Please donate to Meherrin Baptist Church in loving memory of Ola Garris

Mrs. Ola Barnes Garris, age 91, peacefully passed away on March 6, 2024 at ECU Health Roanoke Chowan Hospital, following a life well-lived and filled with love. She was born on November 12, 1932, in Northampton County, North Carolina, to the late Willie and Holly Bridgers Barnes.

Ola dedicated many years as a secretary with Georgia Pacific, displaying diligence and grace in her work. Outside of her professional endeavors, she found joy in simple pleasures, such as playing cards, solving word search puzzles, and cherishing visits from her great grandchildren. She especially cherished trips for chocolate milkshakes with her daughter Joan and the soul-stirring melodies when the Mennonites sang at Pine Forest. Ola was a devoted member of Meherrin Baptist Church. She will be fondly remembered for her warm smile and kind heart. Ola will forever be remembered for her gentle spirit and unwavering love for her family. May she rest in eternal peace.

Thanks for your donation!
