MOULTRIE — Myra Louise Brown Stringfellow, 101, of Moultrie, died Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2012, at the Presbyterian Home in Quitman, Ga.

Graveside rites will be 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 25, at Cobb Suncrest Memorial Gardens with the Rev. Jimmy Voyles officiating.

Born July 31, 1911, in Turner County, Ga., she was the daughter of the late James Thomas Brown and Nina Belle Crawley Brown. A life-long Christian, she made her profession of faith at an early age and was baptized at New Prospect Baptist Church in Turner County. After her family moved to Worth County in the early 1930's, she played the organ and piano at Liberty Hill Baptist Church near Doerun, where her father was founder and minister. On Jan. 25, 1936, she married Robert Jefferson "Jeff" Stringfellow in Worth County. She was a member of the Huguenot Society of the Founders of Manakin in the Colony of Virginia; the Society of the Family of Bruce; Clan Brown; the Pierce Chastain Family Association; the John Benning Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution; and the William B. Moultrie Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

"Mrs. Stringfellow was a constant source of inspiration and love to all who knew her, and her life was devoted to her Lord and to her country. She was proud of her family heritage," her family remembered of her.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband; brothers, Charles Ransom Brown, William Thomas Brown and Durward Mercer Brown; sisters, Ruby Estelle Brown Little, Nina Pauline Brown Dixon, Julia Ella Brown Robinson and Christine Brown Martin; and one nephew, Charles Robert Dixon.

Survivors include two sons, Gene Stringfellow and wife Judy and Hugh Stringfellow and wife Sheila, all of Moultrie; three grandchildren, Jill Allison Stringfellow, Kurt Stringfellow and Amy Lynn Stringfellow Adkins; three great-grandchildren, Annabelle Roberts, Lewis Stringfellow and Conner Adkins; a special niece, Polly Dixon of Houston, Texas; and several cousins, nieces and nephews.
