She was born Mar. 7, 1933, in Sophia, WV, a daughter of the late Lester D. Eller and Viola (Blevins) Eller.
After graduating Sophia high school in 1951, Carol went on to work for Sophia Finance and Household Finance in Richmond and later returned to Alderson where she became a loving homemaker and mother. She was a devout member of the Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church and was a member of the Ladies Auxiliary of Tri County Memorial VFW Post 6723 in Alderson.
Carol will be remembered for her love of animals, especially her cat, Precious. She enjoyed gardening, the long walks around Alderson, but most of all, she enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
