Margaret Ramsay Long
Margaret Ramsay Long, 97, of Pleasant Hill, NC died Saturday, June 23, 2018.
Margaret, a native of Northampton County, was the second oldest of five daughters to the late Herman Carlton and Nannie Jones Long. She was also preceded in death by her husband, James Thomas Long, Sr., her son, William Herman Long, and her sisters, Mildred Jordan and Janie Jordan Worrell.
She was a life-long member of Concord United Methodist Church. When growing up, Margaret was considered the tomboy of her siblings. A hard worker her entire life, Grandma Long loved planting and working in her flowers, and enjoyed sitting in her swing on her front porch. Her family and friends considered her to be a great cook. Homemade cornbread, chicken pastry, potato salad and applejacks were a few of her specialties.
Margaret is survived by her son, James Thomas Long, Jr., and his wife, Martha, of Roanoke Rapids, her three grandchildren, Renee L. Aman and her husband, Scott, of Roanoke Rapids, James Thomas "Tommy" Long, III and his fiancée, Lisa Cannon, of Pleasant Hill, and Margaret Joann "Ann" Languell and her husband, Chris, of Davidson; her great grandchildren, Courtney Aman Nicholson and her husband, Eric, Kelli Long, Emily Aman, Christopher Languell, Cole Languell, and Katie, Laura and Hannah Murray. She is also survived by her sisters, Nannie Long Jordan and Faye Long Pierce, both of Roanoke Rapids, as well as several nieces and nephews.
Graveside services will be held Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 11 am at Seaboard Cemetery with the Rev. Ray Pearce officiating.
The family will receive friends after the service at Concord Church.
