Mary Childers

Mary Ellen Reid Childers, age 92, passed away Saturday, December 26, 2020 at Alamance Regional

Medical Center.  She was the last surviving child of Herman J. Reid and Gertrude Hughes Reid.  She was married for 45 years to the late Jack D. Childers.

Mary Ellen was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She was affectionally known as “Nanny”. She took great pride in her family. Her final night at home was Christmas Eve doing what brought her so much joy, giving to her family and making Christmas memories.  She was like a little child when it came to Christmas and always had the inside and outside of her home lit up.  Her passing will leave a hole in our hearts that will never be filled.  But, on December 30th, she will be celebrating with Jack on his 92nd birthday
