Graveside services for Carol Horton Green, 74, were held yesterday at 4:00 pm at Ebenezer Cemetery.
Carol passed away peacefully July 23, 2021, after a very brief illness. She was born in Alcorn County on January 20, 1947, to the late Thomas Reese Horton and Nila Faye (Bell) Horton. She was a member of First Methodist Church in Corinth, MS. Carol lived the first part of her life in Memphis, TN, where she graduated from Frayser High School. She worked at Sears and the Methodist Hospital in Memphis before returning to Alcorn County. Carol worked for almost 20 years as the Comptroller for Alcorn County. It was there where she met and married the love of her life, Johnny Green.
Carol was a kind, patient, compassionate, and loving person. She had such a sweet spirit, always giving of herself to others and never expecting anything in return. You could always depend on Carol to be there in your time of need. Never imposing on anyone, she choose to be a silent prayer warrior for her family, friends, and anyone in need.
She is survived by her caring stepson, Dow Green (Ginger); two precious granddaughters, Maggie and Brantley Green; sister-in-laws, Brenda Mills and Ann Harland Webster; special friends, Betty Spencer and Judy Hines; and several cousins. Carol was always telling her friends about her granddaughters accomplishments and how proud she was of Dow and his family.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Johnny; her parents, Thomas and Nila Faye (Bell) Horton; several aunts, uncles, and a host of other relatives.
Carol would not want us to grieve for her, but to rejoice in her home going. She would want us to remember the happy, fun times we shared. We are to look forward to seeing her again one day.
