GREENVILLE, NC – Kathryn “Elaine” Turner Gregory (69), of Greenville, NC has claimed victory in Christ over her long battle with cancer on Tuesday, April 16, 2024.

She leaves behind her devoted and loving husband Benjamin Harold Gregory; their son Christorpher Lin Gregory and wife Lisa Gregory; and grandsons, Austin Gregory and Mason Gregory, all of Greenville, NC; and three brothers, Michel (Mike) Reese Turner of Ayden, NC, J. Hughes (Jim) Turner of Washington, NC, and Timothy (Tim) Alan Turner of Greenville, NC.

Elaine was preceded in death by her parents, Coleman Reese Turner and Janie (Jane) Katherine Hughes Turner Latham.

Elaine Gregory was a graduate of Ahoskie High School and Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. She began her educational journey as a teacher for Special Education courses at RL Vann public school in Ahoskie, NC. She then moved her focus to teaching children in Christian Schools starting at Ahoskie Freewill Baptist School in Ahoskie, NC, Countryside Church School in Edenton, NC and Trinty Christian School in Greenville, NC.

Throughout her Christian Life she had another passion for teaching and mentoring women as a Women’s Ministry Leader and teacher at Countryside Church of Christ, Edenton, NC for 10 years and Christ’s Church, Greenville, NC for the last 20 years. Over the last 20 years Elaine was an active member of Christ’s Church, Greenville, NC.

She was a wonderful wife who inspired her husband, loved her son, and nurtured her grandchildren. Elaine’s talent was always teaching. Whether she taught children or adults there was always a theme in her message that reflected her love for Christ.

Over the last 13 years of her life, Elaine has fought the good fight against cancer. Her most inspiring comment to anyone who would listen was “this is what God has for me”. Today, what God has for her is a place in heaven, a home for eternity and a life without pain. She fought the good fight and won the battle smiling.

A visitation is scheduled for Sunday, June 9, 2024, at 3 pm followed by a Celebration of Elaine’s Life at 4 pm. Both the Visitation and Celebration of Life will be held at Christ’s Church, 745 Davenport Farm Road, Winterville, NC 28590.
