October 14, 1945 - April 5, 2013
Daisy Mae Harvey, daughter of the late Eddie Alston and Elnora Goings Alston, was born on October 14, 1945, in Halifax County, North Carolina.
She received her formal education in the Warren County, North Carolina, Public School System. Upon confession of her faith in Christ, she joined the Christian fellowship of the Pleasant Zion Baptist Church in Littleton, North Carolina, where she remained until God called her home.
Daisy was united in Holy Matrimony to Rufus “Gee” Harvey, who preceded her in death. She was faithfully employed and retired as a housekeeper for the late Mason Hawfield.
She loved her family and friends, who would meet at her home to gather vegetables from the garden, laugh, tell jokes, and remember the “Good old days”. Although Daisy was quite aggressive with her speech, she had a loving kind heart.
Peacefully, she departed this earthly life on Friday, April 5, 2013, at Halifax Regional Medical Center in Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina.
Those remaining to forever cherish the everlasting memories of her life are her devoted sisters, Carrie Robinson of Littleton, NC, and Amie Clanton (Amos) of Roanoke Rapids, NC; two sisters-in-law, Linda Harvey and Carolyn Harvey of Littleton, NC; one brother-in-law, Fred Mitchell, Jr. (Celestine ) of Trenton, New Jersey; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends who will all miss her greatly.
In addition to her parents, Daisy has now also rejoined her sister, Laura Frances Clanton. Rest in Peace and enjoy your reunion!
Funeral services will be held at 1:00 P.M. on Friday, April 12, 2013, at the funeral home. Her Pastor, Rev. Clinton Boyd, will eulogize, and burial will follow in the Harvey Family Cemetery, Bacon Road, Littleton. The body will repose at the funeral home until 8:30 P.M. on Thursday, April 11, 2013.
