DUREMA GURGANIOUS RICHARDSON LATHEM Durema Gurganious Richardson Latham, 90, of Pender County, went to be with her Heavenly Father on Sunday, June 10, 2018.

Durema is a member of Blakes Chapel in Hampstead. There was nothing she loved more than her Lord and her family. Her sons were the joy of her life. She was a very hard working lady who owned Heide's Restaurant in Castle Hayne for many years. Durema worked with Sunway Tours in Myrtle Beach and saw much of this wonderful world. She loved flowers, birds, and her two cats, "Rolex" and "Tiger". She is survived by four sons, Grady Richardson (Ellen), Anthony Richardson, Randy Richardson, and Heide Richardson (Lisa); three grandchildren, Grady Jr. (Amy), Clint (Danielle) and Amy Richardson; six great-grandchildren, Graham, Abigail, Luke, Ella, Clint Jr., and Gunner; three sisters, Nancy Rogers, Brenda McAdams (Jerry), and Jo Pridgen; brother, Mike Gurganious (Linda); and numerous nieces and nephews. A graveside service will be held at 11:00 am Wednesday, June 13, 2018, at Wilmington National Cemetery with Rev. Steve Spearing officiating. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Durema's memory may be made online or by mail to Lower Cape Fear Hospice, 1414 Physicians Drive, Wilmington, NC 28401.
