Obituary for Carol June (Farris) Rayfield

Carol June (Farris) Rayfield, age 81, lifelong resident of Lenoir City, TN was called home to meet our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Monday, September 3rd, 2018 at her home. Carol was born June 24th, 1937 to Varley and Gladys Farris. Carol was a 1955 graduate of Lenoir City High School and she later worked as a switchboard operator at the telephone company in Lenoir City. Most notably, Carol is remembered as the heart of her family, having dedicated her life to the home and her roles as a housewife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

Carol was active for many years at Pleasant Hill Baptist and Friendship Baptist churches where she is fondly remembered for her remarkable ability to reach out and touch others with her beautiful singing voice and wonderful piano playing. One of her favorite hymns to sing and play was "God On The Mountain" which she wrote an additional verse for. Carol loved and lived for precious time with family and friends. She enjoyed preparing wholesome meals for anyone who happened to stop by. She always enjoyed visits with her special canine friend, Carl, who she said could always make her laugh. Most of all, Carol enjoyed fellowship, talking to people about the Lord, and guiding them to lead a true life.

Carol was preceded in death by her father and mother, Varley and Gladys Farris; sister, Bernice Farris; sister, Maxine Thompson; brother, Wayne Farris.

Carol will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 56 years, Clyde Samuel Rayfield; daughter, Robyn Lynne Blanton; son, Bradley Clyde Rayfield; and sister, Mary Liles; sisters-in-law, Reba Cusick, Jean Duff, Gail Farris; and special family friend Rachel Chatfield.

Carol will also be forever cherished by her grandchildren: Barry Nolan Blanton, Jr. (wife, Christina), Joshua Brandon Blanton, Brittany Amber Guinn (husband, Brad), and Bradley Clyde Rayfield, II; great-grandchildren: Maci, Grayson, and Noah Guinn, and Beau Blanton.
