GREENSBORO, NC – Agnes Lassiter Lassiter, age 97, of Lasker, went to be with her Lord on Saturday, May 30, 2020 at Camden Place Rehab and Long-Term Care of Greensboro, NC.
Mrs. Lassiter was born on April 28, 1923 to Wiley Nicholas Lassiter and Fannie Britton Lassiter in Northampton County, NC. A member of what has come to be called the “Greatest Generation”, Mrs. Lassiter was dedicated first to the loving care and nurture of her family. She was a tireless supporter of her life-long church, Lasker Baptist, while promoting the wellbeing of the town of Lasker and its residents. Countless cakes and pies poured forth from her kitchen any time someone was in need. A friend to all, Mrs. Lassiter became a faithful caregiver to many elderly residents of the community, enriching their lives while enabling them to live at home for as long as possible. She was loved by many and will be deeply missed.
Besides her parents, Agnes was preceded in death by her loving husband Millard, brother, Robert Thurman Lassiter, half-brother Ryland Draper and half-sisters Troy Davis, and Bessie Draper.
