Hearts Love 18

Ms. D’Antrané Cynthia-Marcetta (Harrington) Gaines

July 12, 1990 ~ December 18, 2021 (age 31)



“For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”  2 Timothy 4:6-8

Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV) teaches us “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

A Time to be Born and a Time to Die 

D’Antrane’ was born July 12, 1990, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina to the late Benjamin Thomas and Cynthia Manning Harrington. She transitioned to her heavenly home on Saturday, December 18, 2021 at her earthly home surrounded by loved ones.

A Time to Plant and a Time to Uproot 

From the beginning of school age, “Pooh” knew that she would have to work hard academically to achieve the goals she set for herself – to work in the medical field as a nurse.  She received her early education at North Chatham School and Woods Charter School in Chatham County, and graduated from Belleville West Senior High School, Belleville, Illinois in 2008. She attended Murray State University, Murray, Kentucky 2008-2009. Because of health problems, her education was delayed until 2012 when she attended and graduated from Kaskaskia School of Nursing, Centralia, Illinois. Upon which, she returned to Durham, North Carolina to raise and nurture her daughter.

She joined White Rock United Holy Church at an early age, where she accepted Christ, sang in the R.A. Siler Youth Choir, was a Sunday School Teacher for the primary class, and participated in various youth activities through the church and district into adulthood.

A Time to Weep and a Time to Laugh; A Time to Mourn and a Time to Dance;

A Time to Scatter Stones and A Time to Gather Them

D’Antrane’ was preceded in death by her father, Benjamin; maternal grandparents, Mr. David Manning, Sr. and Mrs. Marcella Manning; and paternal grandmother, Mrs. Etta Alston.

“Pooh” was loving, kind hearted, full of laughter and possessed a passion for helping and caring for others, which was evident in her chosen profession of nursing; she loved to travel and always wanted to enjoy life by living each day to its fullest. She worked at various jobs in nursing and was aspiring to continue her education in that field. To be acquainted with her was to love her.

A Time to Bid Farewell

Precious memories of “Pooh” are shared by her daughter Little Miss Brynnan Taliah-Joelle, mother, Cynthia Harrington; sisters, Valerie Noell and Karen “Katie” (Gregory) Ray; brother, D’Antionnis “Deon” (Sherigale) Manning; two nieces and four nephews; one great-niece; six aunts and five uncles; many great aunts and uncles; and a host of cousins, extended family and friends.
