Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints. Psalms 116:15

Early in the morning on Wednesday, November 26, 2014 at Southern Maryland Hospital; Our Lord and Savior opened His loving arms and welcomed home the courageous soul of Denise "Necie" Elizabeth Waters Mair. Her love of people, unwavering faith, witty humor and personable demeanor will be missed by all of her family, friends, church family, co workers, crew and Biker community forever.

Necie was born on December 24, 1963 in Washington DC. as the fifth child of the late Lemuel Waters and Blanche Waters. In spite of the untimely passing of her father at an early age, Necie graduated in 1981 from Lackey High School in Nanjemoy MD. She then attended North Carolina A & T University. She married Steven Mair and 3 sons were born to that union.

Necie began her 30+ years of employment with the Federal Government with her latest employment being with the Broadcast Board of Governors. Even in the midst of her health struggles she still continued to work whenever her condition permitted her as a testament to her determination to not be defined by her illness. As a giver at heart, she always knew how to encourage those around her whether by speaking into their life or giving a token to let them know she treasured their presence in her life.

Necie was a well loved member of Christian Unity Baptist Church in Waldorf, MD where she was a major supporter of her Pastor and Family and all of the Leadership of the Church. She could be seen at any service fully immersed in worship or dancing her dance of victory. She was the founder and President of the Winning Souls to Christ Motorcycle Ministry and took great pride in hosting the annual Bike Blessing Service each May. She was also a faithful member of the Praise Team, Mass Choir, Dance Ministry, Social Media Ministry, Glorious Ladies Of Worship, Transportation Ministry and the SALT Singles Ministry.

In 2013, she launched her own "His Hands" Ministry to support those battling cancer and the Caregivers that supported them. This ministry was both for support and information and gave many people a closer look at the daily struggles of those diagnosed with cancer. She said that it was important for others to know, that although she had highs and lows, she was still, In God's Hands.

Her push for awareness brought her into the public eye in the Southern Maryland area which lead to a beautiful article in American Cancer Society Magazine, a story on Live Fox 5 and to be honored at the Annual Pink and Black Survivor Gala in Virginia.

Necie was preceded in death by Her father Lemuel Waters, maternal grandparents Samuel and Emma Gutrick, paternal grandparents, Janice and Freeman Waters, and Goddaughter/niece Bria Warren.

She will be missed but lovingly remembered by her mother Blanche Waters; children; Justin Waters, Devin Mair and Nicholas Mair, goddaughter Danyelle Washington; Siblings Diane Warren (Phillip), Wayne Waters, Patricia Washington (Perry), Theresa Grant (Darryl); grandchildren: Justin Waters Jr., Julyssa Waters, Jalen Robinson, J'Nadia Waters and Jaiden Waters; an attentive devoted friend Kevin West and special friend that shared many years Brenda Duckett; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and numerous friends.

Her viewing will be held on Friday, December 5, 2014 from 9am until time of service 11am at The Sanctuary at Kingdom Square, 9033 Central Avenue, Capital Heights, MD 20743.
