    ==================================

    Forty years in Public Education in NC. Retired in 1978 after 19 years as of September - Gilford County Schools.

    IN A LOVELY ceremony at the First Associate reformed Presbyterian church Thursday at 5:30 in the afternoon, Miss Sarah Alexander was married to Ernest Plummer Pearce, Jr., of Hamlet and Durham. The officiating minister was Rev. William C. Alexander of Ora, South Carolina, the bride's uncle.

    The marriage vows were spoken before a background of palms and southern smilax, with white gladioli arranged in fan-shaped design and with candelabra holding cathedral tapers.

    Warren Babcock furnished the wedding music, playing a medley of songs before and during the ceremony. "The Wedding March" from the opera "Lohengrin" was used for the processional and Mendelsohn's "Wedding March" for recessional.

    The bride entered the church with her father, Samuel Irvin Alexander, who gave her in marriage. She was joined at the alter by the bridegroom, who was unattended. Ushers were James W. Alexander, brother of the bride, and Edwin Pearce of Hamlet, brother of the bridegroom.

    The bride wore a wedding dress and veil worn by her mother at her wedding 24 years ago. The gown was of white satin, paneled back and front, with under-arm shirring and full flowing skirt. The veil was held in place at the back by a band of tuberoses and rosebuds. The bride's bouquet was of white roses and baby's breath, showered with swainsona.

    Mrs. Alexander, the bride's mother, wore an orchid sheer gown with shoulder bouquet of yellow roses and orchid chrysanthemums.

    Mrs. Pearce, the bridegroom's mother, wore a blue crepe ensemble. Her flowers were white roses.

    Mrs. Pearce is the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel Irvin Alexander of 517 Beaumont avenue. Educated in the Charlotte schools, she took her college course at Muskingum, New Concord, Ohio, graduating in 1940. While at Muskingum she was a member of the F.A.D. club. She taught last year at Fayetteville.

    Mr. Pearce is the son of Mr. And Mrs. Ernest Plummer Pearce of Hamlet. He is a graduate of Wake Forest, class of 1938, doing post-graduate work later at the University of North Carolina. At Wake Forest he was a member of the Golden Bough. He is professor of mathematics in the Durham city schools.

    Following the wedding, a reception was held by the bride's parents at their home. Vases of roses decorated the living room. Receiving with Mr. And Mrs. Alexander were the bride and bridegroom and Mr. and Mrs. E. P. Pearce, parents of the bridegroom. Miss Ediht Alexander welcomed guests at the door.

    A color note of white and green was used in the dining room. A three tier cake graced the center of the table which was spread with a lace cloth and lighted by white candles in silver holders. Sprays of white clematis added to the table effect. An ice course was served. The wedding cake was cut by the bride and was served by Miss Alma Willis Pearce of Hamlet. Also serving were Miss Kathryn Alexander, Miss Ann Zachery, Miss Connie Horn of Monroe and Mrs. B. C. Booe of Winston-Salem.

    Out-of-town guests were Mr. And Mrs. E. P. Pearce, Sr., Edwin, Bill, and Miss Alma Willis Pearce, Mrs. J. H. Hawkins and Mrs. R. M. Galloway of hamlet; Mrs. T. E. Woosley of Clemmons; Mrs. C. P. Miller and Miss Ruth Miller of Salisbury; Mr. and Mrs. Cliff Westmoreland, Miss Katherine Westmoreland, Jones H. Alexander and Miss Joyce Alexander, Mr. and Mrs. S. O. Baker, Beulah, Roberta and Stephen Baker of Huntersville; Miss Edith Alexander of Cramerton; Miss Connie Horn of Monroe; Mr. and Mrs. B. C. Booe of Winston-Salem; Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Ferguson, Miss Nelda and Miss Lindsay Ferguson of Durham; Rev. and Mrs. John W. Link, Prof. Floyd Woodward, Miss Elizabeth Coppedge, Miss Louise Beale of Mt. Pleasant; Mrs. M. M. Morrison, Robert, Boyce and Miss Janie Morrison of Davidson; Miss Minnie Robertson of Derita; Miss Edith M. Stewart of New Concord, Ohio; and Rev. W. C. Alexander of Ora, S. C.

    After a wedding trip to western North Carolina, Mr. and Mrs. Pearce will be at home at Carolina Inn, Chapel Hill. Mrs. Pearce traveled in a blue-grey crepe frock, princess style, with matching accessories.

    Sarah Alexander Pearce

    Greensboro: Sarah Alexander Pearce, age 95, died Thursday, April 30, 2015. She was predeceased by her husband, Elbert Plummer Pearce, Jr. in 1993.

    A celebration of her life will be held Thursday, May 14, 2015 at 2 p.m. in the chapel of First Baptist Church, Greensboro, NC. Interment will follow at Westminster Gardens. The family will receive friends at 303 Meadowbrook Terrace from 5 until 7 p.m. following the services.

