In Memory

Carol Litts - Class Of 1972

   Carol Anne Litts, age 60, of Jenkins, Kentucky, passed away on Tuesday July 15, 2014 at St. Joseph Hospice Center, Lexington, Kentucky.  She was born on March 30, 1954 at Norton, Virginia, and was a lifelong resident of Jenkins, Kentucky.  She was a graduate of Jenkins High School and attended the University of Kentucky before returning home to take over the family business.  She was serving her third term for the Jenkins City Council; she served on the Mountain Heritage Festival Committee and was Chairman of the Raymond C. Litts Memorial Golf Tournament.  Carol Anne had formerly served on the Jenkins Community Hospital Board of Directors, was a past member of the Jenkins Days Committee, and was the past president of the Elkhorn County Club Ladies Golf Tournament.  She was business owner for over thirty-six years, as the owner of the Flower House in Jenkins.  Carol Anne was very proud to have served the community, she strove for perfection in what she did, and held the notable distinction of doing weddings in five states.  She loved her dogs all of her life, she enjoyed travelling extensively and was an avid golfer and swimmer.  She was as much a fan of the University of Kentucky Wildcats as anyone, which caused friction with her mother, when the wildcats played her mother’s alma mater, the University of Louisville.  She had a rich full life and a plethora of friends with whom she enjoyed her life. 

   She was preceded in death by her father, Raymond C. Litts.

   Carol Anne is survived by her mother, Thelma Hidvegi Litts, of Jenkins, Kentucky; her brother, Stevie Joe Litts, of Jenkins, Kentucky; several cousins; several special friends, Wendy Jones, Patty Wood, Debbie Hogg, Lisa Sanders, Kathy Sergent, Edith Davis, Jo Ann Baldwin, Kim Page and Sandy Spears; her beloved pets, Holly and Scooby; and a host of other family and friends. 

   Visitation will be held on Thursday July 17, 2014 after 6:00 PM at Carty Funeral Homes Polly & Craft Chapel.  Funeral services will be held on Friday July 18, 2014 at 1:00 PM at Jenkins United Methodist Church with Larry Penix officiating.  Entombment will follow at Powell Valley Memorial Gardens, Big Stone Gap, Virginia

I taught Carol when she was in the fifth grade.  She was a leader even at that young age.  Carol was an excellent student and I have fond memories of her.  I'm sorry to hear of her passing.
