Emily Mae Elliott Plemmons

Emily Mae Elliott Plemmons, 89, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Saturday, December 04, 2021 at Mountain Ridge Wellness Center.


A native of McDowell County, she was born September 27, 1932 to the late Benjamin and Eunice Cameron Elliott.

She is also preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Rev. J.D. Plemmons; and five siblings, Margaret, Ben, James, Charlie, and Gary Elliott.

Emily was a dedicated homemaker who loved her children and family immensely. As a preacher’s wife, she faithfully supported her husband in the ministry by often helping prepare his messages. Together, they founded Ashworth Road Missionary Baptist Church in 1970, of which she is still a member. She never looked for recognition for her faithful service to her Lord or her family.

Those left to cherish her precious memories are her four children, Don Plemmons (Kathy), Brenda Plemmons, Sandra Painter (Wayne), and Jeff Plemmons (Donita); twelve grandchildren; nine great grandchildren; two brothers, Grady Elliott and Troy Elliott; and sixteen nieces and nephews.

A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, December 07, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. in the Chapel of Beam Funeral Service with Mr. Jim Rhinehart officiating. Burial will follow at Oak Grove Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 10:00 until 11:00 a.m.
