Time of Service: 2:00 PM

Julia Mae Montague Thompson, 86, lifelong resident of Granville County, passed away on December 27, 2019. She was born in Granville County on May 6, 1933 the daughter of the late Bruce and Lorene Montague. She was the oldest of 4 daughters. She is survived by a daughter, Brenda Thompson, son Mark Thompson and wife Mindy, 3 grandchildren Will Thompson, Julia Thompson and Kate Thompson, sisters Eldie Lee (Johnny) Brummitt, Ann (Neil) Woodlief & Phyllis (David) Beck and many special nieces and nephews. Christ was evident in her life through her love for her church and community. She served her neighbors well. She cared about the person down the road as well as those across the ocean. Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong were important to her. Her bond with her sisters was stronger than strong. "When I say I won’t tell anyone my sisters don’t count." From one sister: "She was always like an umbrella, she covered me." From another: "When I got hurt she would cry for me." She loved without speaking a word. She turned the smallest things into something exciting...lemonade on Labor Day, apple cake of the 4 th of July, oyster stew and hot chocolate when it snowed. A fudgesicle on the porch on a hot day. She was always prepared to make the day special for others. - Constant and compassionate - Loyal and dedicated - Always saw the good in others - Never one to complain - Her soul was sweet and her hugs were big. - She was a protector - A second mom to many - She loved wildflowers - She did not like thunderstorms Her home was always open...and warm...and inviting. Biscuits and pies and sweeter-than-sweet tea were second nature. If she didn’t know you were coming and you stopped by when supper was on the table most likely you left full. But, if she knew you were coming for supper most likely you left miserable. She loved nature. She relished the beauty and complexity of lady slippers and wildflowers and walks around her yard. She saw the world at a level many overlook because of the pace she lived her life. There was nothing fancy about her. She lived and loved in a simple manner. Her simplicity was her strength - and strong she was! In the face of adversity she was relentless but calm. Her love was big...and real...and always there. A funeral service will be held on Sunday, December 29th at 2:00 pm at Corinth Baptist Church, 3658 NC-96, Oxford, NC 27565 with internment in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends immediately following the service in the church fellowship hall.
