Biography

Carol Beth Dauphine was granted her angel wings on February 3rd, 2021. Her final days were spent at home surrounded by the family and friends that Carol had touched in some small way throughout her awesome and very memorable life.

Carol's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her warming smile, healing heart and gentle touch brought so much joy to her family, friends and patients.

Born in Port Arthur on December 5th, 1955 to Marian C. Whitehead Clingan and Andrew J. Clingan. Carol dreamt that she would one day be able to provide help for people on the medical ship Hope. She graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School and then went on to attend Lamar University School of Nursing in Port Arthur, Texas where she graduated on the Dean's List. As Charge Nurse for Scott & White in Horseshoe Bay and all throughout Carol's nursing career, she was well respected by her colleagues, peers and professionals in the medical industry for her knowledge, compassion, and ability that healed countless lives.

She was active participant and member of organizations including The Texas Board of Nursing, Orthopedic Nurses Association, and American Red Cross. She was also a member of the Texas Board of Realtors and Texas Real Estate Commission and multiple conservation clubs. Faithful member of her beloved Immaculate Conception/St. Peter Catholic Church.

Carol’s proudest family moments is when her brother David returned home from Vietnam, having all her siblings in esteemed career positions, her parent’s marriage of 49 years, and the birth of her son and grandchildren.

Carol loved to swim, hike and explore. She enjoyed fishing, working in the garden, cooking and playing games like Scrabble with friends and family. She had great style, an eye for design and kept an immaculate home. She had a great affinity for the fine arts, reading the classics, painting and listening to music. She mastered the piano and loved listening to her husband on the acoustic guitar.

Although she will be missed, she gave us all such courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life. She loved to be outdoors, swim, hike and watch baseball. She could spend hours in her favorite chair reading and loved cuddling close to those she loved so much. Her favorite childhood memory- playing in the rare snowfall and to be treated in her Mother’s Kitchen to her awesome baked apples that perfectly took the chill away.
