Carol Ann Carrington

November 2, 1942 — December 4, 2023



Carol Ann Carrington, a beloved member of our community, passed away
peacefully on Monday, December 4, 2023, at Jackson Madison County
General Hospital. She was born on Monday, November 2, 1942, in Parsons,
TN to her loving parents Mary Ann and Johnny Odle, and Otto Douglas.
Carol';s life was filled with purpose and dedication. She served in property
management and bookkeeping at L S C Properties, where she made a
significant impact through her exceptional work ethic and attention to detail.
  Her contributions to the family business were valued. She also worked at
Second National Bank and sold real estate for Applewood Realty.
Prior to her professional endeavors, Carol cherished her time as a majorette
and cheerleader at Parsons High School. Even into adulthood, Carol carried
the spirit of enthusiasm and cheerfulness that defined her high school years.
  Carol possessed an unwavering love for life. She found great joy in spending
time at the river, indulging in boating adventures, and showcasing her water
skiing skills during her younger days. One particular memory that brought
immense excitement to Carol's life was encountering Elvis Presley and
Anita Wood driving through Parsons one day—an encounter she fondly
shared with others.
  In addition to her active pursuits, Carol also found solace in quieter moments.
She had a deep appreciation for literature and could often be found
engrossed in romance novels. Carol's creativity extended beyond reading as
she devoted countless hours to crocheting intricate pieces, particularly items
made with love for her cherished grandchildren.
  Carol Ann Carrington will be deeply missed by her family and friends who
were fortunate enough to share in the moments of joy that defined her life.
She was especially grateful to her great friend and caregiver of the last few
years Doris Carter. Her cheerful demeanor, encouraging nature, and loving
presence brought warmth to every gathering she attended.  

 She is survived by her husband Larry Carrington of 63 years, two sons, Scott
Carrington (Saundra) of Milan, TN, Brad Carrington (Terrence Murphy) of
Santa Fe, NM, sister Mary Frances Wilkins of Cordova, TN, and two
grandchildren, Rachel Marie Carrington and Nathan Tyler Carrington.

forever twirling in the hearts of those who hold her dear.
