Obituary for Larcenie Lunsford McFarland

Durham: Larcenie Lunsford McFarland, 87, died Monday, April 30, 2018, at her home. She was born in Person Co, the daughter of the late Cheatham Lunsford and Elsie Rogers Lunsford. She was preceded in death by her son, Tony Lyn McFarland; brothers, Herbert and Jack Lunsford; and one grandchild, Jason Crawford.

For fifty years Larcenie was a faithful member of Mt. Hermon Baptist Church. She was the first female deputy sheriff in Durham County, before she transferred to the Durham Police Department where she served as Executive Secretary in the Vice Division for 20 years.

Larcenie loved bluegrass music and loved to dance. She was a regular at the bluegrass dances in Person County. We can celebrate today knowing that she is walking and dancing again, now that her journey on earth is complete

Two years ago when a stroke left Larcenie unable to live independently, the visits, cards, and telephone calls from friends and family meant so much to her. Special thanks to Carol and Jackie, who cared for her night and day during this time. You were her daily companions and you became part of our family.

Larcenie is survived by her daughters, Jeanette McFarland Martin and husband Tommy, Eleanor McFarland Crawford; sons, R. Dwight McFarland and wife Jennifer, Carl Bland McFarland; sister, Rachel Clayton and husband Billy; brother, Donald Lunsford; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

The family will receive friends at 10:00 am on Thursday, May 3rd at Mt. Hermon Baptist Church and the funeral service will follow at 11:00 am. Burial will be in the church cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Mt. Hermon Baptist Church, 4511 Old NC 10, Durham, NC 27705.

The family is being assisted by Clements Funeral Service, Inc. in Durham. Send condolences online to www.clementsfuneralservice.com.
