Carol Collier Caudill

August 24, 2022, 88, Goldsboro –

Carol Collier Caudill, 88, went to her heavenly home on Wednesday, August 24, 2022. Carol was born in Wayne County to the late Lloyd Jackson Collier, Sr. and Clara Lee Stith Collier on April 29, 1934. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Howard Davis Caudill, Sr.; sisters, JoAnn Bryan and Jean Powell; and brother, Lloyd Jackson Collier, Jr.

Possessing a deep faith in her Lord and Savior, Carol was a long-time member of First Baptist Church in Goldsboro. She served her Lord as a Sunday school teacher for over 23 years. With her calling to serve others, Carol also enjoyed her volunteer work with the Salvation Army.

Other than family and church, Carol’s love was her work. She worked as a kindergarten teacher with Wayne County public schools and retired from North Drive Elementary. Carol was a member of the teaching sorority, Delta Kappa Gamma.

For Carol, family came second only to Jesus. The very definition of a Proverbs 31 lady, Carol was a loving wife who cared for the needs of her husband and children. Quick to forgive and slow to condemn, her patience and prayers brought her children and family through every circumstance. Carol will be remembered as a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Her kind heart and sweet spirit will be missed.

While our hearts are broken at her departure, we know her reunion with Howard was a glorious one.

A service to celebrate Carol’s life will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 27, 2022 at First Baptist Church, 125 S. John Street, Goldsboro. The family will greet friends immediately following the service at the church and other times at her home. A private interment for the family will be held in Wayne Memorial Park.

Carol is survived by her children, Davie Caudill and wife, Rayne of Mount Olive, Mark C. Caudill and wife, Gina of Winston-Salem, Laura C. Jones and husband, Ken of Kenansville and Susan C. Crooks and husband, David of Goldsboro; grandchildren, Christian Gray Caudill, James Randolph Crooks, Anna Davis Caudill, Sarah Ellen Crooks, Hampton Davis Jones, Virginia Collier Caudill, Caroline Collier Jones, and Howard Davis Caudill, III; and several nieces and nephews she loved very much.
