ROSEBORO — Mrs. Clementine Bullard, 82, was born Feb. 14, 1930 in the small community of Beaver Dam in Cumberland County to the late Mary and Hersey Horne. She passed from this life into her eternal rest on Wednesday, Aug. 29, 2012 at Southeastern Hospice House in Lumberton. She married Aaron Bullard on March 28, 1948 and settled just down the road from her home place. She was a strong and dedicated helpmate to her husband of 60 years. Most of her days were spent raising five boys and helping to maintain their family life on the farm. Clementine was a devoted Christian woman, who faithfully attended Evergreen Baptist Church. She taught Sunday school, led the youth choir, and was a member of the WMU for many years. As a grandmother, she went above and beyond for her grandchildren. From something as small as a gift from the store to opening her home to the one in need, Clementine’s heart was overflowing with love and adoration for her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We as a family are and will always be the blessed individuals who were granted the privilege and honor of sharing her life and loving arms. We may have lost a loved one, but Heaven has gained an angel.
The funeral will be held at 3 p.m., on Saturday, Sept. l, in Evergreen Baptist Church with the Dr. Odell Peterson and the Rev. Tommy Honeycutt officiating. Burial will follow in the church Cemetery.
The family will receive friends and relatives on Friday, Aug. 31, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Butler Funeral Home, 6535 Clinton Road, Stedman.
