Betty Carolyn ''Carol'' (Woods) Lewis
April 10, 1953 May 24, 2023

Betty Carolyn ''Carol'' (Woods) Lewis passed away peacefully at her home in East End, Arkansas on Wednesday, May 24, 2023. Carol was 70 years old and was a member of Forest Tower Baptist Church in Hensley, Arkansas. Carol was born to Wayne and Betty (Williford) Woods on April 10, 1953 in Little Rock, Arkansas. She served many roles in her life, the most rewarding of which was a caregiver to those in need. She loved making other people's lives easier and she often became as attached to them as they were to her. She helped many people in many ways, but she was most proud of the time she spent giving back to her own family in her parents' time of need.

Aside from helping others, Carol loved to have a good time. Anyone who knew her can visualize the pep in her step, the lift in her voice and the positive attitude she typically displayed. Even after suffering a debilitating stroke, Carol kept her optimism. She got to know her nurses, physical therapists and others who helped care for her when she couldn't care for herself. She would talk and laugh with them, telling them stories and bragging about her kids and grandkids. In her spare time, Carol wrote poetry, painted rocks, arranged flowers and completed other arts and crafts projects for people she cared about. She could make a dollar stretch farther than anyone and despite her limited resources, she gave money regularly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Carol was preceded in death by her parents, Wayne and Betty (Williford) Woods; her brother, David Woods and her sister, Sheila Woods.

She is survived by her sons, Michael Woods (Crystal) and Gary Brewer, Jr. (Kristi); her grandsons, Michael Blaine Woods (Andrea), Brennan Brewer and Evan Woods; sisters, Brenda Hatley and Nicki Woods; many nieces, nephews and extended family members and her sweet dog, Mollie.

All those whose lives were touched by Carol are invited to attend a memorial service at Roller-Alcoa Funeral Home in Benton, Arkansas at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 31st. The family would appreciate it if you could share a special memory of Carol on the digital guestbook. While flowers are welcome, donations can also be sent to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as an expression of sympathy
