Obituary For Mrs. Emma Christine McDougal

Mrs. Emma Christine Allen McDougal quietly departed this earthly life on January 12, 2022, peacefully at 2608 Maxine Drive, High Point, NC. Our genuine Queen was born on May 13, 1933, in Ridgeway, SC to the late James E. and Katie Allen. She was also preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Foster McDougal; a daughter, Cynthia Allen; seven siblings, Katie Brown, Maggie Wage, Charlotte Turnipseed, Henretta Alston, James Allen, Leroy Allen, and David Allen.

Affectionately known by family and friends as “Doll,” she received her early education in Fairfield County before relocating to High Point, NC in 1948, where she graduated from William Penn High School, Class of 1950.

Her Christian upbringing started at an early age, where she was a member of Calvary Baptist Church in High Point, NC, where she served as an adult Sunday School teacher, and member of the Adult Choir.

On January 28, 1962, Emma united in marriage to Foster McDougal, Jr. She was a strong devoted and loyal wife and mother. Emma was employed at Fly Back for many years and Anvil Brand, before going to Woodmark Originals where she retired in May 1998.

Fraternally, Emma was a Past Worthy Matron, Senior Delight and Life-time member of White Rose Chapter #157, Order of the Eastern Star; Past Most Ancient Matron of Guiding Light Court #3, Heroines of Jericho and Honorary Past Grand Most Ancient Matron of the North Carolina Grand Court, Heroines of Jericho; Past Princess Commandress of Nightingale Court #3, Order of Cyrene Crusaders; and the first Past Illustrious Commandress of Abdalla Court #166, Daughters of Isis.

“Doll” was also a dedicated mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and jewel of a friend. She loved reading the Bible, attending church, cooking, baking, sewing, traveling, shopping, and doing yard work.

She leaves a legacy of love to numerous people whom she loved dearly. She leaves to reflect on her love: two daughters, Sandra Hines of Las Vegas, NV, and Tamica (Thomas) Seegars of Greensboro, NC; one son, Richard (Sophia Lynn) McDougal of High Point, NC; two brothers-in-law, Daniel McDougal of Fayetteville, NC, and Alexander (Julie) McDougal of Augusta, GA; seven grandchildren, Michelle, JD, Latisha (Anthony), Tasha, Bryon, Jaslyn, and Jayden; thirteen great-grandchildren, Andrel (George), Christopher, Jamie, Jerold, Jashawn, Monica, Makayla, Makeil, Calien (MiaJanae), Amia (Victor), Ryan, Jessica, and Alexis; seven great-great-grandchildren, Jacob, Daniel, Geovanni, Darian, Zamer, Xavier, and Jaiden; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
