MOUNT OLIVE -- Kristie Michelle Jernigan Lee, 37, 759 Thunder Swamp Road, Mount Olive, died Sunday evening, Oct. 17, 2010, the result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 20, at Northeast Free Will Baptist Church, with the Rev. Richard Cuddington and the Rev. Sherman Dilley officiating. Burial will follow in Jernigan Family Cemetery located on the family's farm.

The family will receive friends at the residence immediately following the interment.

Kristie, widely known for her baking abilities, her friendliness and genteel spirit, was a longtime member of Northeast Free Will Baptist Church, where she was currently serving as youth director.

She was a parent volunteer at Wayne Christian School in Goldsboro, and was very active in the family business, Jernigan Family Farms.

Kristie is survived by her husband, Dwayne Lee; a daughter, Hannah Lee; and a son, Gavin Lee all of the home; her parents, Douglas and Aileen King Jernigan of Mount Olive; a brother, Allen Jernigan and wife, Brianna, of Mount Olive; a sister, Kimberly Smith and husband, Scott, of Mount Olive; her paternal grandparents, Marvin and Dorothy Jernigan of Mount Olive; her parents-in-law, William Earl and Roxann Lee of Faison and Melville Odom of Mount Olive; and several aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Allen Royce and Joyce Malpass King, and her mother-in-law, Carolyn Pate Odom.

Flowers are welcome; however, because of Kristie's love for children and her involvement with them, memorials to the Northeast Church Youth Group would be appreciated (c/o Amy Best, 1468 Kelly Springs Road, Mount Olive, N.C., 28365).

A Tyndall service.
