Ms. Carolyn Chesney Snipes, age 80 of Sanford, transitioned into eternal rest on Saturday, September 4, 2021, at her residence in Sanford, NC.
Ms. Carolyn Chesney Snipes, the daughter of the late Lacy and Melvin Chesney, was born January 23, 1941 and departed this earthly life on September 4, 2021 at her home.
Carolyn was a faithful member of Macedonia AME Zion Church and served as the head cook of the Hospitality Committee. In her spare time, her servitude extended to her community, as she connected with people through food and ensured no one went hungry. She was well known for her famous chicken and dumplings. She was a loving person who cared deeply for her family and would not miss an opportunity to host a gathering. Carolyn was a beautiful soul; she would greet everyone with her charismatic smile and very distinct laugh- we ALL will miss that laugh.
She was preceded in death by her parents, siblings (Thelma Spruell, Louise Radar, Doris Gray, and Lida Dorsett), two grandchildren (Jerome Johnson III and Shanta McNeill).
She leaves to cherish her memories two sons, Ray Chesney (Barbara), John Lindsey (Sheila) and one daughter, Sophia Alston (Rengate); sisters Viola Barrett, Geraldine Jones; one brother, Lacy George Chesney (Jacquelyn); one brother-in-law James Radar; six grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
