ZEBULON - Edith “Juel” Privette Gay died May 31, 2011 at her home in Pearces, North Carolina surrounded by her family and friends. She was born on November 29, 1923 as the eldest daughter of the late Herbert and Thettie Belle Privette.

She was married to Hilliard “Biddy” Jasper Gay for 59 years until he preceded her in death in 2001.

She was lovingly cared for by Ann Hill and Mae Gresham. She loved spending time with her family, sharing vegetables from the garden, quilting, and listening to gospel music.  “Miss Juel” was a life-long member of Pearce Baptist Church, where she taught the beginners Sunday School class for over 20 years.
