Mrs. McCormac was a shining child of God her whole life. She was there to hug us when we visited Clinton Church of Christ and she was there at Clinton High School to fawn all over us in regard to Yellowjacket football and basketball and baseball. I'm two months late on knowing she died. Richard is in charge of Clinton, which means that Carrol is overseeing Clinton from Heaven. Clinton is blessed, directly from Heaven, because of people like Mrs. McCormac. Clinton is in heavenly hands. Richard, my old friend, I called and talked to Dena this morning and you were on a phone call. I'll talk to you later on. I wanted you to know how much our family loves your family. It was great talking to Dena and then knowing I'll talk to you later. Win-win.
To the McCormac family- Doris Jean and I are thinking of you all. We did not hear about Carol ‘s passing until it was too late to attend. Please know we have you in our hearts and prayers. Carol was such a wonderful person and helped so many people in her life. She encouraged so many ( myself included). She taught my girls in Sunday School in Clinton and will never be forgotten by anyone who ever met her. We love you and we are of course your loving cousins ever.

We will miss you dearly! We are blessed to have you as our Great Aunt!!! We love you!!
Prayers for all !
So sorry to hear of Carrol's death. Richard has been a good friend and brother in Christ for many years. He talks about the mother and her love for God. May the good Lord give her a perfect resting place. My deepest condolences to the family especially Richard 🙏🙏
Our deepest condolences for the loss of Ms. Carrol. Such a wonderfully sweet woman that was an angel among us. Peace to the family during this time.
The first time I met Carrol was after a trip to Dennard with Mike to do some metal detecting. We were hoping to find some "buried treasure", but all I dug up was a quarter and a dime from near the old home's drive. On the way back we stopped to have lunch with Carrol and after introductions she asked if I had found the "family silver". I shook my head sadly and she just said "It's okay you can do the dishes to pay for your lunch". My hand quickly found those 2 coins and I laid them on the table and said "But I found 35 cents!". That was one of the best bargains of my life. We had a great meal and even better company, and Carrol made sure to invite me back "just anytime". She was warm and gracious and sincere, and you never left her house doubting that she truly meant for you come back and see her. Happy homegoing Carrol, I'll see you again one day.
So sorry to hear of Carol’s passing. She was one of my first Bible School teachers while growing up. Always such a sweetheart! She was so full of life and energy. She participated in the Hunger Run in her eighties! She was an example for us all and enriched every life she touched. Prayers for the family ❤️
I’m at a loss. I feel like l’ve lost another mother in a span of less than year. Carrol, Dick and the kids are literally the first memory I have of anyone other than my parents. I hope they know what they’ve meant to me over the years with there love and support. Love you guys, Russ and Peg
So sorry for your loss. May the good memories you made with her be easily remembered with a smile.
Aunt Carrol’s house always felt like home, no matter how long it had been since I was last there. Chris talks often about how welcome he felt in her kitchen. I’ll miss her terribly and I’m thinking of all of you. Love you all.
Richard, Brenda, I have been on vacation and did not know she passed. My heart goes out to you, as you know how I have struggled with losing my parents.

Her children, grands and great grands can be proud of legacy she leaves.

As an adult, I would still stop by just to talk to her and give her a hug. Losing a mom is one of the hardest things a person will ever go through; however, please remember she will be with you through this. She will always be with you. Your whole family will be in my prayers.
