Joenell Summerfield co-pastored the Word of God Fellowship Church and Academy in Raleigh, North Carolina together.
In a statement released to the Christian Post, the church announced Summerfield’s passing.
“It is with great sadness that the Word of God Fellowship Church Ministries announces the passing of Overseer JoeNell Summerfield, Co-Founder and Co-Pastor of Word of God Fellowship Church, Academy, and Daycare in Raleigh, NC,” the church announced in a brief statement.
The church said she passed September 9th, but did not say what caused her death.
We do know she took ill back in January, because Bishop T.D. Jakes had asked for prayers for “healing” for Lady Joenell on his Instagram page.
