Obituary

 Lillian Jacobs Brewington was born June 16, 1935 in the Buckhead Community of Bolton, North Carolina to the late Eli and Martha Agnes Young Jacobs.  On the morning of February 19, 2022 being the age of 86, she was called to her heavenly home. 

Funeral service will be held at 2 PM, Wednesday, February 23rd at New Hope Baptist Church in Bolton with interment to follow in the church cemetery.  The family will receive friends one hour before the service at the church and at other times at the home of Jehrie Jacobs at 137 Ricefield Road, Bolton, NC.  

 

After uniting in holy matrimony to the late Barney Brewington on June 6, 1960, they had a beautiful blended family of five.  She resided in Clinton, North Carolina the majority of her adult life and worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant.  Lillian cared for her clients, but most importantly she shared her love for Jesus with them.  She was an avid gardener and enjoyed having Sunday dinner with family and friends.  Mrs. Brewington will be available for viewing Tuesday, February 22nd from 9 AM - 5 PM, at Crumpler-Honeycutt Funeral Home.

 

At an early age she dedicated her life to Christ and was a faithful servant.  She was a devoted member of New Hope Baptist Church where you could always find her in her normal seat.  Mrs. Lil, as she was called by most, was a mentor to many pastors, deacons, family and community members.  She was admired and respected by both her words of encouragement and random deeds of kindness.  As an attentive listener, she won the hearts of many loved ones with infinite compassion, profound understanding, and practical  wisdom.   

 

She is survived by four children: Jehrie Lynn Jacobs, Loraine Starling (Floyd Sr.), Don Brewington (Melissa) and Dean Brewington (Carol Gene); five sisters Reba Freeman, Dorothy Jacobs (Ervin), Wanda Freeman (Tommy), Sylvia Hunt (Jack) and Teresa Freeman; nine grandchildren: Vernon Groves (Stephanie), Floyd Jr. (Tonya), Misty Jacobs, William David (Jessica), Natasha Brewington, Jerry Layton Jacobs, Corinna Brewington, Troy Brewington (Freddie), and Cory Brewington (Teryn). nine great grandchildren: Aqualla Jacobs, Cheyanne Jacobs, Zayne Brewington, Rowan Brewington, Kayla Howard, Dakota Starling, Alina Cheyanne, Peyton Starling, and Ashton Godwin. Sister in Laws: Alpha Bryant and Betty Brewington; Brother in Laws: Bob Still and K. Ervin Bryant. A bonus son: Rev. Don Carter (Loretta); and a host of nieces and nephews.

 

She is preceded in death by: a daughter Natalie Sue Brewington; three brothers: James Rufus, Russell, and Gary Jacobs; one sister:  Anita Jacobs Still; two brother in laws: Lacy Freeman and John Freeman; three sister in laws: Geneva, Carolyn, and Marcella Jacobs.
