Carol was born on September 28, 1943 in Greensboro, NC to the late Alfred and Vera Miller and was an active member of Christ Lutheran Church. She loved the Lord, her family, friends, and fellow church members. Carol was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend who was loved by many and will be missed by all who knew her.

I meet Carol when I attended Battle Forest. I remember Super Bowl parties at her house with the youth group. It is ironic that later in life my daughter would call her aunt. She was always there to lend an ear. She will be missed. May her memories be eternal!

Dear family,
Carol and I met in school in 7th grade. We were inseparable. In our teens we were either at my parents home or at her parents house. our Parents allowed us to give parties at each other’s homes. We had a wonderful time together. We laughed a lot. We enjoyed trips with Mr and Mrs Miller to the beach and mountains. Carols memory will always be a big part of my life. She was a great friend. So sorry for your loss. Much sympathy, Dorothy Wendzicki

I will always remember Carol and the time we worked at Burlington Industries. My joy and surprise was the day she and John walked into the front doors of Christ Lutheran Church. I couldn't believe that they were coming to worship at my little church. I am so thankful for everything she and John has done for the church. Her caring presence will be missed by everyone. I have no doubt she is with the Lord and is finally free of all pain and suffering she endured. She is now whole and rest in God's arms. Carol, I will miss you so very much.
