Carole R. Melvin, 75, went to be with the Lord Monday, December 25th, 2017 after a significant battle with cancer. The pain is over and a good race was run.
Carole was born December 11th, 1942 to the late Roy and Marjorie Ramey in Virginia Beach, VA. She is also predeceased by her brother Roy Ramey Jr.
A lifetime Virginia Beach resident, Carole retired as a teacher and School Improvement Specialist from the Virginia Beach School System and was recognized in Who’s Who Among America’s Teachers in 2004. She was also a member of Virginia Beach Christian Church. She will always be remembered for her green thumb, all the plants she nurtured, her love for cooking, and all the brownies and cookies she shared with everyone.
Carole is survived by her husband James, a daughter Linda M. Eastland and husband Rob, a son Wes Melvin and wife Jeannine and grandchildren Hunter, Parker, and Kayla and numerous nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will be conducted at a later date by Rev. Bill Austin at Princess Anne Memorial Park, 1110 N. Great Neck Road. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to VB Christian Church or Virginia Beach SPCA.
