Born on November 21, 1949, in Onslow County, Ella's life was a vibrant tapestry woven with compassion, vitality, and an unwavering spirit that touched countless lives. Her final moments were spent in the serene surroundings of Carteret County, enveloped by the love of her family.Ella's journey was marked by a profound commitment to caring for others, a path she pursued with fervor after earning her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Throughout her illustrious career, she attended to the needs of numerous patients across several states, leaving an indelible mark on each life she touched. Ella's compassionate nature found its pinnacle in her work at Western State Hospital in Seattle, Washington, where her nurturing presence was a source of comfort and healing.But it was Ella's visionary leadership in helping to establish the Luckett House that truly showcased her dedication to humanity. This haven became a place of solace and dignity for the most at-risk individuals, offering them the warmth of a real home environment. Ella's unwavering commitment to her profession and the people she served was a testament to her spirited and loving nature.Beyond her professional achievements, Ella was a woman of many passions. Her green thumb brought to life a world of vibrant flowers and verdant gardens, her love for fishing and wildlife reflected her deep connection with nature, and her passion for photography captured the essence of the world around her. Ella's extensive collection of photographs stands as a visual legacy of her ability to find beauty in every moment and every creature.Ella's life was a living example of the power of love and selflessness. She was a source of strength and inspiration to her beloved husband, George Stephens, and their daughter, Angela Becker. Her role as a grandmother to Alex and Austin Becker was filled with joy and laughter, and the sparkle in her eyes was never brighter than when she was with her great-grandchildren.Ella's sibling bonds were equally strong, with her brother Richard Bright and his wife Dorothy, and her sister Dolly McIntosh and her husband Danny, all sharing in the rich tapestry of her life. Niece Cheryl Salter, Molly Brown, and nephew Mack McIntosh, along with numerous cousins and extended family members, felt the warmth of Ella's generous spirit. Her family, a vast network of individuals bound by love, will carry forward her legacy of kindness and compassion.The words that best describe Ella—selfless, spirited, loving—only begin to scratch the surface of a life lived with boundless enthusiasm and an unquenchable desire to make the world a better place. Her story is not one of sadness, but a celebration of a life that serves as a guiding light for all who had the privilege of knowing her.As we reflect on Ella's life, let us not dwell on the loss but be motivated by her example. Let her memory inspire us to cultivate our gardens, to care deeply for our fellow beings, and to capture the beauty of the world through our own lenses. Ella's legacy is a call to action, to live with purpose, to cherish every connection, and to spread love with the same relentless energy she did.Ella Louise Bright-Stephens may have departed from this earthly realm, but her spirit remains an unwavering flame that will continue to illuminate the paths of those she has left behind. Her life's work and passions will forever be etched in the hearts of her family and the many lives she enriched. Let us honor her memory by embracing the world with open arms and a generous heart, just as she did every single day.Condolences and life tributes may be sent to the family at www.noebrooks.net.Arrangements by Noe-Brooks Funeral Home, Morehead City, NC.

William Russell Barrows

Dec 15, 1937 - Jan 29, 2024

location-icon

Morehead City, NC

Cape Carteret- William Russell Barrows passed peacefully at the age of 86, Monday, January 29, 2024, in hospice for less than a day, at Carteret General in Morehead City, North Carolina. Although Bill only lived in North Carolina for the last couple of years his family has history here. His great-grandfather Daniel Ash had served in Carteret county with the Union Army 9th Regiment Vermont Infantry in the final days of the Civil War. Bill was born at home in Ferrisburgh, Vermont, December 15, 1937, the ninth of eleven children of Rachel Jerome Brooks Barrows. He went ice fishing with his mother when he was only two days old wrapped in blankets and placed in an apple box near the wood stove in a shanty on Lake Champlain. He grew up with no electricity nor telephone on a dairy farm in Panton, Vermont. Work was play and he was driving the tractor (with blocks strapped to the pedals) pulling the hay wagon for a neighbor for money by the time he was six years old. His love for tractors was lifelong. In adulthood you could always find him Labor Day weekend at the Tractor Pull at the Goshen Fairgrounds in Connecticut. He continued to drive his own John Deere riding lawn mower wearing his John Deere hat, helping the “old people” with their lawns into his eighties and up to the last year of his life drove it down to Pettiford Creek in North Carolina to watch the baby alligator. As a child he still loved fishing; smelt and perch from the lake, trout or bass in Otter Creek and bullhead with a cane pole from Dead Creek near the old Jerome homestead of Stovepipe City. He, also, loved caring for and milking his goats and raising rabbits. He trapped skunks to sell the pelts for money to go to the movies. He skipped most of high school and after an honorable discharge from the Navy he moved from Vermont to Connecticut with a wife and daughter. He found his first employment in Bantam at Avalon Farms (an apple farm). He worked hard for his money as he delivered coal then oil for Bantam Supply. He played hard, too, bowling, horseshoes, softball and as a volunteer for the Bantam Fire Company, including serving as Assistant Chief. With the Bantam Civic Association he mowed the fields and helped with Turkey Shoots and the Bantam Carnival. He landed his dream job as Caretaker at Lenox Hill Camp on Bantam Lake living on the premises for more than twenty years. There he raised his daughter, two sons, and hosted many kids from New York City who became friends forever. After his divorce and the camp closed he did what he always said he was going to do “I’m going home.” meaning Vermont. He married a second time, retired finally and completely from Middlebury College and surprisingly moved to Orange Lake, Florida where he lived happily for over twenty years. Some of his happiest times were spent at the Opry and Services and weekly pot luck at the Church at Triple Cross Ranch in Micanopy. Bill will always be remembered for his smiling eyes, great sense of humor and a laugh that sometimes couldn’t quit. Some of his words & sayings will be quoted by others forever. He quoted from Yogi Berra, or his favorites Laurel & Hardy or the Three Stooges. Some, you know, were all his own. His kind and caring ways were apparent to all, for all who knew him had received a helping hand at one time or another. He loved bringing people together for a good time “also, too”. From hosting hunting parties in Vermont to annual Memorial Day picnics in Connecticut, and Cribbage any time “Want me to beat you a game?”. Bill was pre-deceased by his mother Rachel, father Russell; Brooks brothers John, Phelps “Doc”, David, Clarence, Loyal “Buck”, and Barrows brother Stewart “Melvin”; and Brooks sisters Harriet, Patricia, Millicent, and Barrows sister Mae; and Linda’s son Rick. He leaves behind his wife Linda Carey, Linda’s children Kevin, Darcy, Amy, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; mother of his children Priscilla/Pat, daughter Susan (William), sons Curtis and Albert, grandchildren William (Kim), Russell; Aaron (Alina), Evan (Brittany), Elliette, Natasha (Corey), Danielle (Spencer), Hawley, one great grand-child and scores of nieces and nephews. A Memorial Service to celebrate his life & love will be held in Connecticut at a date to be determined. In lieu of flowers, please fill the cowboy hat in his memory at the Church at Triple Cross Ranch, 20740 NW 100th Ave. Rd. Micanopy, FL 32667.
