Carolyn Joyce Rayburn Ray left this world for her eternal home on Sunday June 12, 2022. She entered this life on January 19, 1953. She worked at FMC for many years and also worked for Belk and Darlington Oaks in Verona. She loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and made sure that everyone she came into contact with knew who Jesus was. She lived with a servant’s heart, continually putting others’ needs before her own and living out her faith. She never met a stranger and to have known her was to love her. She loved others with a genuineness that only comes from Christ. She enjoyed gardening, spur of the moment “adventures” with family and friends, and spending quality time with those she loved.

(Tripp) Ray III and a host of cousins, friends and church family.
