Loved to fish, she caught a 5-foot marlin
With war threatening in 1941, she came to Washington to work for the federal government, eventually serving at the Department of Treasury, National Security Resources Board, War Assets Administration and U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. She was sent to Switzerland during the Geneva Conference.
She was a member of the Ager Road U.M. Church, Bells U. M. Church, Camp Springs Elks Lodge, Moose Lodge and the American Legion. She loved to bowl, dance, travel and fish. Off the coast of North Carolina, she once caught a 5-foot marlin.
She was preceded in death by her husbands, Tillmen Charles Lewis and Kenneth Lee Carroll. Survivors include many nieces and nephews and her very special stepson, Wayne Carroll.
