Charles Edward Cribb


Charles Edward “Eddie” Cribb, age 88, of Currie NC went to be with Jesus December 15, 2018. Eddie was born February 18, 1930 in Columbus County NC. He was preceded in death by his wife, Sarah Louise, of 42 years; his parents, James and Cindia Cribb and sister, Nona Rea Cribb. Also preceded in death by Rosa Nell Cribb, mother of his girls, Brenda and Debbie.

Eddie is survived by his children: Brenda Meares of Leland NC, Deborah Basinger (Rick) of Currie NC, Bobby Grice of Atlanta GA, Diane Stahl of Kinston NC, Mike Henning Sr. (Judy) of Lake Waccamaw NC; his siblings: brother, James Ervin Cribb (Sandy) of Milwaukee WI, sisters: Sennie Louise Cribb of Milwaukee WI, Laura Eloise Lanier of Hope Mills, NC, Edna Mae Scheibengraber (Frank) of Apple Valley MN, Eva Congleton (Alex) of Wilmington NC and a host of nieces, nephews, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandson.

Eddie was a loving and very caring husband, father and grandfather. His love for his work kept him going for 24 years, retiring in 1995 from Mundys Maintenance at Invista Corp. He enjoyed fishing and hunting but most of all, he enjoyed his children and grandchildren. He will be dearly missed but we are at peace just knowing that Daddy is at peace. Now in his forever home with Jesus.

Many thanks to the Lower Cape Fear Hospice, New Hanover Regional Medical Center and a special thanks to Dr. John Rommel for his compassionate guidance with Daddy’s care. “Go Tarheels!”

    Daddy, in two days it will be four years since you went to Heaven. It seems like 40 years at times. I knew it would be hard but I never thought it would be this hard. I will cherish those last years of being there and taking care of you. It was truly the best gift of my life, to be there for you. I love you so much, Daddy. You will never be forgotten. You were the best Daddy anyone could ask for. I'm so thankful you & Mama, are together in the house of our Lord. I love you both, Endless. Your baby girl
