Celebrating The Life Of Loved Ones

Adelle’ “Addie” Janine Hargest

Adelle’ “Addie” Janine Hargest, 4 ½ months old of Albemarle died Thursday morning, May 24, 2018 at home. Funeral services will be at 10:00 AM Monday, May 28, 2018 at West Albemarle Baptist Church. Rev. Adam Hatley will officiate and burial will be in Cedar Grove Methodist Church Cemetery, Norwood. Visitation will be from 6:00 PM – 8 PM Sunday, May 27, 2018 at Stanly Funeral & Cremation Care of Albemarle.

Born January 11, 2018 in Cabarrus County, she was a daughter of Michael and Jessica Russell Hargest. She was then transferred to Levine Children’s Hospital NICU for two weeks prior to coming home. Precious Addie was born with Trisomy 13 and a heart defect. She loved for the NICU nurses and her parents to sing and read books to her. Her favorite song in the morning was You Are My Sunshine sung by her mother. Her brother, Thomas would go to her room to check on her when he woke up in the morning and called her “Pretty Girl”. She loved for her Daddy to feed her after he got home from work. She shared her love by blowing kisses to her family. She will be remembered as a special blessing of God. Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I’m fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

The family would like to thank the staff at Levine Children’s Hospital and Hospice and Palliative Care of Cabarrus County.

She is survived by her parents, Michael and Jessica Russell Hargest, brother Thomas Hargest, Paternal grandparents Scott & Judy Hargest, Maternal grandparents Kevin & Cindy Russell, Paternal uncle Matthew Hargest, Maternal  Aunt & Uncle Jacki & Nick Helms and Maternal cousins Eva Claire and Susanna Helms.

Memorials may be made to Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Levine’s Children Hospital, Carolinas Healthcare Foundation, 208 East Blvd., Charlotte, NC 28203.

    I can’t find the words right now to let you know how sorry I am for the loss of your baby girl Addie. You are experiencing a level of pain and loss that I can’t imagine. I am praying God will bring you and your family comfort during this very difficult and painful time.

  • Julie Edwards Posted May 29, 2018 9:36 pm

    My deepest sympathy to you and your family.

  • ph Posted May 31, 2018 11:05 pm

    I’m extending my sincere sympathy to the Hargest family. May you find comfort from The Holy Scriptures at Act 24:15 promises that you will welcome back your daughter Adelle “Addie” in the resurrection. Mark 5:38-43 provides a real life account of Jesus resurrecting a young girl. This is s preview on why we can be assured of a happy future for your dear Addie.

Stanly overwhelmingly met or exceeded our family’s expectations. Family and friends both expressed how thoughtful, caring and professional they were. We’re glad you’re in Locust!


We never felt hurried or rushed in any way even though they had other funerals that day.  Everyone at Stanly Funeral Home made us feel like we were family and did everything they could for us in this most trying time in our lives.


Everyone went out of their way to make sure that every detail was good with me.  Their kindness, patience and love they show is superior.  Stephen Aldridge and his ENTIRE staff are the best.


The whole staff was wonderful but Stephen Aldridge was excellent, even sending us a note one month later.
