Carol Margaret Trent, 80, of North Richland Hills, Texas was called to her heavenly home on January 2, 2021.

The family will receive friends during visitation on January 14, 2021 at Shannon Funeral Chapel in North Richland Hills starting at 10am. A service will follow at 11:00am. Committal service will be held at 1:15pm at Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery.

Carol was born on March 20, 1940 to parents, Leighton and Helen Bryant in Michigan City, Indiana, where she was raised with her brother Donald. Carol met her beloved husband of 60 years, John R. Trent, at Ben Lippen School in Asheville, NC and they married in December of 1960. She enjoyed staying at home with their sons Jonathan, Philip and Christopher while also managing several moves during John’s career in the Air Force. In later years, Carol worked as an administrative assistant at an architecture firm while they were stationed at the Pentagon in Washington, DC and then as a Human Resources Manager at Turbo Refrigeration of Denton, Texas. During John’s second career as a custom home builder, Carol was the interior designer and decorator for many of the homes they built. Her other hobbies and past-times included gardening, reading, and watching movies. But most of all, she loved spending time with her nine grandchildren.

Most importantly, Carol loved her family and loved the Lord. She was a very active member of Stone Briar Community Church of Frisco and most recently Liberty Church of Chesterton, IN. Her desire to know the Lord more deeply allowed her to touch many lives through her gift of teaching and mentoring. Carol rarely met a stranger and always felt that it was worthwhile to invest her time in others, especially when helping and mentoring new mothers. Carol, a loving wife, caring mother and doting Nana, will be dearly missed. She is preceded in death by her parents and brother.

Carol is survived by her husband of 60 years, John R. Trent and three sons, Jonathan and wife Virginia, Philip Trent, and Chris Trent and wife Karen; nine grandchildren and their spouses, Caroline and Randy, John Michael and Megan, Audrey, Jacob, Graham, Drew, Sterling, Ryan, and Avery; one great grandson, Jonathan, and numerous other relatives and friends. Carol, we will miss your infectious laugh and your unconditional love and friendship.

Our family went to PINES BIBLE CHURCH where Mr. and Mrs. Leighton Bryant and Donald and Carol went. Carol and Don were really good friends whom we saw at church every Sunday morning and evening and we were involved in the youth ministry as well.
Our family and the Bryant Family loved our church and we spent a lot of time there learning the word of God and Carol*s mother Helen was such a great bible teacher to all us kids.

When my sister Betty called and told me Carol had passed away it was A SHOCK that hit me so hard. It shows how very quickly life goes by and the saying ONLY ONE LIFE AND IT WILL SOON BE PAST AND ONLY WHAT ONE HAS DONE FOR CHRIST WILL LAST. Sad as i was to hear Carol had passed away I also rejoiced in the bible verse that says ABSENT FROM THE BODY AND PRESENT WITH THE LORD and I KNOW that Carol is now IN HEAVEN with her Father and mother and brother Donald and i thank Jesus Christ for his promise of ETERNAL LIFE TO EVERY BORN AGAIN BELIEVER. I truly loved these obituary pictures and each and every one of them show how truly beautiful Carol was, is, and always will be. THANK YOU FOR ALL THE PICTURES

Sorry for your loss. I know this is a time of emotional sadness.
Never enough words to say

Grief never ends...
but is changes
It's a passage, not a place to stay
Grief is not a sign of weakness,
nor a lack of faith....
It is the price of Love

I hope the memories bring you peace, joy & comfort

Dear loved ones of Carol,
My name is also Carol and my husband is John. I first met Carol when she was a lecturer for Women in the Word Bible Study at Liberty Bible Church in Chesterton, IN I think that she lectured twice while I was in that study and I learned SO much from her! She seemed full of grace and truth. She spoke about some misconceptions that many people have about the first woman, Eve (the mother of all the living). This was extremely helpful to me in my teaching to preschoolers in Sunday School, MOPS, and Women in the Word. I will be forever grateful that the Lord brought Carol to Liberty Bible for that chapter in her life and in mine. May our gracious Lord and Savior give you comfort and peace as you are temporarily separated from this precious lady.
