Audrey Lomax Cannon,101, transitioned from labor to reward on Wednesday, January 3, 2024 at her home in Ellerbe, NC.

Audrey Louise Cannon entered her eternal rest on January 3, 2024, at age 101. She was born to Edward Davidson and Julia Kent on October 31, 1922, in Plainfield, NJ. She met and married Miller W.

Prior to this, she spent time in Virginia and Maryland, and most significantly Plainfield, NJ. In this city, she aided in serving her community.

    Dear family,

    My heart aches from the grief that you are suffering.

    Knowing of God’s embracing love for you, continue looking to him when ” He will wipe out all tears
    from our eyes, death, pain, and suffering will be no more. ” – Revelation 21: 3,4

    He says death is an ” enemy that will be brought to nothing. ”
    1 Corinthians 15:26
    It comforts our hearts to know this pain will be a thing of the
    past and through Christ the resurrection of our loved ones.

    We ” do not sorrow just as the rest do who have no hope! ” 1 Thessalonians 4:13

    love from a stranger,
