Obituary of Barnetta Harmon

Please share a memory of Barnetta to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Barnetta Harmon fell asleep on October 22, 2022, at the age of 75 in Pleasantville, New Jersey. She was born to James and Jeanette Parker in Oxford, North Carolina. At the age of 16, the family relocated to Atlantic City, New Jersey, which quickly became her home. Being the oldest of her siblings, Barnetta could often be found helping her family by doing chores or running errands. Throughout her life, she enjoyed spending time with them. On April 8, 1967, Barnetta wed Preston Harmon. Their marriage produced three children - Preston Jr., Tyrone, and Veta. The marriage would endure for the next 55 years and play a key role in the sterling personalities of their 5 grandchildren: Hakeem, Ramal, Aliyah, Abdul, and Tatyana. Whenever their grands needed anything, they were never greeted with a closed fist, but rather an open hand and a loving heart. Barnetta was, and continues to be, the superlative example of a grandmother. An alum of Atlantic City High School, Barnetta was last employed with Island Cleaners. In her spare time, she could be found cooking or hanging with her family, which was her favorite thing to do. She also enjoyed traveling, listening to music, and watching her old western television shows like "Bonanza" and "Gunsmoke". Barnetta is predeceased by: her parents, James and Jeanette Parker; her infant son, Tyrone Harmon; brothers James Parker Jr., Willie Parker, Ronald Parker, and Chreshull Rivers, Sr.; her only sister, Joell Valentine; her niece, Teresa, affectionately known as "Nannie"; and her great-granddaughter, Storm Demosthene. Barnetta is survived by: her husband, Preston Harmon Sr. of Pleasantville, NJ; her firstborn son, Preston Harmon, Jr.; her loving daughter, Veta Harmon- Brown (Richard) of Atlantic City, NJ; five grandchildren, Hakeem Harmon of Forestville, MD, Aliyah Harmon (Taron) of Mays Landing, NJ, Ramal Pittman of Florida, Abdul Fletcher of Mays Landing, NJ, and Tatyana Brown of Egg Harbor Township; brothers, Brent Rivers of Atlantic City. NJ and Corey Rivers of Trenton, NJ; sister-in-law, Robyn Parker; along with a host of great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews including, Yvonne Parker (Robert) and Yvette Harper of Atlantic City, NJ; and Delphia Harper of Mays Landing, NJ. From her constant pranks to her warm, generous nature, Barnetta will be immensely missed by her family. We all owe her a debt of gratitude, greater than she would ever claim or we will ever know. She will be sorely missed by her daughter, Veta, who showed her mother so much love during her time of need. Grandma's love will blanket our family - forever. "And He [Jehovah] will wipe out every tear from their eves, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anvmore. The former things have passed away." Revelations 21:4 (NWT) Funeral services will be 11AM, Thursday, November 3, 2022, Faith Baptist Church, 829 Tilton Road, Pleasantville, New Jersey, where friends may call from 10AM. Interment to follow in Lincoln Memorial Park, Harding Highway, Mays Landing, New Jersey.
