Carolyn Weeks White, age 85, passed away on February 16, 2024, in her home after a long fight with dementia.  She is survived by her loving husband, Jack White, sons, Preston White, (Gay Nell), Greg White (Donna), and daughter, Janet Lovet (Art).  She is also survived by her grandchildren, Amanda Beckham (Jonathan), Honey Ferguson (John), Martha Austin (Matt), John Duncan Anderson, Sarah Childers (Jonathan), Meghan Mathis (Josh), Brooke Lovett, and David Largin (Veronica).  She doted on her many great grandchildren, Melanie & Matilda Beckham, Heidi, Charlotte & Timothy Ferguson, Jackson & Chase Austin, Claire & Christian Childers, Beau, Peytyn, & Wyatt Largin, September & Levi Mathis.  Carolyn is preceded in death by her father & mother, Varney Preston & Martha Alois Weeks and sister Jolene Finley (Gordon) all of whom passed years before. 

She met her husband Jack in 1958 and they were married on May 15, 1960.  She was the love of his life for almost 64 beautiful years.  They moved to Birmingham in 1968 where they raised their family.  She attended Shades Mountain Baptist Church and taught Sunday School for many years. 

 
Carolyn’s battle with dementia was long and many times difficult, but she was in her home surrounded by her loved ones until the very end.  She was not just a mother of three, she was a mother to many.  She touched many lives and brought joy to all.  She was a Godly example to everyone who knew her.  Praise God she is Home!


 Proverbs 31: 1-31  (Mom)

1The sayings of King Lemuel—an inspired utterance his mother taught him.  Listen, my son! Listen, son of my womb! Listen, my son, the answer to my prayers! Do not spend your strength on women, your vigor on those who ruin kings.  It is not for kings, Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine, not for rulers to crave beer, lest they drink and forget what has been decreed and deprive all the oppressed of their rights.  Let beer be for those who are perishing, wine for those who are in anguish!  Let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more.  Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute.  Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.  10 A wife of noble character who can find?  She is worth far more than rubies.  11 Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.  12 She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life.  13 She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands.  14 She is like the merchant ships, bringing her food from afar.  15 She gets up while it is still night; she provides food for her family and portions for her female servants.  16 She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.  17 She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.  18 She sees that her trading is profitable, and her lamp does not go out at night.  19 In her hand she holds the distaff and grasps the spindle with her fingers.  20 She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.  21 When it snows, she has no fear for her household; for all of them are clothed in scarlet.  22 She makes coverings for her bed; she is clothed in fine linen and purple.  23 Her husband is respected at the city gate, where he takes his seat among the elders of the land.  24 She makes linen garments and sells them and supplies the merchants with sashes.  25 She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.  26 She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.  27 She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.  28 Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: 29 “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.”  30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.  31 Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.


 Proverbs 18:22 (Dad)

The man who finds a wife finds a treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord
