Obituary

Mary Holbrooks Sides, 86, of Stanfield, passed away Saturday, January 21, 2023 at her home.

Mary was born May 8, 1936 in Stanly County to the late Bruner Edward Holbrooks and the late Martha Jane Holbrooks. 
She was also preceded in death by son, Barry Anderson Sides; sisters, Beatrice H. Smith, Ruth H. Blair, Miriam H. Chesser, and Ramelle "Monk" H. Hartsell; brothers, Carl Holbrooks and Bill Holbrooks.

The family will receive friends from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm, Wednesday, January 25, 2023 at Hartsell Funeral Home of Midland.

Burial will follow at the First Baptist Cemetery at 200 Hwy. 200 North, Stanfield.

Mary was a devoted wife, and a wonderful mother and grandmother.  She was a second grade teacher at Stanfield Elementary School for nearly 20 years.  Mary was the church organist at First Baptist Church of Stanfield for most of her life where she was a faithful member, having been involved in many of the church's ministries and activities.  Some of her favorite pastimes included making floral arrangements, visiting Lake Waccamaw with her family, catering at weddings, and visiting and ministering to the sick and the elderly.  Mary had a smile that could brighten the room and had a heart for people.  She will be sorely missed by all who knew her but she is now in the comforting arms of her Lord and Savior.

Survivors include husband, Larry Anderson Sides of Stanfield; son, Jeffrey Edward (Ann) Sides of Cary; and grandchildren, Noah Anderson Sides and Jordan Elizabeth Sides.
