Mrs. Northcut was born April 2, 1926, in Cairo, Ga., the daughter of the late James Holly Gainey and Carrie Ann Kincaid Gainey. She passed away Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012, at Horizon Health & Rehab Center, in Manchester. While residing in Jacksonville, Fla., Miss Gainey met her soon-to-be husband, Mr. John Wilson Northcut, at her local church. They married in 1952, started their family and resided there until moving to Manchester in 2006 to be in closer proximity to their daughter.

Mrs. Northcut was a wonderful wife, mother and homemaker. She was an accomplished, self taught, seamstress who also enjoyed doing counted cross stitch. She was known by all to have a servant’s heart and often organized meals for members of the church in their time of need. While in Jacksonville, she attended the Lake Forest Church of Christ and later the Arlington Church of Christ and was a current member of New Union Church of Christ in Manchester.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, John Wilson Northcut, who passed away June 20, 2012; a son-in-law, David Seaborne; and four brothers, Dwight Thomas Gainey, Owen Kincaid Gainey, David Albert Gainey and Redmon Robert Gainey.

Survivors include a son, James Adrian Northcut and wife, Donna, of Jacksonville; daughter, Lee Ann Seaborne of Manchester; three grandchildren, Weston Northcut, Michael Northcut and Jonathan Seaborne and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and loving friends.
