Caroline Harrington, beloved wife and mother, artist, botany enthusiast and benefactor of the arts, passed away peacefully at her home in Darien Monday (Nov. 23, 2015). She was 76.
She was born in Raleigh, N.C., in 1939. During her early childhood there, she and a close knit group of girls formed a long lasting alliance known as the “Raleigh Girls.” Her family moved to Sumter, S.C., in the early 1950s, where she attended Edmunds High School and met her dear friend, Lucy Gordon.
Upon graduation, she, like her mother and daughters, attended Saint Mary’s College in Raleigh. In 1958 she made her debut in Sumter, S.C. She transferred to the University of Georgia in 1959, pledged Pi Beta Phi and earned degrees in art history and art education.
While at the University, she met and married her sweetheart, Terry Harrington. In 1963, the young couple moved to Savannah where she taught art at Savannah High School. Living for a brief period in Florida and North Carolina in the early seventies, Caroline and Terry with daughters, Susan and Julia, returned to Georgia in 1976.
During the 1980s and 1990s, she was able to pursue her two great passions, art and flowers. Working mainly in the medium of watercolors, she focused on plants and landscapes. Her artwork was exhibited in Georgia, South Carolina and Rhode Island.
Plant interests included the hybridization of daylilies and growing camellias. Her love of botany led her to serve on the board of directors of Kalmia Gardens in Hartsville, S.C. She was invited to become a novice judge for the Savannah Camellia Society, and more recently, she served on the board of LeConte-Woodsmanston Plantation and Botanical Gardens in Riceboro.
She was instrumental in bringing LeConte-Woodsmanston to the list of sites recognized and visited by the Southern Garden Historical Society in 2014.
Her parents were Doyle L. and Katherine Coker Cannon, of Sumter, S.C. Her maternal grandparents were David R. and Jessie Richardson Coker, of Hartsville, S.C. Paternal grandparents were Louis S. and Caroline Forrest Cannon, of North Carolina.
She is survived by her husband, Terry; daughters, Susan Elizabeth Harrington, of Saint Simons Island, and Julia Harrington Conrad, of Santa Fe, N.M.; and a brother, David Cannon (wife, Patsy), of Edisto Island, S.C.; and loving family and friends.
A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday, (Dec. 3) at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Darien. All are welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Kalmia Gardens of Coker College.
