Carol Ann Wimp Willard was called home by the Lord on Thursday, April 23, 2020.

Carol, the oldest child of Don and Marie (Kelley) Wimp, was born on Thursday, December 10, 1936 in Henderson, Texas. She was blessed with two brothers, David Winward and Steve Wimp. Carol graduated from Gravette High School in 1955 and married John Leslie Willard on March 13, 1956.

John and Carol made their home in Frankfurt, Kentucky and were blessed with two children, Donnie Leslie Willard and Mark Willard as well as grandchildren. Following John’s death, Carol and the boys moved to Joplin, MO where Carol lived the remainder of the life.

Carol was a homemaker and took pride in keeping a clean and tidy home. She enjoyed socializing and children. When she did work outside the home, she worked in a daycare center. During her final years, she enjoyed spending time with her friends at Spring River as well as her church family at 26th & Connecticut Church of Christ.

Carol was preceded in death by her parents and husband. She will be missed by family and friends who knew and loved her.
