Azile was born August 4, 1930, in Thomasville, NC, and was a daughter of the late Willie Marlor Berry and the late Bernice Turner Berry. She retired from West Knitting Mills in Wadesboro as a Quality Control Inspector.

 

Those left to cherish her memory are her son and daughter-in-law, Russell and Debbie Goodwin of Polkton; her daughters-in-law, Sandra Pliescott and husband, Woody of Goldsboro and Phyllis Goodwin of Wadesboro and her son-in-law, Larry Bullard of Rockingham; her grandchildren, Carol Felts, Cathy Carey, Chris Goodwin, Scott Goodwin, Paul Goodwin, Sherry Augustine, Lori Brown, Brandon Bullard, Robert Goodwin and Carrie James; her daughter’s best friend who was like a second daughter, Sandy Moss and husband, David of Monroe; and her great and great-great-grandchildren.

Azile was a special person to so many. She had a gift of seeing the best in all people and loving them for who they are. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She always be remembered for her beautiful smile and the twinkle in her eyes. Her life was a gift from God.