    Sarah was born in Charlotte, NC on August 4, 1919 to Naomi Booe Alexander and Samuel Irvin Alexander. She was predeceased by her parents and her siblings, James Ijames Alexander, Kathryn Alexander Pittman and Mary Alexander Murray Tate.

    Sarah graduated from Central High School in Charlotte, and then attended Erskine College in Due West, S.C. before transferring to Muskingum College in Concord, Ohio. After graduation in 1940, she went to the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill for further study in the field of Education, where she met her future husband ?E.P.? only 150 feet from the building where her mother and father had met!

    In the fall of 1940, she began her year of teaching at Fayetteville High School, after which she returned to Chapel Hill to teach at the High School in 1941 on a university grant. She and E.P. married on August 28, 1941. She had her first child, Eddie, in 1942 in Chapel Hill. Her second son, Irvin, was born in Boston in 1945 while her husband was stationed there during WWII. After the war, E.P. became the principal at the High School in Sanford, NC where their first daughter, Sarah, was born in 1947. The family moved to Greensboro in 1949, when E.P. became the director of Instructional Services for the Guilford County Schools. He was promoted to Superintendent in 1959, serving in that capacity until his retirement in 1978. Their fourth child, Susan, was born in 1955.

    Sarah returned to the field of education in 1963 after devoting herself to motherhood for 21 years. She became a Home/School coordinator for the Guilford County Schools through the federally funded Title I program. In this position, she was the liaison between the schools and the children in need. Through donations, she helped acquire glasses, shoes, and supplies for those who otherwise could not afford them. When the federal program ended, she returned to the classroom, teaching math at Jamestown Middle School until her retirement in 1986.

    Sarah was a member of First Baptist Church for 65 years. She belonged to the Love Sunday School Class, the WMU and taught Girls Auxiliary and Training Union Classes. She was a member of a teacher?s sorority, Delta Kappa Gamma. Her greatest passion was researching family genealogy. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Guilford Battle Chapter, and served as its Registrar. She also enjoyed working in her yard and was a member of the Westridge Garden Club.

    She is survived by four children: Edwin Plummer Pearce (Sandy) of Denton, Texas; Irvin Alexander Pearce (Ann) of Raleigh; Sarah Booe Pearce Landry Golden (Coker) of Greensboro; and Susan Maske Pearce Locke (Tommy) of High Point. Her grandchildren are: Christopher Edwin Pearce, Cory Alexander Pearce, Jason Alexander Pearce, Cameron Andrew Pearce, Patrick Gay Landry III, Pearce Armstrong Landry, Alexander Coker Golden, Erik Pearce Sommers and Devon Michelle Sommers Edmonson; and great-grandchildren: Jordan, Payton, Pearce II, Robert, Marshall, and Elanor.

    The family thanks Bland Whitley and Brittney Sigmon for their loving care given to Sarah in her home. Appreciation is also extended to the staff at Camden Place Health and Rehab for the help and attention given to her in the last six months of her life.

    In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Heart Association, 202 Centreport Dr., Greensboro, NC 27409; First Baptist Church, 1000 Friendly Ave., Greensboro, NC 27401; or to Hospice and Palliative Care, 2500 Summit Ave., Greensboro, NC 27405.

    Etta Reid: Saying goodbye to three mentors in 2015
    By Etta Reid Special to News & Record

    On this New Year?s Day, I can say I am proud to have known three great residents of Greensboro who passed away this past year. These friends and mentors of mine will live on because of the impact they had on Guilford County.

    Sarah Alexander Pearce died in April. When I first visited a Daughters of the American Revolution chapter in 1999, she was the chapter registrar, who helped prospective members with their application papers.

    Because I had been active in family research since the 1970?s, Pearce smiled at me and turned it all over to me trusting I would ?dot my I?s and cross my T?s? properly on the extensive pages of request. I did, and eventually she drew me in to assist her as Registrar as the national office starting computerizing correspondence. She was in her early 80s at the time.

    Pearce was very thorough and started from the old method to train me. I would arrive at her home and find everything organized and set in place on her dining room table.

    But before we started, we would visit and share stories of our families and our own lives. We listened with interest to each other?s family-tree stories as well. She was precise and serious as she shared each story, but my interest was never broken. She became a personal friend to me and my husband. She always enjoyed it when I called and told her Jack and I were heading to Yum Yum?s for a hot dog and ice cream and would she like to come along. She knew all of our children by name and knew each of my new grandchildren being born one after the other at that time.

    After serving as co-registrar with her for a year, I became Guilford Battle Chapter?s registrar for another six years. She and I kept close, and she not only loved the stories I wrote but encouraged me. Pearce had many contributions for our community, but one I think of most is the joy she brought to many women by helping them find their ancestor in the Revolutionary War. Those same women today are active in the community as well.
