MEBANE_ Mrs. Hope Williams Whitmore, 53 of Mebane, NC passed away on January 6, 2021at her residence. A native of Alamance County, she is the daughter of Howard James and Helen Marie Williams, who survives. Hope was a lady who loved many things like crochet, reading, shopping for a bargain, finding home town restaurants to try out, cooking for her family and friends but she loved nothing more than her family, especially her granddaughter. She and her family would take trips and vacations at White Lake which she treasured so dearly and she had a special love for British TV and everything English. Hope was a proud member of Bethesda Baptist Church where she worked with the youth ministries and was always giving back to her Church and Church family. Hope was employed with Duke Urgent Care and always looked forward to how she was able to help others. Hope was known for being a simple lady and laid back and always put others needs above her own. Survivors include her husband of 22 years, Rodney Tyrone Whitmore; her children, Sierra Whitmore (Henry Cooke), Ashleigh Kessler (James) and Dalton C. Whitmore; her loving granddaughter, Shae Kessler; a sister, Heather Williams (Gifford Etherton) and her loving nieces, nephews cousins and other extended family. A funeral service will be held at 2:00 PM on Monday January 11, 2021 at the McClure Funeral Home Chapel in Mebane with the Pastors Clyde Whitmore and Dr. William Wilson Jr. officiating. Burial will follow in Bethesda Baptist Church Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 3 until 5 PM on Sunday January 10, 2021 at the McClure Funeral Home in Mebane. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Dalton's and Sierra's College Fund at State Employee's Credit Union as they both start school in the near future. As a request of the family and in honor of Hope, they ask for family and friends to dress casual as she would have wanted everyone to be comfortable.

I worked with Hope at UNC for several years. She was lovable, friendly and caring. Despite working in pediatric oncology, Hope was always positive and uplifting - she was a real treasure. I am so sorry for your loss.

God has given Sister Hope her wings to live with him eternally. My cherished remembrance of her that stands so dear to me was April 2012 when my parents’ home in South Carolina caught on fire. I told my church about it the following Sunday in which Hope was present in service that particular Sunday. Not knowing what was about to happen Sister Hope got on aboard collecting monetary offerings by setting up a Spaghetti dinner at the church to help my parents. People she never met but had the compassion to help two strangers in their time need. Sister Hope's selfless acts of love and kindness will never be forgotten.
God bless you family in your time of sorrow. We love you! Reverend Dr. Willie and Cathy Barton
