MAXTON — Sarah Ellen McGirt, age 76, of Maxton passed away on Aug. 2, 2016 at her brother Murphy F. McGirt's home in Blairsville, Ga.

Following her retirement from teaching elementary grades in the Fayetteville school system, she enjoyed accompanying her mother on numerous trips, and provided loving care during her mother's final years.

Her hobbies include her pets, many of whom she rescued; her yard and numerous flowers, some of which she used to beautify the Sunday service at Maxton First Presbyterian Church for many years. In her later years she devoted her very beautiful voice to the Presbyterian Church choir.

She is survived by her brothers Dr. Murphy F. McGirt Jr. and wife Anita, George H. McGirt and wife Alice, and Samuel H. McGirt; Nephews Jonathan McGirt, Mitchell McGirt and wife Federique, Benjamin H. McGirt and wife Mindy, and Murphy F. McGirt III,; Nieces Megan McGirt O'Tool, Heather Lynn McGirt Nickles, Beth McGirt Adams, and Jennifer McGirt Haase and Uncle Paul Blackwell.

The family will receive friends 6-8 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 6, at Richard Boles Funeral Service. Following graveside services with the family at Centre Presbyterian Church Cemetery, a musical memorial service to honor the Christian life of Sarah Ellen will be held at Maxton First Presbyterian Church at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 7. Dr. Robert Dendy will officiate.

Memorial donations may be made to the Maxton First Presbyterian Church Choir Fund, P.O. Box 5, Maxton, NC 28364.

Services are entrusted to Richard Boles Funeral Service.
