She was born in Martinsville on December 11, 1941, daughter of the late Enoch Taylor Brown and the late Elizabeth Weiss Brown.

Carol was a member of Heritage United Methodist Church in Lynchburg. She was a retired legal secretary who loved animals and children.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Ray as well as her sister Cheryl B. Watkins.

Her daughter, Denise C. Willard survives her as well as several nieces and a nephew. The family will receive friends from 6-8 pm on Friday, March 26, 2021 at Whitten Timberlake Chapel.

I had the pleasure of working with Carol and Denise at Insight Memory Care Center for the past five year. Carol was always a fire-cracker, with a great, sarcastic sense of humor and a kind heart! I loved watching her find a boyfriend at the center and really enjoy one another's company -- especially when she made him dance with her! Carol was our biggest Frank Sinatra fan as well. You could always count on her for a good eye roll if something crazy was going on! She is greatly missed and will be always remembered!! With love and prayers -- Stephanie Houpt

I hope that the wonderful that you have created with her, will bring you some comfort during this difficult time. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and I am always a phone call or email away if I can do anything to help or support you. Warmly, Anita
