Louise Arrington Ferrell, age 85, died Friday morning, May 22, 2009, at Durham Regional Hospital. She was born in Lineville, AL to the late Charles R. and Omie Taylor Arrington on November 1, 1923.

Mrs. Ferrell was the last surviving member of the five Arrington children. She was an active member of First Baptist Church and the Friendship Sunday School Class.

Mrs. Ferrell devoted countless hours to various activities within the church: the Caring Center; Homebound Ministry; the bereavement committee; and the senior adult luncheons and fellowship, to name a few. Her church was her life.

Surviving are her three loving and devoted daughters: Julie P. Fowlkes; Pat Walker and husband, Wayne; and Linda Smith, all of Durham; six grandchildren: Traci P. Smith Tim; Mary-Beth Sewell Scott; Lori J. Roe Chip; Tricia W. Smith Rob; Amy W. Moore Jody; and Scott T. Walker; and nine great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, William T. Ferrell, Jr.

Condolences for the family of “Louise A. Ferrell”

Condolence from Jaymie Godwin Rutherford on May 23rd, 2009 12:00 am

I never called her by any other name than “Nanny”. Even though I was not technically a member of her famliy, she never seemed to mind. The thing I remember most about her is her big geniune smile, and the happiness in her eyes when she was around all us kids. It was easy to see the love she gave was so much larger than her petite frame.

Condolence from Amy Still on May 24th, 2009 12:00 am

My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

I will remember Nanny’s bright smile and cheerful disposition and the Southern cordiality between she and my grandaddy – calling each other “Mrs. Ferrell” and “Mr. Walker” after all those years of knowing each other. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all. May God comfort you with many memories.

Aunt Louise was such a sweet and loving person. She always seemed to radiate happiness and love when she walked into a room. She was always so kind to me and I wish I could have spent more time with her over the years. All who came in contact with her were truly in the presence of a lovely woman.
