Carolyn Jean Harris

October 6, 1942 — October 9, 2022

HARRIS, Carolyn J., 80, of Buckingham, VA graduated to Eternal Life with Jesus on October 9, 2022. Carolyn was born in Tarboro, North Carolina to the late Frank Levy Harrell and the late Susan Jones Vaughan. She was also preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband of 60 years, Robert A. Harris Sr.; beloved son Robert (Red) Harris Jr.; brothers Johnny Harrell and Brandon Harrell; and son-in-law Ron Smith. She is survived by her daughters Susan K. Harris and Tammy H. Smith Bush (Robin); daughter-in-law Yvonne Harris; grandchildren: D. Philip Boggs (Jesse), Stephanie S. Rudolph (Raymond), Patric Boggs, Erica S. Moore (Paul), Christopher Boggs, and Courtney Smith; great-grandchildren Sean Boggs, Annaliese Boggs, and Cameron Moore; stepmother Beatrice Harrell; sisters Betty Poggioli and Raven Wongus; brothers Frank Harrell Jr. and Danny Harrell; and numerous loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Carolyn was a dedicated Dallas Cowboy and Elvis fan, nearly 50-year follower of The Young and the Restless, and enjoyed gardening, cooking, reading, her beloved dogs, and, most importantly, quality time with her family and friends. She devoted much of her life and energy as a caregiver to family and in her career as a nurse. She practiced her profession faithfully and was respected for her integrity and her gift for serving others.

Carolyn would like you to know that her work here is done. She received the call, a sort of an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which she will not be returning. This assignment comes with a huge sign-on bonus, a reunion with family and friends she has not seen in a long time.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, October 12 from 6-8pm at Puckett Funeral Home (115 Covington Rd., Farmville, VA 23901). Additional visitation and viewing will be held on Thursday, October 13, from 1-1:45pm, followed by a service at Puckett Funeral Home at 2:15pm before proceeding to Buckingham Community Cemetery (on Route 60 just before Buckingham Courthouse). All are welcome.
