Carol Lynn's Story
Carol Rolt Fleming passed away on Saturday, November 25, 2017. Born in Thomasville, Georgia, on June 4, 1949, Carol was the daughter of Oris Raymond Rolt and Annie Mae (Ann) Barber Rolt. Carols parents raised her and her sisters in the fellowship of First Presbyterian Church where they were faithful members in the church choirs. Carols fondest memories during that time were being a part of the Joyful Noise Choir under the direction of Dr. Ruth Sisson who became a lifelong friend. Carol rejoined First Presbyterian Church when she returned to Thomasville later in life. In 1968, Carol graduated from Thomasville High School after which she completed her Secretarial Science degree from Thomas Area Technical School. She began her 48-year working career at Georgia Crate and Basket Company. She moved to Atlanta in 1973 where she was employed by Coats and Clark Distribution Center. Several years later she moved to Conway, Arkansas, where she worked for Rock-Tenn Industries and later for Virco Manufacturing Company as Senior Buyer. In 1998, Carol returned home to Thomasville where she worked for Illingworth Engineering Company as the Administrative Assistant to Bill Mott until her retirement in September of this year.
