Surrounded by family, Stella Katherine Gunter Brannon peacefully went home to be with the Lord on March 22, 2024.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband George McIver (Mack) Brannon, daughter, Betty Brannon; son, Bobby Brannon; sisters Frances Gunter Wicker, Mary Ethel Gunter Jones, and brothers Arthur Stout Gunter and Asa James (Jimmy) Gunter.

 Katherine was a devoted wife, daughter and beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Katherine is survived by her children, daughter, Linda Brannon Little (Tony) of Chapel Hill, NC; son, George McIver Brannon (Deborah) of Chapel Hill, NC and daughter-in-law, Mary-Anne Brannon of Greenville, NC. She is also survived by 9 grandchildren: Paige Brannon Everette (L.L.); Marty Brannon Bullock; Craig Brannon (Jenn); Abby Herring Bradford (Jack); Christopher Little; Erin Little Williams (Stephen); Matthew Brannon; Mason Brannon and Katharine Brannon Stone (Pat). She is survived by 18 great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Katherine was also loved as a mother by Sharon Wicker Johnson and her family.

Katherine was a founding member of Emmanuel Congregational Christian Church in Sanford, NC during her lifetime. Katherine was a devout Christian and lived her life by example. She was a lifelong member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She attended Louisburg College and worked for the NC Department of Surplus Property.
