Addie Bynum Obituary

Ms. Addie Jean (Burnette) Bynum, age 86 of Pittsboro, NC transitioned to eternal rest Saturday, February 10, 2024, at her residence.

On February 10, 2024, Addie Jean Burnette Bynum ascended to her final resting place after 86 years of giving love and joy to her family, friends, and countless others.   An insatiable thirst for knowledge fueled her passion for reading, puzzles, word games, news, and all things interesting.   Affectionately known as Jean, her wonderful and mischievous sense of humor brought a smile to all who knew her well, as did her unparalleled talents in the kitchen.  

More than anything, Jean was a giver.  Whether nursing patients during her years at UNC Memorial Hospital, embracing every one of her children’s friends, or responding to someone in need, she helped anyone she could, however she could.   All who knew her are better as a result. 

After graduating from high school as valedictorian, attending North Carolina Central University, and serving in the Air Force, Jean dedicated her life to being an amazing mother and grandmother.   Her unending love and beautiful smile will forever remain in the hearts of her children Betty Bynum, William Bynum (Denise), Nicole Bynum, her grandchildren Blythe Bynum (Chris Carpenter) and Kent Copeland, and a treasure trove of family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that anyone who desires to extend their support consider making a donation in Jean’s honor to the CORA Food Pantry (https://www.corafoodpantry.org/).  

A celebration of Jean’s life will be scheduled at a future date.
