May 20, 1917 ~ January 3, 2021
Born in: Bladen Co., NC
Resided in: Candler, NC
Eunice Caroline Green Harbin, 103, died peacefully on January 3, 2021, after a brief stay at John F. Keever Jr Solace Center in Asheville.
Caroline was born May 20, 1917 in Bladen County, NC, but lived most of her life in Asheville & Candler, NC. Preceded in death by her husband, mother, sister, and brother, she is survived by three adoring children, Randy Harbin (Colleen), Larry Harbin (Nugby) and Kathy Harbin Bryson (Denny), five grandchildren, Randy Harbin Jr., Suzanne Harbin Dilallo, Christopher Harbin, Jennifer Bryson Price, and Heather Bryson Flack, and nine great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Caroline was employed as secretary to the editor of the Presbyterian Journal for many years and was a charter member of Malvern Hills Presbyterian Church. She led an amazing life and was able to enjoy it from her own home, in good health and in good humor, for all but the last two weeks. She was loved and admired by all who knew her and got the greatest joy from helping and showing kindness to others. She was a faithful servant to the Lord, a shining example of his love. She knew what was important in life and was not sidetracked by current trends, of which there were many during her lifetime.
She was the best mother, daughter, sister, wife, and friend that we could have wished for, and she will live in our hearts forever.
In deference to the COVID-19 pandemic, a memorial service will be announced later this year.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the local non-profit children and families agency, Eliada, 2 Compton Drive, Asheville, NC 28806, Main Phone: (828) 254-5356
