Blanch, NC - It is with profound sorrow that we announce the death of Mrs. Annie Jeffers Harrelson of 1071 Zimmerman Rd. Blanch, who departed the earthly realm, and passed away peacefully surrounded by family, for her heavenly home on Monday, November 02, 2020.
Mrs. Annie Jeffers Harrelson was born on December 31, 1928 to the late Reverend Eddie Jeffers and Maude Mitchell Jeffers in Caswell County, North Carolina.
Annie attended Caswell County public schools in North Carolina. She was a member of Hamer Missionary Baptist Church, where she served in many capacities. She was a woman after God’s own heart, demonstrated kindness and compassion and was willing to do anything for anyone. Annie was a true missionary; she loved helping people, serving them in love. She also served on the Usher Board, Senior Choir, and the “Willing Workers” auxiliaries.
For more than two decades of service, Annie was a retiree of Burlington Industries in Burlington, North Carolina. However, her "unofficial" second career was serving as a caretaker for the family. Her steadfast spirit gave her the strength to care for family members; while using her home as a haven for love and healing. Known to many as the matriarch of the family, the holidays were perfect opportunities for the family to indulge in amazing food spreads she prepared. But, of her greatest loves, spending time in her garden and sunroom brought balance to her life.
In addition to her parents, Annie was preceded in death by three sisters, Polly Cobb, Elmira Pinnix, and Myrtle Bradshaw; four brothers, Moses, Mitchell, Earlin, and Fred Jeffers. And, her dearest companion, Mr. H. who adored her.
Mrs. Annie Jeffers Harrelson, leaves to cherish her memories to one daughter, Sheila H. Anderson and husband Cornelius Anderson of Riverdale, Maryland; one son, Dwight Harrelson of Blanch, North Carolina; one granddaughter, Dr. Ashley N. Campbell and husband Dr. Lomax R. Campbell of Rochester, New York; three sisters, Nora “Peggy” Brown of Washington, District of Columbia, Mattie Jeffers of Danville, Virginia, and Mary Pace and husband William Pace of Greensboro, North Carolina; two brothers, James Sherman Jeffers and wife Lillie Jeffers of Blanch, North Carolina, and Joseph Jeffers and wife Lula Jeffers of Danville, Virginia; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
