Annie Margaret Rountree

 Annie Margaret Rountree, 76, died Sunday, June 23, 2024, in Elizabeth City Health & Rehabilitation.

 A lifelong resident of Gates County, she was the daughter of the late Charlie Walter and Annie Margaret Felton Rountree.

 Miss Rountree attended grammar grades and high school in both Gates and Chowan counties. She completed her Bachelor’s Degree at East Carolina University (ECU) in 1969 and her Master’s Degree in Education, also from ECU, in 1970. She was a retired vocational counselor with the Gates County School System. In recent years, because of her pride in education, she thoroughly enjoyed showing off her 1970 ECU class ring and admiring its beauty.

 A member of Zion United Methodist Church, she cherished fellowship with her community and church family. She also enjoyed membership in the Gates County Historical Society, the Betsy Dowdy Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, and the George Durant Chapter of the 17th Century Colonial Dames.

 Among her large extended family, survivors include cousins, Myrtle Felton Etheridge, Carolyn Rountree Eaton, Joe Edge Felton, and Walter S. “Shep” Felton; and many dear friends from her years in education, singing in various church programs, and her lifelong involvement in her community.

 Funeral services will be held Saturday, June 29th, at 2:00 p.m. in Zion United Methodist Church and will be conducted by her pastor, The Rev. Mark Cannon, and former pastor, The Rev. Dr. Tracy Clayton Sexton. Friends and family may visit for a time of fellowship in the church social hall immediately following the service.

 The burial, beside her parents, at Eure Christian Church Cemetery, will follow the reception, and the graveside rites will be conducted by Pastor Wade Bennett of Eure Christian.

 Memorial contributions may be made to one’s favorite church or charity.
