Winter Holiday 05


Tilda McMahan

December 18, 2018

Tilda McMahan, age 51, of Lenoir, formerly of Burnsville, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at Charlotte Medical Center.  A native of Caldwell County, she was a daughter of the late Till and Hazel Wilson.  She was also preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Charlie and Irene McMahan and her maternal grandparents, Henry and Coleen Cassidy.  Tilda was a member of Claymound Baptist Church.  She worked at Gateway Nursing Home for many years, where she touched the lives of the residents there, knowing them all by name and bringing smiles to the faces.  Tilda was a "hoot" and could make anyone laugh.  "God needed more laughter in Heaven, so he called our Mom home." 

            Left to cherish her memories are her children: Misty Lee Beach of Lenoir and Bradley Darrell Beach, Jr. of Hudson; the father of her children, Bradley "Pug" Beach of Lenoir; siblings: Denise Shew (Kenneth) of Lenoir, Kenny McMahan (Jennifer Burnette) of Spruce Pine, and Heather Henson and Jeremiah McMahan, both of Burnsville; nieces and nephews: Cody Shew, Linda Shew Hodge (Westlee), Justin McMahan (Jordan) and Katie McMahan. Several cousins also survive, including Candy McDonald, who was also a very close friend to Tilda. 

           Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday, December 31st at Claymound Baptist Church.  Dr. Cody R. Shew will officiate.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.  The family will receive friends from 1 until 2 p.m. prior to the funeral service at the church.        

            In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the funeral home to help with expenses.
