Sally Kester Mounce, 83, passed away peacefully at her home Saturday, Feb. 19, 2022, surrounded by her loving family. She is now resting in the arms of her heavenly Father in her eternal home and reunited with her beloved husband, Carroll William Mounce.
Born in West Burlington, Iowa, she was the daughter of the late Warren Walker Kester and Annabelle Tucker Kester. She raised her two children with love and devotion with her husband.
Upon retirement and the death of her husband, Sally relocated from Charlotte to Nakina to help raise her grandchildren, whom she loved dearly. She went to their ballgames, award ceremonies, tutoring sessions, dental appointments, piano lessons, swimming lessons and so much more. She was everything you would imagine a grandmother to be. She enjoyed playing the piano at church and at home, making pottery, knitting, painting and jewelry.
There will be a celebration of life memorial service at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 26 at South Park Church in Charlotte. Inman Ward Funeral Home & Crematory of Tabor City is serving the family.
She is survived by one son, Todd Kester Mounce of Nakina; one daughter, Julie Ann Whaley and husband, Terry, of Nakina; four grandchildren, Katherine Whaley Shrader (Bo), Walter Charles Whaley, Anna Marie Whaley and Terry Wayne Whaley Jr.; and two great-grandchildren, Camden Tyler Shrader and Caroline Grace Shrader.
The family would like to thank Alene Beck, Sharon Nobles, Samantha Williams, RN, Lisa Nobles, CNA, Raquel Kerman and Lower Cape Fear LifeCare, for the loving care of our mother.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Sally’s memory to Lower Cape Fear LifeCare, 206 Warrior Trail, Whiteville, N.C. 28472.
We know that God is pleased to have one of his kind and generous Angels back in this loving arms. She is at peace with him now.
