Carol Booth Queen formerly of Huntington
Carol Booth Queen of Wilmington, NC (formerly of Huntington, WV) died on August 2, 2012. She was born on October 20, 1924 in Wayne, WV, the daughter of the late Fletcher Booth and Emily Hutchinson Booth. She was a member of First Baptist Church in Wilmington and a former member of Fifth Avenue Baptist Church in Huntington and the Wayne Baptist Church in Wayne. She and her late husband, Glenn, were members of the John Marshall Society of Marshall University. She worked many years in the Wayne County (WV) County Clerk’s office, and she also worked in the family business, Tradewell Supermarkets. Carol loved her family deeply and was always the most encouraging person to each and all of us. She enjoyed quilting, a craft she learned from her mother, and she made a unique quilt for each child, grandchild and great-grandchild, a gift each of them will treasure forever. The friends she made at Brightmore loved Carol and she loved them and enjoyed all the card games and board games they played. Those same friends were drawn to the beauty of the jewelry Carol made; each piece unique and distinctive. Carol was preceded in death by her husband, Glenn Queen; her daughter, Gail Queen Stephenson; and three brothers: Lawrence Booth and Donald Booth of Wayne, WV and Willis ‘Joe’ Booth of Dunbar, WV. Survivors include her son Mike Queen (Bobbie) of Wilmington; four grandchildren: Carolee Lambert, Brett Queen (Amy), and Shannon Pipkin (Chris) all of Wilmington, NC and Amy Knight (Jason) of Greensboro, NC.; eight great-grandchildren: Garrett Lee, Alex Lambert, Jordan And C.J. Pipkin, and Kamryn Queen, all of Wilmington, and Joshua, Jacob and Emma Grace Knight, all of Greensboro, NC; sisters-in-law, Pauline Booth and Lillian Queen and brother-in-law, Bernard Queen, and many wonderful nieces and nephews. The family expresses our deepest appreciation to all the staff at Brightmore, The Commons and the Lower Cape Fear Hospice for the love, care and attention they showered on Carol. All of them were simply the best. After a private family burial service, a memorial service will be held at11 a.m. on Saturday, August 4, 2012 at First Baptist Church, 411 Market Street, Wilmington, NC led by Rev. Jayne Davis and Dr. Frank Hawkins. The family will greet friends immediately after the service at the church.
