Obituary of Reba G. Abernathy Fields

Ms. Reba Fields left us and went to her new home in Heaven on July 8, 2021.


She was born Feb 22, 1931, to the late Ms. Ruby (Bull) Gray and Dewey Hastings Gray.


In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister Barbara Nance and brothers J B Gray, Zane Gray, Don Gray, and Gary Gray.


Reba lived her entire life in Colfax N.C.   She is survived by daughter Brenda Robertson (Bobby) and son Mike Abernathy (Terry); 4 grandchildren; Todd Venable (Tammi), Jonathan Abernathy (Brittani), Jessica Robertson (Ryan) and Andy Robertson; and 10 great grandchildren.   She is also survived by her sister Catherine Payne and brother Herb Gray (Linda).


She was a great mother and “Mamaw” to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.   She was loved by everyone that met her.

She got to stay in her home for the last ten years due to her beloved sister n law, Aunt Billie, who passed in 2019.   In the last year of her life, she lived at Countryside Manor (Stokesdale, NC).   The entire staff gave her excellent care.   Special thanks to Kelly, Kim, Cindy, and Norma, nurses at the facility.    Also special thanks to Scheryl Lattanzio and our friends who have been there for us.



The family will receive family and friends at Pierce Jefferson Funeral Home in Kernersville, NC on Monday, July 12, 2021, from 1 to 2:30pm, which will be followed by a graveside service at Shady Grove Wesleyan Church in Colfax, NC.
