October 23, 1940 - May 4, 2020
Carolyn Jean Trail Woodyard, 79, passed away on Monday, May 4, 2020 at Hospice Home of Rockingham County surrounded by her local family. A graveside interment will be scheduled for a later date. A Pulaski County, VA native, Carolyn was born on October 23, 1940, to the late Willard and Mildred Long Trail. She loved crafting, cooking, and was an avid reader, but above all, she was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, and sister who put her family above anything else. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Thomas Woodyard; her sons, Steven Woodyard and Brian Woodyard; her sisters, Doris Fagg and Darlene Nester; and her brother, Curtis Trail. Carolyn survived multiple childhood illnesses and later went on to marry the love of her life Tom and establish a devoted family of three boys. Her earlier struggles helped shape her love for life and her devotion to ensuring those around her were always taken care of. She was a fighter and struggled with COPD and additional respiratory illnesses until the end, but not with complaints, but with gratitude that God had blessed her for so many years. Carolyn is survived by her son, Kenneth Woodyard, and Son-in-law Ronnie Tuttle of Madison; her brother, Doug (Norma)Trail of Pulaski, VA; and her daughter-in-law, Tanya Woodyard of Port Charlotte, FL. There are also her nieces Shelia Smith, Sherry Williams, Angie Whitt and nephew Jeff Trail as well as her loving friends along with her extended in-law family that always made her feel like one of their own. Ray Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Carolyn Woodyard and all are invited to share memories or offer condolences at www.rayfuneralhome.com.
