Byrd, Hugh Watson*  
Mr. Hugh Watson Byrd went home to be with his Savior on August 25, 2015. He passed away peacefully at his house at the Village at Brookwood in Burlington, NC. Mr. Byrd was born January 26, 1926, in Harnett County. He was the son of Cosby Roscoe Byrd Sr. and Naomi Jones Byrd, both deceased. He was the husband of his sweetheart of 56 years, Katy Smith Byrd, who went home to the Lord in 2008. Mr. Byrd lived a full life. He married his first love, reared three children, lavished his affection on his eight grandchildren, and died knowing that he was well loved by his family. He was a man of great strength and fortitude, which was best seen in the way he handled his business affairs. He was also a man of great love and kindness, which was most clearly seen in the evident pride that he felt for his eight grandchildren, who affectionately called him "Daddy Byrd." Mr. Watson, as those who worked for him knew him, graduated from Coats High School in Harnett County in 1944. He served in the U.S. Army as part of the 42nd Infantry Division. At the end of World War II, he was part of the occupational forces in Austria. He served until 1946. After his military service, he entered the grocery business with his brother C.R. Byrd in 1949. Byrd's Food Stores, at its height, operated 43 stores and had a large distribution center in Mebane. When he was not working at Byrd's Food Stores, he could be found with his family or at one of his farms in Snow Camp, N.C. He was a lifelong member of Glen Hope Baptist Church where he served on the building and finance committee, served as a deacon, and taught the fourth grade boys' Sunday school class for many years. Mr. Byrd, or Daddy as his children knew him, is survived by his three children: his daughter Kaye Byrd Canada and her husband Joe Canada of Burlington; his oldest son Michael Watson Byrd and his wife Janice Nash Byrd of Burlington; his youngest son Kenneth Hugh Byrd and his wife Laura Ford Byrd of Snow Camp, N.C. Watson, or Daddy Byrd as he was known by his eight grandchildren, lived out the principles found in Proverbs 3:13-17. They will remember his wisdom, strength, and kindness. His grandchildren are Matthew Scott Byrd, Nathan Edward Byrd, Madison Elizabeth Byrd, Joseph Byrd Canada, Jacob Ethan Byrd, Grant Watson Canada, Katy Susanna Canada, and Kenneth Hunter Byrd. His sisters Marie Byrd Clark of Pennsylvania and Linda Byrd Williams of Dunn, N.C survive him. He is preceded in death by his brothers the Rev. Ralph Byrd, Cosby Roscoe Byrd Jr., Arthur Stanton Byrd, Clarence Granville Byrd Sr., Robert Kelton Byrd, and Lewis Talmadge Byrd and a sister, Doris Byrd Wood. The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Thursday, August 27, 2015, at Glen Hope Baptist Church by the Rev. Larry Redding and Dr. J.L. Williams. Interment will follow at Pine Hill Cemetery. The family would like to thank Daddy Byrd's loving caregivers: Neta Davis, Yesica Cardenas, Jill Kruske, and Sharon King.

Clapp, Laura L. Whitesell*  
WHITSETT - Laura L. Whitesell Clapp, age 92, passed away Friday, August 28, 2015, at Clapp's Nursing Center in Pleasant Garden having been a resident there for almost six years. Funeral services celebrating her life will be held Sunday, August 30 at 2 p.m. at Mt. Hope United Church of Christ. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. Laura was the daughter of Ernest David Whitesell, Sr. and Flossie Caroline Gerringer Whitesell and was the fourth of six children. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Ben D. Clapp; brother, J. Howard Whitesell; and two sisters, Doris W. Greeson and Hilda W. Baites. Laura is survived by her children, A. Ronald Clapp and wife Doris of Julian, Gerry D. Clapp of Charlotte, and Bradley N. Clapp and partner Ted Turner of Atlanta, Ga. Also surviving are grandson, Christopher L. Clapp and wife Leslie R. Clapp and their son, Carson H. Clapp of Wilmington; one sister, Mildred W. Shoffner of Cary; brother, Ernest D. Whitesell, Jr. of Whitsett and 15 very loved nieces and nephews. Laura was a lifetime member of Mt. Hope United Church of Christ in Whitsett, to which she was very devoted, and was a lifetime resident of Whitsett, with the exception of brief stays in High Point and Wilmington, N.C. She was retired from the Guilford County School System having worked at Alamance School, the same school from which she graduated in 1940. Her passion was cooking with love and insisting that you partake and never leave without a doggy bag. It was simply her way of expressing love and you experienced the longest good-byes ever as she followed you out. She was known for her yeast rolls which she shared with many lucky recipients. Laura was never heard to utter an ugly word nor say anything disparaging about anyone. She loved her God, her family, her church and the birds which frequented the feeders and houses in her yard. She was beautiful inside and as a young woman was physically beautiful, although she never knew it. When you think of goodness in this world, think of Laura Whitesell Clapp. She was so justly proud of being a Whitesell. Memorial contributions may be made to Mt. Hope United Church of Christ, 2400 Mt. Hope Church Road, Whitsett, N.C. 27377 or the activity fund at Clapp's Nursing Center, 5229 Appomattox Road, Pleasant Garden, N. C. 27313. The family would like to thank the entire staff of Clapp's Nursing Center for their excellent care of Mom and also thank her devoted roommate, Peggy Taylor and her family. Rich and Thompson Funeral and Cremation Service in Burlington is assisting the family. Condolences may be offered at www.richandthompson.com.
