Obituary for Agnes Howell Vann

Agnes Howell Vann passed away at the SECU Hospice House on February 20th in Smithfield. She was born on October 21, 1921 in Nash County to Ella Blizzard Howell and Joseph (Jody) Howell. Agnes was one of 9 children. She was preceded in death by her husband, Sam Vann; one son, Gary E. Vann; and 7 brothers and sisters.

Agnes faced each and every day with positivity and resolve. She was raised in Duplin County, but moved to Goldsboro at the age of 25 where she lived almost all of her adult life. Agnes found employment at Ashe Street Pharmacy where she worked as a pharmacy technician for 30 years until the store closed. At age 61, when most people are considering retirement, she began working as a pharmacy technician at Raper Drugs, where she remained for thirty-three and a half years. Agnes finally retired from Raper Drugs in April 2016. Agnes found so much enjoyment working with her coworkers and meeting, socializing, and helping her customers. Unlike most people, Agnes truly loved the career she chose and spent sixty-three and a half years helping and serving others.

As much as Agnes loved her job, she loved her family and friends much more. She was totally devoted and dearly loved her children and all of her grandchildren. All of her grandchildren, (great-grandchildren included), say, “Grandma, we love you and will miss you so much.” Her daughter says, “Mama, I love you with all my heart and you will be with me always. You rest with the Lord and His angels now. You deserve it.”

Ms. Vann is survived by one daughter, Kay V. Ferrell and husband, Donnie of Garner, NC and sister, Elizabeth H. Worrell of Mount Olive. She is survived by four grandchildren; Dana Batey Etheridge and husband, Mark of Clayton; Ashleigh Ferrell Duty and husband, Chris of Garner; Sherry Vann of Goldsboro, and Travis Vann of Goldsboro. She is survived by three great-grandchildren, Karolyne Batey of Clayton, Wyatt Etheridge of Clayton, and Maebry Duty of Garner. She is also survived by her daughter-in-law, Debbie Vann Barrow of Goldsboro.

The family will welcome family and friends at Seymour Funeral Home in Goldsboro, NC from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Sunday, February 24. The service will begin directly at 2 pm in the chapel of Seymour Funeral Home. Directly thereafter, burial will be held at Wayne Memorial Park.
