Barbara Langdon Keller, 75, formerly of Harnett County, died Wednesday following an accident and brief stay at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville. A Graveside Service was held at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 22, 2018 at Harnett Devotional Gardens in Dunn. Family will also host a celebration of life for Barbara to be held in Manteo on May 19.
Barbara was born April 1, 1943 in Harnett County to the late Merchant and Estelle Parrish Langdon. Ms. Keller graduated from East Carolina University and taught school before moving to Manteo, NC, where she raised her family. There she was a member of Mt. Olivet United Methodist Church and later worked as real estate agent.
Barbara loved God, her family, a good adventure, gardening and time by or on the water. She will be remembered as a loving mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend who offered words of encouragement and a warm hug to all she knew. Few who knew her will forget her warm, welcoming smile and laughter that lit up the room.
Barbara is survived by her three daughters, Toni Perrone (and husband Bud) of Brooklyn, New York, Belinda Sukeena of Cary and Gerri Ellington of Morganton; five grandchildren, Kanan Keller, Sam and Zeke Perrone, and Gabby and Danya Sukeena; her brother, Clark Langdon Angier; and many dearly-loved nephews, nieces, and cousins. Barbara was preceded in death by her son, Michael Keller, and her brother, Lacy Langdon.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at Mount Olivet United Methodist Church in Manteo, Saturday May 19th at 3 pm. A reception at the church will follow the service. In lieu of flowers, the family requests those inclined to make donations to Mount Olivet Methodist food pantry.
