Carol Shocked Obituary, Death – We do not know when we will be called home or under what circumstances we will be called. When I got the phone call about Mrs. Carol, I was completely devastated. Shocked. Why did I just see her on Monday at the place where she works? It makes me feel terrible for Mr. Joe, as well as for their children and grandchildren, whom they adored so much. Nevertheless, I am certain beyond a reasonable doubt that she has already passed through the pearly gates without being questioned in any way. A courageous woman of unwavering faith, one of the few people of that caliber that I have ever encountered.
To know Mrs. Carol meant to understand the meaning of unselfish service. Since I’ve had the good fortune to work with her on and off for the past 14 years, I can say without a doubt that the compassion and meticulousness with which she treated each and every one of her clients served as an example to me. The sight of her remembering students from decades ago, only to have them respond with “…Mrs. Roberts? A good laugh was always had by saying, “You haven’t changed at all!” During the time that she worked at the office, she served as a guide and instructor for me. She was always there to encourage and inspire me on my path to becoming a more valuable asset to the Clerk’s office.
That Notary public exam is on my to-do list and it will get done eventually. In the past few years, as the dynamics of our office have shifted, I’ve gone to her for guidance on how I can improve in my new role, and she has always been willing to give it to me without hesitation. I can only hope that during the time I spend at work or in the community that I can be even a small fraction of the selfless individual Mrs. Carol was.
Our neighborhood counted itself fortunate to have been able to count on her for as long as we did. I would like to say that having known Carol Roberts has been beneficial for all of us.
