Katherine (Fields) Posey, age 102 of New Castle, passed away on Wednesday, January 12, 2022.  Katherine was the daughter of the late Joe Ernest & Mammie (Wilson) Fields and was preceded in death by her husband, James W. Posey; sisters, Elma Simmons & Juanita Lenyoun; and a half-sister, Frances Gray.


    On behalf of the family of Katherine Posey, we would like to first acknowledge God for lending us this beautiful vessel. We trust his sovereignty. We would like to acknowledge Phyllis Cummings and her family as well as this community.  You were an extension of our love from Alabama and North Carolina.  We tried to get her to move but this was “home” and she couldn’t be persuaded.  Love is an action word and you chose to love her and for that we thank you!  We also thank you for every act of kindness, and every whispered word of prayer and encouragement.
