As the day draws closer to the end than when it began, the Horton Family joins with loving arms wrapped around the relatives of Mrs. Mary Cornelia Gentry as we embark on the “Last Mile” on this side of the Jordan with her.  Mrs. Gentry got her ticket and stepped on that Morning Train Friday March 5,2021 at Duke Hospice Durham, NC.

Services to reflect on “The Dash” of Mrs. Mary’s Life which was from her time of birth until the moment she entered into everlasting rest are finalized by her cherished family. On Saturday,  March 13,2021 commencing at 12noon there will be a Triumphant Legacy Celebration at Antioch Baptist Church Durham, NC with Dr. Darius J. Horton officiating and delivering the eulogy. Immediately following the formalities in the Sannctuary, Mrs. Gentry earthen vessel along with her cherished family will be escorted to Markham Memorial Gardens for Committal Rites.

Mrs. Gentry 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. 

The Compassionate Professionals of Horton’s Funeral Home and Cremations are serving the Gentry and connected families with uncompromising dignity
