Obituary

Sister Mariah Cabarrus

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
(1 Corinthians 15:51-52)


Sister Mariah Cabarrus quietly departed this life on January 5, 2020. “Aunt Mariah” as she was so affectionately called by her all, was born to the late James Limit Cabarrus and Lelia Leigh Cabarrus on December 28, 1931 in Creswell (Cherry), North Carolina. Sister Mariah was 89 years old and was a faithful member of the New Bethlehem Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ.

Mariah attended and finished school in Cherry, North North Carolina. At a very young age, Mariah moved to Norfolk, Virginia where she resided for many years with her loving sister and her husband, Ionia and Henry Buck. Mariah retired as the manager of the Pampers Cleaner which in later years became the Albano Cleaners.


Mariah who was the longest survivor of her family is predeceased by her beloved son, Sargent First Class Jeffery D. Cabarrus, her six siblings, Calvin Cabarrus, Ionia C. Buck, Charlie Cabarrus, John Lee Cabarrus, George Cabarrus, and Herman Cabarrus. She is also predeceased by a very special life-long friend, Haywood Horton and niece Mattie B. Wilkins.


Mariah leaves to cherish her memory three grandchildren, Tasha Cabarrus, Christopher Cabarrus and Steven Cabarrus; six great grandchildren; a very special nephew George Raleigh Cabarrus; Lt. Col. Henry Buck, Jr. (Judith) and Dr. Cynthia Buck who resided with her throughout their childhood; Bishop George Cabarrus her loving caregiver; two sister in laws, Mary Cabarrus (Herman) and Mildred Cabarrus (George) as well a host of very loving nieces and nephews their children, loving cousins, the New Bethlehem Church Family and any other relatives.

“Our Baby Do or Miss Lena Horne” as she loved to be called is now absent from the body but so ever present with the Lord. Sleep now and take you rest we loved you but God has indeed loved you best.”
