Obituary for Clementine Townsend

Clementine Sapp Townsend, also known as “Clem” or “Tine”, daughter to the late Isaac Sapp and Bertha Bell Whitaker, was born on May 24, 1935. She peacefully departed this earthly life on Wednesday, January 30, 2019.

Clem was the oldest of ten siblings, the mother of four children, and three stepsons. She was also a proud grandmother to a host of grand, great- grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.

Clementine graduated from Fuquay Consolidated High School. She attended and graduated from nursing school and took pride in caretaking. Clem spent many years working in the medical field as a surgical and nursing assistant at WakeMed Hospital, along with various nursing homes in the area.

After retirement, she took interest in spending much of her time with her grandchildren, completing word puzzles, and reading the newspaper and Bible. She had a heart of gold, the gift of giving, caring, and sharing wisdom.

Clementine was preceded in death by brothers Isaac Sapp, Jr. and Calvin Sapp, sisters Bettie Jean Rogers and Suretha Crawford, and stepson Mark Townsend. Clementine leaves to cherish her memories: children Walter (Andrea) Davis, Jr., Louis Davis, Jacqueline Townsend, Johnny (LaTricia) Townsend of Raleigh, Levon (JoAnn) Townsend and Sampson Townsend of Rocky Mount, NC; Two sisters Margarine Neal of Washington, D.C. and Brenda Sapp of Willow Springs; Three brothers Curtis Sapp of Raleigh, Alvin Sapp of Apex, and Clyde (Lucy) Sapp of Willow Springs; her grandchildren Deonna Holloway, Walter Davis, III, Jermaine Davis, Shyneka Townsend, Marquesa Davis, Edna Davis, Sydney, Taylor, and William Townsend, and Maya Davis; a host of great- and great-great grandchildren, nieces and nephews, cousins, relatives, and friends.
