Emma Gray Flinchum, born October 17, 2019, passed gently into the arms of Jesus, moments later. During her brief visit on earth, she was held close by her parents and grandparents. She was loved by all who met her, and will be greatly missed. We find peace and comfort knowing our little angel is watching over us in Heaven with her Great-Nana, Betty Gray Ledbetter.

She is survived by her parents, Destiny Nicole Flinchum and Lannie Scott Patterson, Jr; her maternal grandparents, Pamela Jo Scott, Stephen Joel Flinchum, Melissa Baxley Flinchum and Justin Lee Reavis; her paternal grandparents, Heather Patterson and Lannie Patterson; aunts, uncles, and extended family.

Services will be held at 4 o’clock Sunday afternoon, October 20, 2019, at the Kennedy Funeral Home, Robbins, NC, with Pastor Gregg Newton officiating.
