Geraldine Garnet Coker Flowers-Harrelson,
82, the widow of Samuel James “Pete” Flowers and Gerald Walter Harrelson,
went home to be with the Lord on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at her residence.
Mrs. Harrelson was born
the daughter of Whildon Leory Coker and Allie Lee Moore Coker on August
23, 1933 in Andrews. She was a 1951 graduate of Andrews High School.
She was a former employee of Public Savings Insurance and a retired employee
of Oneita Industries. She was a faithful member of Andrews First Pentecostal
Holiness Church where she served in the Church Choir. She was
the founder and number one fan of the Rhett and Allie Fan Club. She
was a devoted wife, loving mother, cherished grandmother, and loyal friend.

her family and friends. “Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing,
but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised” (Proverbs 31:31).

a daughter, Cheryl F. (Ray) Rogers; two grandchildren, Rhett and Allie;
