​Esta Mae Mason



Esta Mae Mason, age 92, passed away peacefully at the South Seminole Hospital in Longwood, Florida on Friday, November 2, 2018.

She was born on August 26, 1926, in Wallace, NC to the late Hill Teachey Sr. and Sarah Mobley Teachey. She was also preceded in death by her husband of 54 years, Thurman Mason Sr.; her brother Hill Teachey Jr. and her sisters Mary Price, and Sarah Rivenbark.

Esta was a loving mother and caring grandmother, sister and friend. She enjoyed the simplest things in life but her greatest joy was family. Esta raised their family in the Philadelphia, PA area where they eventually settled during the mid-1950’s. Being truly a woman of uncommon character, beauty and grace, Esta was “an instrument of God’s love on this earth.” She was a friend to all, a strong yet gentle and loving presence to all who were blessed to know her. Esta will surely be missed but cherished memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.

Esta is survived by her children, Thurman Mason Jr. of Sanford, FL and Cheryl DiBartolo of Blackwood, NJ; sisters Geraldine Franz and Betty Kelly of Wallace; 8 grandchildren; 6 great grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family that loved Esta dearly.

The children will receive Esta’s friends and family from 11:00 am to 12 Noon on Saturday November 10, 2018 at the Wallace Pentecostal Church, 311 S. Cumberland Street, Wallace, NC.

The funeral service will follow at 12 Noon on Saturday, November 10, 2018 at the church. Burial will follow at Riverview Memorial Park in Watha.
