Caroline Maxine Barris, 41, of Batesville entered into rest on Saturday, November 14, 2020.

Caroline was born on April 2, 1979, in Batesville, Arkansas. She was a faithful woman that was full of life and love. She served the Lord Jesus Christ in life as well as a member of New St. John’s Missionary Baptist Church in Jonesboro, Arkansas, by way of Bethlehem Baptist Church of Batesville.
