With a multitude of compassion and concern, the Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations Family announces the earthly departure of Mrs. Katie Gertrude Whidbee Spellman. Mrs. Spellman pulled the drapes on this journey called life on Monday, May 1, 2023 in Elizabeth City, NC.
Services to reflect Mrs. Spellman’s rich life sketch from her time of birth until the moment she entered into everlasting rest are finalized by her cherished family. On Saturday, May 6, 2023 between the hours of 5pm and 7pm at Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations in Hertford, NC tender moments of reflection will take place. While there, relatives and friends can unite in love and support for each other as they prepare to say “farewell.” On Sunday, May 7, 2023 commencing at 2pm there will be a Triumphant Legacy Celebration at the Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations.
Immediately following the formalities in the Chapel, Mrs. Spellman’s earthen vessel along with her cherished family will be escorted to Cedarwood Cemetery for Committal Rites.
Mrs. Spellman was so much to so many and it will be difficult with her no longer being with us on this side. However, those who loved her can find solace knowing she is now strolling the streets paved with pure gold free from all of life’s fitful fevers. There, she’s sitting at the Welcome Table feasting on milk and honey while enjoying being in the presence of her Heavenly Father.
Guests are being received at 103 White Street Hertford, NC 27944 where they will also assemble in preparation for the Prestigious Horton Ebony Motorcade.
The Professionals at Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations are accommodating each request and personal desire of the Spellman and connected families.
