Carol Sue Patton, age 77, longtime Leamington Community resident, passed from this life August 5, 2018 at Ferrell Hospital in Eldorado. Carol was born February 4, 1941 in Eldorado, IL to the late Eugene and Mildred (Wilson) Endicott. On June 28, 1958 she married the love of her life, Rev. Robert Patton, who survives.
A woman of deep faith, Carol wove her love for Jesus into every aspect of her life. Whether it was through homemaking, her work at Mad Pricer, mothering her family, or helping her husband on the farm Carol found a way to shine the light of Jesus within her.
Carol was an avid camper who loved to fish. Anyone with patients and a pole was welcome to join her by the banks of her pond to enjoy both creation and her creator. If she wasn’t found crafting, camping, fishing, or shopping at Wal-Mart, she was playing hymns on her piano; all favorite pastimes of Carols.
She was a member of the Pisgah General Baptist Church where she was very active, especially in Bible School.
Carol’s contagiously fun spirit made her much beloved, not only by her immediate family, but also among her many nieces and nephews. Her laughter, wit, and seemingly boundless love will be greatly missed.
