Pace was born in Atlanta, Georgia. She was the eldest of the group members, “The Anointed Pace Sisters”. The members of the group were Duranice Pace, Phyllis Pace, June Pace–Martin, Melonda Pace, Dejuaii Pace, Leslie Pace, Latrice Pace and Lydia Pace. They grew from singing in Church as children to singing around the world to share their love for Christ.
That Thursday night, many people posted memories of her singing and how she poured so much joy into their lives. Through her music she showed that God was a miracle worker, no matter what doctors told her.
Steve Harvey expressed his grief for Pace by sharing a clip of her singing on “The Steve Harvey Show”, she talked about her struggle dealing with Thyroid Cancer and showed off her vocal skills through it all.
