Elizabeth Hardin Harrington Smith

Elizabeth Harrington Smith, age 67, of Carolina Beach, NC, unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, July 31, 2022. She was born June 25, 1955 in Wilmington, NC, the second child of Charles M Harrington Jr. and Audrey Strong Harrington (both now deceased.)

She graduated from New Hanover High School in 1973 and later graduated from UNC-Wilmington with a degree in computer science. She worked several jobs as a computer engineer, including at General Electric where she met her husband of 31 years, Daniel Smith. She loved her pets, being a mentor to her friends, and taking long walks on the beach where she would commune with God. Elizabeth was a caring person, dedicated to her belief in God and desire to share her faith with others. She taught several bible studies in her life and spent time prior to marriage and children studying at a bible college and engaging in outreach programs. She was a member of the Carolina Beach Island Women’s group and maintained friendships with lifelong friends by whom she will be greatly missed.

Elizabeth (Liz) is survived by her husband Daniel W. Smith, her daughter Audrey Hardin Doss (husband Solomon), her step-children Jennifer Handschuh (husband Richmond) and Marlian Smith (wife Gabriel), her siblings Charles M Harrington III (wife Mary) and Mary Ellen Harrington Batts (husband Johnny), her grandchildren Chase, Summer, Landon, Daniel, Justin, Emma, Caleb, and David, and all her beloved nieces and nephews. We are saddened by her passing, however we are glad to know that she was a believer in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and will have her place in Heaven.

A time of visitation will be held on Friday, August 5, 2022 from 1:00PM till 2:00PM at Wilmington Funeral Chapel, with a graveside service to be held at 2:15PM, at Oakdale Cemetery in Wilmington, North Carolina.
