Sara Hubbard Fairey passed away on Tuesday May 30, 2023 at her home in Myrtle Beach. She
was 91 years old.
Sara was born in 1931 in Salisbury N.C. to Henry Chatham Hubbard and Esta Pardue
Hubbard and was the last survivor of 11 children. She moved to Durham in 1955 where she met
and married Robert (Bob) L. Fairey of Durham in 1956. June 2nd would have been their 67th
Surviving are her husband Bob, son Robert (Bo) L. Fairey Jr. and wife Diane, son Joel Fairey
and wife Elizabeth, grandchildren Ivan and Isabel, sisters-in-law Nancy Forbis and Jayne
Hubbard, and many nieces and nephews.
Sara was a loving and caring wife and mother with a unique ability to light up a room. Voted
the wittiest Boyden High School senior, she was always ready for fun. She loved hosting a
houseful on Christmas Eve, time on the beach with family, and attending Duke basketball
games. Sara was a tremendous cook and was always there to bring meals to friends and
neighbors in need. She will be greatly missed.
Thanks so much to Patriot Hospice of Myrtle Beach and the wonderful nurses and caretakers
that made the final months much easier. (Samantha, Tammy & Kelly). Arrangements are
provided by McMillan-Small Myrtle Beach. There will be no service.
