Elizabeth Carol Winston Howell
Elizabeth Carol Winston Howell passed away at her home in Seaboard, North Carolina on Saturday, April 7, 2018.
Carol was born on January 2, 1935 in Raleigh. She grew up in Granville County, North Carolina and attended Oak Hill High School. Carol received a B.S degree in Home Economics from Woman’s College of the University of North Carolina in Greensboro. After graduation, she served as an Assistant Agent and a Home Agent in the North Carolina Agricultural Extension Service in Northampton county for 3.5 years. She then taught high school at her alma mater for one year before returning to Northampton county to make her home, becoming a wife, mother, and grandmother deeply devoted to her family.
Carol was an active member of the Seaboard Baptist Church, where she served as a Sunday School teacher, the director of Bible School, and a member of the Women’s Missionary Union. She was also an active participant in her community in both formal and informal ways—for example, as a Meals on Wheels volunteer, an organizer for the town’s Christmas parade, or the first one to pitch in when an elderly neighbor needed to visit the grocery store or children were clamoring for a ride to the pool. Carol generously shared her time and resources with her friends and family, and her giving spirit was a blessing for her community.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents, George and Mildred Winston of Grassy Creek, NC, and her husband of 54 years, Charles Cornelius Howell (C.C).
She is survived by her brother: George Turner Winston (Cathy) of Roanoke, VA; her children: Catherine MacAllister (Mark) of Pittsboro and Elizabeth Parrish (Phil) of Wendell; her grandchildren: Manon Howell MacAllister and Cade Alan MacAllister of Raleigh; and her step-grandchildren: Matthew West Parrish and Elizabeth Ann Parrish of Clayton.
