Winston-Salem - James Carlton Queen, 83, loving husband, father and grandfather, passed away after a brief illness on June 28, 2011 at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital surrounded by his family.
He was born in Winston-Salem on April 24, 1928 to A. Dewey Queen and Sally Cleary. He attended Hanes High School and served in the Navy at the end of World War II. He graduated Cum Laude from High Point University and received a Master of Social Work degree from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA.
Jim’s kind and generous nature led him to a professional career in service to others in the field of social work. He concluded his career in Rowan County after 21 years as Chief Court Counselor in the Juvenile Justice System.
Jim served as President of the Forsyth County Chapter of the Young Democrats of North Carolina and received various awards for his volunteer work. He was a member of Christ Moravian Church. He enjoyed reading, dancing, and rooting for his beloved UNC Tarheels.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, A. Dewey Queen, Jr.
Jim was happiest when he was surrounded by his family. He was known for always being available to anyone who needed him for advice, counsel, and comfort. He will be deeply missed. There will be a visitation Thursday, June 30th at Salem Funeral Home, 120 S. Main St. from 6-8:00 p.m. A graveside service will be held Friday, July 1st in Salem Moravian Graveyard at 2:00 p.m, with a Memorial Service to follow at 3:00 p.m in the Salem Funeral Home Chapel, 120 S.

To extend sincere sympathy and let you know others are thinking of your family at this time. I went to Hanes High with James and he was a very nice person.

Bobbie, Margaret and I were so sorry to hear about Jim's passing. Tommy called me to let me know. It was so good to have seen Jim last fall at the beach. He looked good and was his, as always, gentile and humorous self. I will always remember him as a good friend and the one I could turn to for advice when it came to work related matters. We are thinking of you and have you in our prayers. Manley
