August 28, 2022, 90, Snow Hill –
Earl Brantley “EB” Mewborn, Jr., 90, was welcomed into his Heavenly home on Sunday, August 28, 2022. The son of the late Earl Brantley Mewborn, Sr. and Mary Wooten Mewborn, EB was born and raised in Greene County.
Nothing pleases EB more than getting outside and riding on his lawnmower, taking care of his grass. EB will always be remembered for having such a well-manicured lawn. However, no matter how much he loved spending time in the yard, he loved nothing more than spending time with his family, especially his grandkids. To his children and grandchildren – he was the perfect role model. He instilled the idea that he preferred to teach by action rather than by speaking and lived by that philosophy his entire life.
A service to celebrate EB’s life will be held on Thursday, September 1, 2022 at 2:30 P.M. at Harrell’s Chapel FWB Church. The family will receive friends 30 minutes prior to the service, from 2:00 P.M. until 2:30 P.M. at the church. Following the service, burial will be held at Snow Hill Cemetery.
EB is survived by his daughter, Shari Lanette Mewborn, and husband, Jesse Oakes; grandchildren, Brantley Mewborn Cooper, Amelia Bryn Victoria Cooper, and Arend Stratton Cooper; sister, Dixie Cantu, as well as a host of nieces and nephews that were near and dear to his heart.
In addition to his parents, EB is preceded in death by his loving wife, Geraldine Ginn Mewborn; son, Earl Brantley Mewborn, III., and sister Mary Marie Letchworth.
In lieu of flowers in memory of EB, the family suggests memorials be sent to:
Harrell’s Chapel FWB Church
