Melba Brewer

January 6, 1938 ~ September 13, 2019 (age 81)

Mrs Melba Lee Bell Brewer, 4459 Rennert Road, Shannon transitioned from her earthly home to her heavenly home on September 13, 2019 at Southeastern Hospice House with her family by her side.

Mrs Brewer was the daughter of late James Son Bell and the late Lela H Bell.  She was preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, the late Isaac Virgil (IV) Brewer, her sons Ivan Brewer, Alvin Brewer, her brothers Carolous Bell, Sanford Bell, and Horace Bell.

Mrs Brewer was a woman loved, respected, and cherished by all that she met. A virtuous woman..”Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”Proverbs 31: 29  When sickness drove her to her knees, her source of strength was founded on knowing the Lord as savior, provider, and healer, “Her everything”. She became that rock, that golden nugget in the Saddletree Church of God. Her membership in the Saddletree Church of God involved her in the active roles of President of the Ladies Ministry, member of the Choir, Sunday School Teacher, a Prayer Mother for the young ladies, a true armor bearer for the Pastors of the church. She was a faithful member to Saddletree Church of God.

Mrs Melba worked in the industry field, farming, retail, and her home. She lived a life that speaks for itself before her friends, coworkers, and family.  She leaves many memories to cherish, but the most important one that she would like for all to remember,  is that her life here was spent preparing for her  heavenly home and she is there welcoming everyone to come join her.

She leaves to cherish those memories, three daughters, Alvina Blanks (Tommy), Avlean Locklear (Elvis), both of Lumberton,  Audrey Chavis (Preston) of Maxton, a son Avery Brewer of Lumberton, a daughter-in-law Vicky  Brewer of Lumberton,  and two young men that she fostered into the family Earl Bullard, and Timothy Ray; 12 grand children and 9 great-grandchildren,  a sister Sharon Oxendine (Earl) a brother Jerry L Bell (Ethelene), sister-in-laws and  brother-in-laws that thought of her as their sister, her nurse Mrs Dianne Smith, a co-worker Ms Margie Hayes, an exceptional church family, and a host of relatives and  friends.
