Audrey Elizabeth McCain

February 21, 1937 – November 03, 2018

Audrey Elizabeth McCain was born in Richmond, Virginia to Francis and Franses Brizendine. She passed away after a short illness.

Preceded in death by her husband Joseph McCain, parents Francis (Pinkey) Brizendine and Franses Brizendine, brother Mallory Brizendine, son Gary Mustin, and step-son Jerry McCain.

She is survived by her son Greg Mustin, daughters, Judy Walker, Janet Jenkins, Sharon Monson, Jackie Szymanski, Sandra Lee, Karen Newbern, step-sons Joey McCain and Roger Prince, step-daughters Judy McCain, Jeanie McCain Clonginger, and Jackie McCain Jackson. 34 grandchildren, 51 great-grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild and 1 great-great grandchild on the way. She is also survived by one brother, Danny Brizendine and one sister, Marjorie Brizendine Williams.

She is known as the ‘Grandma’ of the community by many she has cared for along the years. She was the community seamstress as she was a very talented lady on the sewing machine. She was also very crafty, and an excellent cook.

Loving, patient, kind, forgiving, hospitable, gentle, friendly, funny, and prayerful are just a few of the many admirable characteristics she had.  She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.  However, she knew Jesus Christ as her Savior and was looking forward to exchanging her earthly home for her eternal home in Heaven.  We know she is peacefully resting with her Lord.

A service will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 11 a.m. at Grandy Community Church, 121 Augusta Drive, Grandy, NC.

The viewing will be from 10 to 10:45 a.m. and the service will begin at 11 a.m. The burial will follow at the Powells Point Baptist Church cemetery and a fellowship in the fellowship hall afterwards.
