Play Tribute Movie

Clines "Earline" Lockey Gaskins, 82, of Vanceboro went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, September 13, 2020 at her residence surrounded by her family and beloved dog. She was sugar and spice. So sweet, loving and kind. She would give you anything she had and go without. She also brought a lot of spice to our lives. Even in her later years, you might catch her doing a little jig or flirting with a good looking man. She was strong, tough, a hard worker and we all knew when to get out of her way. We will never forget her goodness, love and spice she brought to our lives.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Latham "Gabby" Gaskins, Sr.; her children, Latham "Gabby Jr." Gaskins and Brenda Kay Jones; and grandson, Latham Gaskins, III.

She is survived by her granddaughters, Melody Gaskins Powers, Jennifer Jones Cuthrell (Eric), and Michelle Jones Rodriguez (Osman), Anna Hobbes (James) and Emilie Norcia (Vince); sister, Bingham Marie Lockey Purifoy of Texas; daughter-in-law, Lorie Gaskins; son-in-law, Rev. Roger Jones (Odessa); great grandchildren, Brandon Medina, Sydni Powers, Alex Rodriguez, Shane Cuthrell, Hunter Cuthrell, Kaylee Rodriguez, Gianna Norcia, Nina Norcia, and Chase Hobbes; and great great grandson, Reegan Jones.

The family will receive friends from 1 to 2 p.m. on Friday, September 18, 2020 at Cotten Funeral Home followed by the service which will begin at 2 p.m. in the Chapel. Burial will follow at New Bern Memorial Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in her name to the American Lung Association.

We just heard of the lost of Ms. Gaskins. She was our neighbor in Vanceboro for many years. Our prayers are with her family at this time. She will be greatly missed. She's having a great time now in Heaven. And I'm sure she would love to see everyone. But she will see us all someday soon. 🙏

Earline was truly one of the warmest people I've ever met. You never knew what she was going to say next, full of wonderful stories about the family. She will definitely be remembered and missed by everyone that ever had the honor of meeting her.

Grandma I miss you already! You have been my Mama since my Mama died when I was 15. You have always been there for me and my kids! You took care of me when I needed help and lifted me up when I was down. Not to mention when I needed to vent! You definitely were my go to person! My only peace right now, is knowing you got to go home and be with Mama, Gabby Jr, Granddaddy, and Latham! Plus your brothers and sister. But, I'll NEVER forget you dying in my arms! Watching you reach out to the angels above to take you on, was something I will forever hold in my heart! I love you always and forever!
Love your Granddaughter Michelle.

I always loved my Aunt Earline! Many many memories when we were all little. I always loved looking at all her stuff and listening to her stories. Before I left New Bern I would try to visit her as often as I could. My last visit with her was June 2014. We laughed, cried and shared our stories! May you Rest In Peace! You left all your family a legacy!
