Sarah Margaret Wade

March 8, 1938 ~ January 10, 2018 (age 79)

Sarah Margaret Wade was born in Hoke County, NC on March 8, 1938 to the late Thomas and Nola Wade.  She entered eternal rest on Wednesday, January 10, 2018.

Sarah better known as Sir Margaret was a graduate of the class of 1955, Hoke County High School.

Sarah was a kind, considerate, dedicated, out spoken, nurturing, loving mother, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, and mother figure in her community. 

She was reared and spiritually nurtured in Center Grove Missionary Baptist Church. Latter in life joined First Free Will Baptist Church and was a faithful member until health began failing. At First Free Will Baptist Church she served faithfully on the Senior Choir and Pastor’s Aid Committee.

She gave in any way she could by providing hot meals, childcare or after school care in her home free of charge for working families. She worked very hard in the hope of the preservation and sanctity of family.  Sarah never hesitated to share her wisdom and knowledge with all who would seek her advice.  She served as a confidant to her family members, friends and neighbors allowing her to develop many special relationships within the family and community.  She exhibited through words and deeds that she answered a higher call as expressed in Matthew 25:31-40 as she tended the sick, the hungry, the homeless, the uneducated and anyone else who would knock on her door in need of some type of assistance.

Awaiting  her arrival around heaven's throne are her loving and devoted parents Thomas and Nola Wade. Her sisters Veorah Mack, Aggie Haynes, Ernestine McNeill, Flossie Wade-Stubbs. Her loving brothers Malcolm Wade, Theron Wade, Carthel Wade, Clarence Wade, Stacy Wade, and James Robert Wade.  A very close friend Esta Mae Leak.

Left to cherish everlasting memories of her love and affection is her loving and devoted children; daughter Veronica (AL) Patterson, one Son Ronald Wade, four grand children Raschod Wade, Robyn chambers, Ronnie Daniell McLean, Frankie Jamal McCutchen, 21 great grand,  and 2 great great grand one sister Annie Bell (Edward) West and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends .

Although Sarah was a outspoken and unassuming woman who shied away from recognition and public accolades, her family knew that she was the glue that held the family together.
