Carolyn Holland King Harrington, 86, of Statesville, N.C., passed away Monday, December 26, 2022.

Carolyn, Mom and Granna, and she was known, was born in Iredell County, N.C., on March 10, 1936, daughter of the late James Harris King and Ina Mae Shaver King. Carolyn attended Central High School and was a graduate of Appalachian State University. She made her career as an educator, with a special love for the younger ones and those in need.

After retirement, she remained involved and active by supporting friends and neighbors, participating in the Field and Stream Garden Club, enjoying family and her church. She loved watching UNC Basketball, playing bridge, traveling with friends and family, and working in the yard and gardens. More than anything, she cherished her family.

    Carolyn was always pleasant to be around. I will miss sitting in the yard talking.

    Not only will she be missed by you her family, but we will greatly miss her at our garden club meetings as well. She hosted our September meeting for years.
