Leola Harrington Marshall

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.  Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.  Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.  Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

Proverbs 31, selected verses


On Friday, March 4, 2022, Mrs. Leola Harrington Marshall, 87, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and sister, went to be with her Lord and Savior while being cared for at Wadesboro Health and Rehabilitation in Wadesboro, just moments after her husband, Jasper arrived in her room to let he know he was there.
