Mrs. Herrington was born October 31, 1942 in Mt. Olive, MS and passed from this life on March 21, 2019 in Monroe, LA at the age of 76. She was a grocery clerk for over 30 years and she made lots of friends with coworkers and customers during that time, especially at Harvest Foods where she last worked.

She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and a friend to all who met her. She will be greatly missed.
