Carol Lynn ‘Tucky’ Williams Ashmore

Carol Lynn “Tucky” Williams Ashmore, 48, died Feb. 28, 2012, while surrounded by family and friends at St. Francis Hospital in Charleston. Although she had been diagnosed with cancer nine years ago, the cancer never conquered her spirit.

Born July 28, 1963, at Fort Knox, Ky., she was the daughter of Ted Williams of Paint Creek, and the late Carolyn Ash Williams. She also was preceded in death by a brother, Joseph Williams; nephews, Jacob Williams and special angel Wehrle; her second mother, Susie Williams; and many other loved ones.

Carol graduated from Mount Hope High School. She worked in several occupations during her adult life, but her most cherished “job” was being a mother and grandmother. Her hobbies included photography, cake decorating, poetry, quilt making and painting.

She attended Packs Branch Baptist Church and was a devout worker for the Lord. Visitation, Bible school, and attending worship services were some of her favorite activities. She showed so much compassion and love toward others and was always trying to make a difference in someone’s life. Even during her times of sickness she was always trying to do the Lord’s work and get someone new to go to church. She had many favorite scriptures, one of which was Jude 1:22, “And of some have compassion, making a difference.”

Surviving, along with her father, Ted: her children, Ronnie Ashmore Jr. and Jennifer Ashmore of Fayetteville, Gregg and Amanda Davis of Oak Hill, and Cara Ashmore of Paint Creek; grandchildren, Davin Davis, Elijah Donnally, Kaitlyn Ashmore and Emily Ashmore; brothers, Dan and Ruth Williams of Diamond and Scott and Lori Williams of Hernshaw; nieces, Ashley Williams and Kaylie Williams; and nephew, Joey Williams; and many friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ along with a special prayer partner, Katherine Bragg.

Funeral services were March 3 at the Packs Branch Baptist Church with Pastor Sam Vance officiating. Burial was at Gethsemane Memorial Gardens, Oak Hill.
