Testimony

One Sunday night during a revival at Liberty, Carla told the congregation her testimony from what we all remember, she said she was saved at an early age, 8 years old, at her daddy's church. Although, we have forgotten the tiny details over time, everyone at Liberty was blessed to hear her wonderful experience and her beautiful singing. Carla knew the Lord and had no doubts about where she would go whenever her time came. And for that we are all so thankful because we know she is "Home in Heaven" with her daughter Jessica Fay and her Mom Nora Fay and we will be with her again someday.

Carla Lee Howard Damron, age 59, of Tazewell, TN was born on Friday September 9, 1960 in Harlan, KY. and peacefully passed into the hands of Jesus on Sunday, October 20, 2019. Carla was preceded in death by her young daughter, Jessica Fay and her mother, Nora Fay Howard.

She is survived by her loving husband of 33 years: Raymond Damron, SR.;

Daughter: Latasha Damron;

Son & Daughter-in-law: Ray and Heather Damron;

Grandson: Ryland Damron; Special Granddaughters: Ella, Carlin and Delilah; Father and Step-Mother:

Carlos and Mae Howard; Sisters: Linda and Randy Noe; Freida and Johnny Rodriguez; Sandy and Jeff Dixon; Nieces: Stephanie and Cody Edens; Tiffany Dixon; Misty Fay Rodriguez; special niece: Amanda Dove; Nephews: JR Dove, Carlos Dove, Johnny and Becca Rodriguez, Eric and Autumn Rodriguez; great Nieces and Nephews: Caden, Kylie, Nevaeh, Jacob, Hayden, Nora, Malachi, Jordan, Jaelynn, Rylan, Masyn, Tristan and Sofia.

Carla grew up in the coal mining community of Harlan, KY and she always said how proud she was to be a coal miner's daughter. Her mother taught her everything she knew about cooking and she found joy anytime she could cook for her family.

Carla also loved being in nature because she felt closer to God there. In the spring she would get excited because she could work in her flower beds and put the humming bird feeders out again. She liked to sit on the rocking chair on her front porch to watch the birds fly in and out of their nest as she drank her morning coffee.

Fishing at the lake during the summer, with her husband and daughter was one of her favorite things to do. She enjoyed the fun competition to see who could catch the biggest fish and she usually won.

Carla was one of the most loving people you could ever meet and it showed in her love for her family. Her children and grandchildren meant everything to her and they were the reason she looked forward to a new day. Because a new day meant more hugs and kisses, smiles and memories.

Her husband Raymond was her rock and guiding light. God led them to one another when they needed each other the most. The first time they met they both knew it would be a forever love. With the sparkle in her eyes and his cowboy charm they set out on a wonderful journey together. They loved forever in a lifetime of 33 years, 3 months, 2 weeks, and a day.

Carla's baby girl Jessica Fay was her first glimpse at being a mommy. She loved Jessica Fay fiercely as all mothers love their little ones, and when God called Jessica Fay home a piece of Carla went with her "Little Angel".

The Lord did not leave her heart empty. He sent another blessing to Carla, her daughter Latasha. She said God gave her a new baby to help her heal from loss and Latasha was the little spitfire she needed and had prayed for. Carla always bragged on how sweet and beautiful her daughter is and how they were best friends.

But the blessings didn't stop there. A few years later God sent Carla a handsome son, Raymond Jr. He kept her on her toes and made her little family complete. Carla always told her daughter-in-law, Heather, that Ray might be her husband, but he would always be her baby boy.

Not many are lucky enough to have such a good Mama, wife, grandma, daughter, sister, auntie, and friend as Carla. We were all so blessed to have her in our lives and look forward to joining her in Heaven some day.

The family will receive friends Thursday October 24th from 12 until 2 PM at Coffey Funeral Home. The funeral service will be at 2 PM Friday in the Coffey Funeral Home chapel. The graveside service will follow in Irish Memorial Gardens. Minister: Rev. Joe Howard; Eulogy: Daniel Venable; Pallbearers: Raymond Damron Sr., Raymond Damron Jr., Nathan Grubbs, Daniel Venable, B.J. Williams, Joseph Buchanan.
