Mildred S. Monroe Sr.
Mildred Ruth Stewart Monroe, 88, a recent resident of Southern Pines, died Monday, Nov. 19, 2012, at the Randolph Hospice Home, in Asheboro.
Mildred was born in the high mountains of Western North Carolina in the Norton Community of Jackson County. She was the daughter of Jessie Manous Stewart (born 1904) and Claude Stewart (born 1902). Her early years were difficult due to the early death of her mother, but she lived a rewarding life. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Southern Pines.
Mrs. Monroe was married to Alton Monroe Jr., who preceded her in death in 1988. Also preceding her in death were two sisters, Stella Lenora Stewart Hughes and Sarah Marie Stewart Marr; and one half-brother, Henry Wallace Moss, formerly of Fontana Dam. She is survived by several nieces and nephews of various locations in North Carolina, Alabama, Virginia and Georgia.
Mrs. Monroe was buried beside her late husband, Alton, in the Pinelawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Southern Pines, with the Rev. David Helms officiating.
Arrangements were handled by Boles Funeral Home of Southern Pines.
