Age 77.
Died 01/05/2024.

Andrea Mancour
It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of Andrea Jackson Mancour, longtime Rougemont resident, after surgery at Duke Regional Hospital. The multiple infections were too much for her exhausted body, and despite the valiant and compassionate actions of the staff she passed away at noon of January 5th 2024.
Andrea was 77 when she passed, and was attended by her youngest son and caregiver Andrew Luke Mancour (Rougemont), son Chester L Matthew Mancour and wife Jennifer Mancour (Timberlake), and eldest son Terry Lee Mancour and wife Laurin Council Mancour (Rougemont).

She is survived by a brother, Charles W. Jackson of Swartz Creek Michigan, her three sons, five grandchildren (Hayden, Morrigan, and Owen Mancour of Rougemont, Shawn Mancour of Timberlake, and Chelsea Freeman of Creedmoor) and one great-grandchild, Marley Rose Freeman.

Originally a native of Flint, Michigan and an attendee of Michigan State University, Andrea and her beloved late husband Irving Leslie Mancour moved their family to Durham North Carolina in 1977, where she pursued a career as a paralegal. Across her rich and rewarding life she had affiliations with several service organizations, including the Girl Scouts of America, the Boy Scouts of America, the American Red Cross, the Ruritans, and many and diverse local charities in the Durham area. She was a long time member of Christus Victor Lutheran Church in Durham and then later in life she was a member of the Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church. Her love and affection for animals, community service, and providing a loving home for her family were the focus of her life.

A memorial service for Andrea has been set for Saturday January 20, 2024 at 2pm at Mount Bethel United Methodist church in Bahama, NC.

Our Promise

Apples to Apples

Just like all other licensed funeral homes in North Carolina, City of Oaks Cremation, LLC is regulated by the NC Board of Funeral Service.

The same laws that apply to the big corporate funeral homes also apply to the modest independently owned firms like ours. All crematories in North Carolina, regardless of who owns them, are inspected annually by the state and must adhere to the same rules and laws.

Genuine Care

We're committed to providing families within our community unsurpassed service before, during and after the time of loss.

Our staff will provide clear communication to your family through each step as we move forward from the original phone call notifying us of a death to the time we deliver the urn back to your family. We will treat your family with the utmost respect, as we honor the wishes of your loved one.

We promise to make this process affordable and as endurable as possible.

Our Services

Direct Cremation


Nobody likes surprise costs added in at the last minute. We guarantee you will not find any hidden charges here. We include everything you need for a simple or direct cremation. Simple, affordable and reliable. We have not changed the cost of our direct cremation service since we opened City of Oaks in 2012.

Cremation with Solidified Remains


We offer the option of choosing how you receive your loved ones remains. Selecting our Direct Cremation with Solidified Remains option is a beautiful way to transform cremated remains into 40-60 “stones” that you can hold.

Cremation with Visitation


City of Oaks Funeral Home and Cremation provides an affordable cremation option with onsite visitation. Nobody likes surprise costs added in at the last minute. We guarantee you will not find any hidden charges here. Simple, affordable and reliable.

Immediate Burial


An immediate burial has the same end result as a traditional burial; however, we have eliminated the extra (sometimes unnecessary) services prior to getting to the cemetery. Not everyone wants an open casket for viewing or a limousine for the family. Despite the term immediate, we can move as fast as you need or as slow as you like. This option simply allows you to save money by eliminating some of the fancy extras at the funeral home.

Traditional Funeral


We offer the same traditional funeral services as the big corporately owned funeral homes in the area; however, we cost about half the amount. You might consider a traditional funeral service if your family is looking for an open casket visitation, a traditional church service or a funeral service in the funeral home's chapel. A traditional funeral service can be altered to fit the needs of your family.

Green Burial


This establishment is one of a select number of funeral homes who meet the criteria for providing green funeral service by the Green Burial Council; a tax-exempt, nonprofit organization working to encourage environmentally sustainability in the field of funeral service. Our Green options allow for a funeral to take place without the use of toxic and non-biodegradable materials/chemicals.



As an alternative to traditional cremation, City of Oaks Funeral Home also offers Aquamation. The Aquamation process, often referred to as alkaline hydrolysis, uses a solution of water and potassium hydroxide to facilitate natural decomposition.
