Barbara Brown Harrell, age 71, passed away peacefully at home and surrounded by her family on Monday, January 3, 2022.

Barbara grew up in Oak City, NC where she enjoyed the simple things that the farm life afforded. She was a woman of strong faith that lived her life by prayer. She was a prayer warrior that would pray for anyone she met, those she loved, or anyone that was on her heart.
