SUMMERFIELD Mr. Jesse Lee Stallings, 75, of Summerfield, NC, passed away June 17, 2019, at his home. The son of the late John Daniel and Lillie Mae Ware Stallings, Jesse was employed by Lanxess Chemical for 26 years.

In addition to his parents, Mr. Stallings was predeceased by his wife Joyce Smith Stallings, sisters Elizabeth Woods, Ida Pruitt, Rosa Mabe, Margaret Stallings, and Faye Hopkins, brothers John Daniel "Junior," Joseph "Joe," David, Charles, and Henry Stallings, and two infant siblings. He is survived by sisters Mary Norman of Stokesdale, Rebecca "Becky" Atkins (Wayne) of Colfax, Brenda East (Ray) of Willow Springs, Brenda Spencer (Layton) of Stokesdale, and numerous nieces and nephews.
