Emma Lee (Ginn) Stallings

April 14, 1921 ~ March 26, 2015 (age 93)

Emma Lee Ginn Stallings finished her course in faith on March 26, 2015 at the St Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital in Greensboro, Ga. She was a resident of the Greenpoint Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Union Point, Ga. since 2010.  Previous to that time she was a lifetime resident of Goldsboro, NC.

She was born in Goldsboro, N.C. to Clarance and Hattie Mae Pilkington Ginn on April 14, 1921. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, J. B. Stallings, her son, Durwood B. Stallings, brother Loyd Ginn and sister, Virginia.

She is survived by her son, James K. Stallings (Donna), Grandchildren, Teresa Stallings Watts (Andy) , Alan James Stallings, Joshua James Stallings (April) and Great Grandchildren, Jeremy Watts (Lisa), Gerald Watts and Mason James Stallings, and Great great grandson, Joshua Will Watts. She is survived by many precious friends and her former daughter in law, Shirley Stallings.

In her younger years she worked in the hospitality industry and in her later life she served her Heavenly Father by ministering in Nursing Homes, and her Church Victory Freewill Baptist Church. She never turned away anyone in need and sacrificed to provide for those less fortunate. She was an avid gardener and loved fishing. She made her husband and sons cry as she reeled in the large catch with a big grin on her face.

The family wishes to express their gratitude to Rev. Fred Crank, his wife, Joy, Eloise Burke, Bea Ella Davis , Donna Strickland and Brenda Hardison for their welcomed visits to Georgia to share their faith and love with our family and especially with our mother, Emma. We also thank her cousin Mahala Wiggins for her regular calls of love and encouragement.
