Obituary for Carolyn Emily Herrington

Carolyn E. Herrington, 89, of Moss Point, MS, passed away on Thursday, December 14, 2017 in Pascagoula, MS. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trust, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
This is how Carolyn “Goggi” Herrington lived her life. She was patient, kind, and always provided for and protected her loved ones. She was the Matriarch of the family that always made sure everyone had plenty to eat, and that everyone was taken care of. All of the children loved Goggi, and would’ve lived there if they could’ve. To others she was known as Sister Carolyn, one of the most talented pianists they ever heard. She was faithful to God, and helped all those in need. She was the greatest example of what a true Christian should be. Faithful, humble, caring devoted, loving her family, church, but most of all Jesus, her Lord and Savior. She was a charter member of Orange Grove Assembly of God where she was the pianist for many years. She attended East Side Assembly for the past several years where she also served as the pianist. One of her favorite passions was playing piano for the Gospel Friends at singings for over 16 years. However, her all time favorite was playing and singing at the Mission of Hope once a month. She was a great cook, and the best caregiver a person could ask for. As the family was discussing what to write for her obituary; we came to the realization that there wasn’t enough paper in the world to describe how beautiful she was inside and out. Her absence from this earth leaves us with a very dark void in our hearts. However, we know that God needed her more. She’s finally able to reap the rewards for her endless service to the Lord our God. We will always love and miss her, but knowing that she is up in heaven looking down on us. We know, Carolyn (Goggi) (Sister Carolyn) Herrington is still and will always be the family Matriarch. We love you and miss you dearly.
Carolyn was preceded in death by her first husband, Lloyd Taylor; her husband of 56 years, Charles Robert Herrington; son, Dewayne “Tater Bug” Taylor; parents, Reverend Ira and Margaret Bang; son-in-law, Ray Hayes; sister and brother in law, Annie (Boots) and Robert (Bob) Gordon; and sister in law, Ruth Bang.
She leaves a legacy of love to her children, Judy Hayes of Moss Point and Mark (Paula) Herrington of Forts Lake; daughter-in-law, Shelia Taylor of Moss Point; five grandchildren; Dan (Paula) Taylor, Sam (Kerri) Taylor, Kakki Hayes Barrow, Ty (Rachel) Taylor and Hannah Herrington; six great-grandchildren, Travis (Samantha) Taylor, Zachary Taylor, Cruz Barrow, Cayman Taylor, Liam Taylor, Lloyd Taylor and soon to arrive, Pearl; one great-great-grandchild, Carrie Annalee Taylor; brother, Hebert L. Bang; and special aunt, Patsy Seaman; along with numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
