Carole Ruth Rayhons, the daughter of Aurther and Rosa (Cadle) Rogers, was born December 27, 1947, in Nebo, West Virginia. She attended Clay County High School and graduated with the class of 1965. In 1967 Carole enlisted in the United States Navy, and served in Navy intelligence. She proudly served her country during the Vietnam War, and was honorably discharged in 1969.
On May 17, 1969, Carole married Laurence Leo Rayhons in Texas. The couple would be blessed with three children: Rachael, Christopher, and Matthew. The couple moved to Lenox in the spring of 1975 and Carole began her life as a farm wife. She gave everything to her family, working selflessly to make sure all her family’s needs were met. She was also very involved with her church family at St. Patricks Catholic Church.
She enjoyed tending to her lawn and gardens. Carole also liked to make plum jelly and many other preserves. She also had a love for cooking, baking, scrapbooking, and raising chickens.
Left to cherish her memory is her husband, Laurence “Larry”, of Lenox; children: Rachael Reed of Lenox and Matt Rayhons and wife Kashayla of Lenox; grandchildren: Alexandrea Meinders and husband Christopher, Dusten Reed, Madison, Phoenix, and Nova Rayhons; and niece, Karla Pierson and husband Mike of Blue Knob, West Virginia.
Preceding Carole in death were her son, Christopher Michael; parents, Aurther and Rosa; three brothers: John, Earl, and Jerry; two sisters: Virginia and Mary.
