Obituary for Somora "Stick" Farrington

Somora Farrington, known to many by her nickname “Stick” was born February 13, 1949. She departed her earthly walk and entered Heaven’s gates on June 16, 2019. Somora had an unwavering faith in God. She was a member of Seed Time Harvest and at one point a member of the choir. For a number of years she had become very involved with the church and assisted with numerous events when her health would allow. She was educated in the Durham public school system and worked at Duke University Medical Center for 35 years where she made countless friends before she retired.

Anyone that knew Somora knew that she had a great love for her family. All you had to do was mention the word grandbabies and the biggest smile would radiate from those beautiful hazel eyes of hers. She was a caring and praying woman who trusted and believed in the name of Jesus.

Somora was predeceased by her loving husband James Robert Farrington and her parents Evelyn “Dusty” and Jesse Reade.
She leaves to cherish her memory her son, Stevie (Cierra) Farrington of Detroit, Michigan; her daughter, Cherie Farrington of Hillsborough, North Carolina; five grandchildren, KayShawn, Ke’Von, and King, Hillsborough, NC; Rosie and Roshelle, Detroit Michigan and a host of family and friends.

She will also be missed by her friends of many years Jean Gregory and Hassie Long. .
