My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family of Ms. Mary Alice Teets during this most difficult time. Please accept my most sincere condolences and may God ease the pain of your loss.
The town of Pembroke is a better place. Did
The Lumbee tribe is a better place and so is everybody who loved and respected Miss Mary. I remember first meeting her when I was involved with the .Cub Scout She help 327 Celebrate it’s 50the birthday. Since her dad was not around…she was our guest of honor because if it hadn’t been for her father Pembroke wouldn’t of had any Cub Scouts.
Both her husband and son were original cast members of Strike at the Wind in 1976.
She was truly dedicated to her Berea Baptist Church family.
Ms. Mary, you’ve kept your faith and declared your Victory in Jesus. You’re testimony is truly a legacy that will live on.
Written respectfully, Cookie
