Carole Lorraine Woodington, passed away on March 6, 2020.

Carole lived by the motto “Attitude Is Everything.” Born in Kansas City, Missouri, October 4, 1928, ­­­one year later was the beginning of the Great Depression. Throughout Carole’s life she faced many challenges, but when meeting her you would never know. She would always greet you with her big beautiful smile and her sincere, warm hello.

Volunteerism was very important to Carole and early in her life she found the Lord Jesus Christ. She believed volunteering was an important part of being a good citizen and a good Christian. Regardless of her circumstances or where she was living, she would always find her local Church and would always join right away. She would sing in the choir every Sunday, would volunteer within the Church, and always volunteered in the community despite working full time.

Carole retired from Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City in 1996 when she was 68 and moved to Eagle Rock, Missouri, near Table Rock Lake. She bought a home there she was very proud of because it had been built by her Uncle Ramon Irvin, a war hero from the big one, WW2. Her Church was right across the street. Carole enjoyed coffee on her porch every morning and she would complain about the deer eating her bird seed. Well into her late 80s Carole would crank up the riding mower and would keep her property looking picture perfect. She loved the beauty of the Table Rock area and she was right where she wanted to be.

Carole was a great Mom, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother. She is survived by her Great Granddaughter Jaylee, her Granddaughter Lori, her Daughter Adele, and her Son Bill, as well as their spouses Jason, Gary, Julie, and a very long list of cousins.

Carole’s service will be graveside at West Union Cemetery in Peculiar, Missouri, on Sunday, March 15 at 2 p.m.
