CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Hundreds of people attended a celebration of life for another of the Charleston church shooting victims Sunday.

The Rev. DePayne Middleton Doctor dedicated her life to serving the Lord, her family and friends say, and she was part of the ministerial staff of Emanuel AME Church.

"And this was what her life was like, the Glory of God," church member Jennifer Robinson said.

A mother, a minister and a woman of God, she had a voice that would light up any room in ministry and in song.

"Any song that she sang just brought tears to your eyes because she loved the Lord and she praised him accordingly," church member Marlene Dawson said.

Doctor was a minister at Mt. Moriah Missionary Baptist Church before her time ministering at Emanuel AME.

"It's amazing to see how she moved among us," Calvin Malone, who ministered with Doctor, said. "And sometimes you don't know when you're entertaining angels but we were."

Many waited in line to honor Doctor, a former admissions coordinator at Southern Wesleyan University's Charleston learning center and the mother of four daughters.

"All are strengthened in the Lord," Malone said. "So she brought them up in the way that they should go and I don't think they'll ever leave that path."

And one thing those close to her couldn't say enough: "She had a beautiful spirit."

"But I say who she is because she's gone from among us," Malone said. "But she is not dead. She still lives."

Southern Wesleyan College says it is offering her four daughters full tuition.
