Carol Finks was one of my favorite nieces & a good friend, I used to babysit for my sister Sharon, when her 3 children & my 3 children were young my children & Sharons children were very close growing up, especially Melinda & Carol since Melinda was only 3 months older than Carol. later in life Carol& her husband James moved to AZ, Carol would call & wanted to know how everyone was & what was going on with the family, she loved all the relatives & especially the the family gatherings, if she wasn't too sick she would not miss any, she loved to see everyone & she would pitch in & help cook or clean up, she & James would be celebrating there 40Th anniversary this June. She wanted to live & fought hard, but lost the battle, the Dr. told her husband she would not last another day, but she hung on for another 6 days....She will be missed by all! RIP Carol, we love you. Aunt Duffy & Uncle Sonny

Carol Sue Finks passed away at the age of 63. My dear cousin Carol was one of the strongest persons that I have ever met. Whenever I would mention that to her, she would always say, “I don’t want anyone to ever think that I was a quitter.” Whatever obstacles in life were tossed her way, Carol would always find a way to deflect them with grace, ingenuity & creativity. She once shared with me a promise that she made to God, prior to receiving a liver transplant. She promised that if she would be fortunate enough to be chosen to be an organ recipient, she would let go of any anger or resentment & to try to live a positive, meaningful life. Carol had that surgery 25 years ago! She was only expected to live for approximately 10 years, (most likely, having to endure anti-rejection medication & complications that are typical in her case). Even from childhood, Carol defied all the odds. She was definitely a fighter!
Carol had a very strong work ethic, probably influenced by her mother, Sharon, whom she loved & missed! She also liked to have fun. Carol & her cousin Melinda, shared many good childhood times and memories together. Throughout the years, Carol was especially close to her Aunt Duffy & Uncle Sonny. She enjoyed visiting with them & even vacationing with their family. Carol was very good at cooking and baking. She also liked jewelry, decorating, plants, (especially plumerias), but...Carol LOVED her family, her pets & her husband, James. They meant the world to her! Carol & James would have celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary in June!
Her mother Sharon Pinckney & her sister Cheri Miss, preceded Carol in death.
Carol was a caring & compassionate person who kept her promise to live a positive life.
Carol will be missed, but she will be forever in our hearts!

Carol was a part of my life for over 40 years. She was a sweet and gentle soul and in spite of multiple medical issues (including a liver transplant) she always put other folks' concerns ahead of her own. Many may not know how creative Carol was. When she and James lived in a mobile home, the two of them decorated the interior very tastefully with a certain unique elegance unlike any other mobile home I had ever visited. Carol also landscaped and maintained the outside of her home with beautiful flowers, shrubs and sculptures which earned her a 1st Place award at the mobile home park. Carol was strong and courageous and was optimistic about recovering from her latest medical setback. Sadly, it was not to be. We will all miss her.

Carol was my cousin & we loved her very much!💋 There wasn’t a person that I know that was a harder worker or as a valiant fighter for her life than Carol. She struggled for many years! She’s at peace finally in the loving arms of our Lord & her family that went before her. Rest In Peace Carol 🥰💋
