Ms. Marian Jean Harrell Miles, 76 went to be with her Lord and Savior Wednesday evening, January 18th, 2023. She leaves behind a son, Arthur Mitchell Vann (Donna Brown Vann), a daughter, Melissa Miles Taylor (Howard Kent Taylor), two grandsons, Michael Thomas Vann and Justin Parrish and two granddaughters, Stephanie Abrams Simmons and Caitlin Elizabeth Abrams, as well as four great-grandchildren, Alex and Richard Vann, Brayden Tisdale and Kolby Parrish.

She was born in Rich Square, the daughter of Arthur Edward Harrell and Hazel Davis Harrell in her grandparent’s home. Other than a short span of life in Germany, she was a life-long resident of the Hertford and Northampton County area.

She was a geriatric nurse for 30 years, working exclusively in long term care and loved every resident that she cared for. Blessedly, she received that same loving care from many CNA’s and nurses at Pine Forest Rest Home and Accordius Creekside of Ahoskie.

The family would like to personally thank Yevette Anthony, LPN and Mandigo Vambe, LPN as well as the team at Community Health and Hospice for their individual love and care for Marian during her last days. They are a testimony to loving nursing care-care she would be proud of.

Marian’s visitation will be at Garrett-Sykes Funeral Service of Rich Square on Friday, January 20th from 6 to 8 pm and her funeral will be held at Republican Baptist Church, 1422 Republican Road, Windsor on Saturday January 21st at 2pm. Interment will be at Cedar Lawn Cemetery in Rich Square, following.
