Violet Harrell was born in Colerain and resided most of her life there. She married the love of her life, Willie Harrell. They were the perfect example of Christian love and marriage.
Violet was truly one of a kind! She loved her family unconditionally, teaching understanding, love for one another, and strong Christian faith. Violet was a life-long member of Colerain Baptist Church and remained active until her health began to decline.
She enjoyed cooking, gardening, and traveling. She and Willie enjoyed trips to Rocky Hock to hear Willie play guitar with his brothers, trips to the beach, and relaxing in the swings at the river.
The family was very appreciative for the love and care she received from exceptional caregivers and Hospice services.
Graveside service will be held at Hillcrest Memorial Cemetery in Colerain, NC on Friday, July 15th at 11 am with Pastor Shelby Stephens officiating. The family will receive friends at the home.
