Survived by her dedicated husband of over 50 years Carl and sons Rob and Shannon.

  • We are so sorry fir your loss . Carol was an amazing, kind, loving woman of God . She is now with her Father in Heaven. I hope knowing this brings your family peace. I am so thankful that I met her and spent time with her. I will hold Mt memories close to my heart until I see her again!

  • Carol was the fist neighbor on Moss Road to come and introduce herself with her two small sons dressed as clowns. So cute. Her smile was so friendly, so warm an inviting. Carol and Carl were both wonderful neighbors and those two little clowns have been life Long friends of my sons. I am so thankful that through Jesus we will meet again. And yes, I have a couple of those dish cloths. Praying for the family! Love Rita!!!

  • Carol, a true angel on earth. She naturally, without effort, made each person she met, feel special. That’s a special quality that only angels hold. Of those who have encountered such an angel, understand what I mean. She saw the good in all and through her loving expression, people could see in her eyes and in her smile, and feel her true compassion. If you knew Carol, you were touched by her innocence, optimism, her light-heartedness, her strength, her zest for life. She always had a welcome spot for you on her front porch and in her heart. Carol you will be missed here on earth, I’m privileged to have great memories in my heart. Sending my love and prayers, Kim

  • My childhood memories of Carol and the entire family are very dear to me. I remember going out to their house and all of us kids playing hide and seek while the adults (My Dad and Mom, Uncle’s and Aunt’s) all enjoyed each other’s witty personalities. My thoughts are with everyone effected by the loss of Carol. My guess is my momma, Judy Greenlee and Uncle Dick, Richard Curnutte, are in heaven helping the Lord welcome Carol and cracking jokes talking about old times. Much love and warm hugs.

  • Carol Chandler was a fun loving gal, and was my supervisor for a couple of years at Wendy’s International. Her laugh was contagious and she made the office atmosphere positive. Her humor, her stories, were entertaining. I was a single mom during that time with two daughters. She was very kind and worked with me for time off to run my girls to doctor and dentist appointments. I have a needlepoint from Carol- I treasure it.
    So sorry her last few years were rough ones, sad to see she had passed.
    Yes” Unto Everything there is a Season”, God’s Plan.

  • We are so sorry to hear of Carols passing. I know that She loved welcoming people to her home at Camp Hi-Lo. She made everyone feel so welcome there. I will always remember going up there to help paint, with Chris, Robin, Rob, Melissa, Jason, and I. So much fun! And I had never seen anyone make sausage gravy like she did, it was so good. She will be missed, but I know the heavens are rejoicing with her and Melissa there.
