Millions of people around the world are mourning the loss of Malinda Sapp today, wife of Gospel Singer and Pastor Marvin Sapp. Malinda lost her life to colon cancer, and she will be missed not only by her family, but by fans of the couple as well.
Sadly, in addition to her husband, Marvin, Malinda is also leaving behind three children, Marvin Jr., 16, Mikaila, 13, and Madison, 11. The family enjoyed a quiet life at their home in Michigan, and our hearts and prayers go out to them during this difficult time.
Marvin and Malinda were married for 18 years, and enjoyed life out of the spotlight. Their home is on 2 acres outside of Grand Rapids, and Marvin said how much he liked the neighborhood and the fact that their children benefited from the “family community.”
Malinda most enjoyed the “peace” of the home, and called the heart of any house, the kitchen, her “sanctuary.” “Cooking is my pastime; it helps me feel as if I’m serving my family,” she said in an interview in 2008.
Marvin, Malinda, and their family were exceptionally close, and there is no doubt that Malinda’s memory will be kept alive by all four of them.
We wish them peace during this difficult time, and they have our deepest sympathy.
