Betty Carolyn "Carol" (Woods) LewisApril 10, 1953 May 24, 2023Betty 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
Brenda Melton and I are so sorry for your loss .Let us know if you need anything. We are praying for you .
I am so very sorry to here this Carol was so sweet and always called to check on dad. I loved her so much. She will be missed but I know she’s happy and in no more pain.
So many good memories of Carol over the last 8½ years. The most recent, however, would be of when I went to visit her in the hospital. She still made jokes, and was in good spirits despite everything. When she came home & I was asked to help her, I didn't hesitate. She was still so positive & happy to see me. We talked all day long. What stands out the most, is how she was still thinking of others. She told me that she needed to go see her niece, who going through an amazing recovery. Carol was thinking about her a lot, & hated that she was going through so much. That is a perfect example of the type of person Carol was, all the time. She was struggling herself & needed someone with her 24/7 (which she absolutely hated by the way), yet she still thinking of others, & weighed heavy on her heart. If I was capable & Carol asked for something I would do it, because I hadno doubt she would do the same for me. She will be missed, but to those who knew her, she definitely will not be forgotten. She loved us all with all her heart.
RIP my sweet friend you will be missed
I’m so sorry for Carol’s passing. She was always so kind to me whenever I would run into her. Always had a huge smile and warm hug. She will be dearly missed. RIL❤️
Grandma Carol you will be missed. Such a kind loving soul who loved Blaine with all your heart. I will always be able to smell a yard sale because of you. I love you so much. Heaven has gained another angel. Rest in peace Grandma Carol. Your work on earth has been done.
Carol, so glad I got to see you when we brought mom back east. You will be missed my sweet cousin. Love you.
My Aunt Carol was one of the strongest people I have known in my life. No matter how hard times were, she would keep her head up and make the most of it. She taught me those values and I couldn't be more blessed to have her in my life. I'll be there for others just the way she was there for me growing up.
I am so very sorry, your family are in my thoughts and prayers!
