Carol Little Keziah, 78, passed on Friday, September 11, 2020 after a 3-month fight combatting complications from surgery. She was born February 13, 1942 in Charlotte, NC to the late Marjorie T. and Vaughn F. Little.
Carol married Glynn W. Keziah in October 1959 and three children were born from this union. The couple raised their family in Charlotte, NC and later moved to their farm near Monroe, NC. Carol was a homemaker when her kids were young, then owned and operated several small businesses over the years with her husband. She spent the last 15 years of her working life at Lowe’s Home Improvement, from which she retired.
Carol loved spending time working in her garden; she was known for her green thumb and always kept an impeccable yard filled with colorful flowers and decorations. Carol had a great love for her animals and would keep any stray animal that came her way; she was lovingly known as “The cat lady”. She also spent many years raising Pomeranians.
Most of all Carol was known for the love and great pride she had for her family. She loved spending her free time with them, laughing and always bringing her smile and spunky personality. She was known for making every Holiday fun but especially Christmas – walking into her home was like entering a Christmas wonderland. She was Mrs. Clause herself. She was a loving and caring person, devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend, always thinking of others first. “To know her was to love her.”
Carol leaves to cherish her loving memory her husband Glynn W. Keziah, daughter Debbie Garmon (Tommy), brother James Stephen Little, Grandchildren, Trina K. Turner (Corey), Travis Kjos (Meagan), Tyler Kjos (Noelle), Katie Bryson (Chris), Blake Garmon, Taylor Garmon, and 9 Great Grandchildren.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents Vaughn F. and Marjorie T. Little, her brother David N. Little, and her children Carol Roy Keziah and Glynn Michael Keziah.
