In Loving Memory Of...
Nancy M. (Peterson) Carroll, 87, of Findlay went to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, January 1, 2013 at her residence. Nancy was born on July 22, 1925 in Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania to Andrew and Mina Peterson. Nancy graduated from Practical Bible Training Institute in New York. Nancy’s occupations included missionary work at Bethel Children’s Home in Kentucky, secretary, and most importantly a pastor’s wife for over 50 years in churches in West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina. Nancy enjoyed teaching children’s Bible classes, organizing special ladies’ meetings, and visiting people with her husband. Nancy was known for sending cards and notes of encouragement. One of her greatest gifts was hospitality and she enjoyed having guests in her home. Nancy was a member of Calvary Baptist Church, Findlay, and we appreciate their kindness and support.
Nancy is survived by her husband of 61 years, whom she married on August 11, 1951, Randolph Carroll Jr.; children, Janet (Mark) Blackburn, of Galena, Ohio, Joyce (Jay) Anderson, of Findlay, Ohio, Jayne (Jeff) Reason, of Nova Scotia, and Jim (Diana) Carroll, of Glen Mills, Pennsylvania; 16 grandchildren; and 16 great-grandchildren. Nancy was preceded in death by her parents; a brother, Andrew Peterson; her beloved sister, Isobel Maxim; and an infant granddaughter, Diana Reason
