Amelia Paige Lemons Obituary

Amelia Paige Lemons

January 11th, 1991-July 1st, 2024

Amelia Paige Lemons passed away unexpectedly on July 1st, 2024, in Chatham County, NC. She was only 33 years old. Her family is shocked and deeply saddened by her sudden death. The world will never be quite as bright without Amelia and her contagious smile.

Amelia is survived by her beloved son, Silas Alvarez of the home; parents Gregory and Ronda Lemons of Pittsboro; two older sisters Autumn Pyrtle (Matthew) of Statesville, Ashton Dispennette (Dillon) of Siler City, younger brother Tyler Lemons of Pittsboro; paternal grandmother Helen Lemons of Pittsboro; nieces Athena and Colette Dispennette, Leighton and Collins Pyrtle; nephews Gage Dispennette and Beckett Pyrtle; Silas’ father, Jose Alvarez of Carrboro and many extended family and friends. She is preceded in death by her paternal grandfather, Slade “Pete” Lemons of Pittsboro, and maternal grandparents, Clarence and Irene Morris of Pittsboro.

Amelia was born in Durham, North Carolina and grew up in Pittsboro. She graduated from Northwood High School and attended UNC Greensboro, UNC Charlotte and earned her degree at Alamance Community College in early childhood education.  She went on to become the assistant director and toddler teacher of Learning Lemondrops Child Care Center where she made every single child that she came into contact with feel special, safe and loved. She truly loved her “lemondrop babies”.

Amelia said often that all she ever wanted to be was a mom and the greatest blessing in her life was her son, Silas Hayes. She loved him more than anything in this world and we know she will always be watching over him.

She was a fun, spirited soul who had many passions. As a young girl she channeled her competitive nature playing basketball. Amelia had a love for Carolina basketball and cheered for the Tar Heels every season.  Every day for years, you could always see Amelia and her younger brother, Tyler, playing on their home court.  Amelia would never skip a chance at singing karaoke or in her younger years, making up a dance routine with her sisters to perform.  Amelia was one of the funniest people you’d ever meet and had the quickest comebacks of all time.

Amelia was a beautiful person inside and out. Her smile was so stunning it would light up the whole room when she entered and has been something most people think of first when remembering her.  Amelia was kind and passionate. She always saw the best in people and was the first person to stand up for others.

A private family service will be held followed by a special Celebration of Life service.

Amelia cared so deeply for her family and friends, but more than anyone or anything else in this world, her son, Silas. For this reason, the family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to a college fund for Silas Hayes Alvarez at any SECU branch.
