Nancy Louise (Joyner) Carroll, 82, of Wilmington, NC, entered her eternal home on Wednesday, March, 27, 2024 at Lower Cape Fear Lifecare Hospice.

She was born on December 19th, 1941 in Wilmington, NC, the daughter of the late Clyde Ebie Joyner and Lena Frances Foy Joyner.

Nancy served her Lord and community by being a faithful and dedicated member of Long Leaf Baptist Church. She took pride in her long tenure with Walmart and was honored to be a member of the Red Hat Society and the Order of the Eastern Star, which brought her great joy. Her greatest pleasure in life was creating memories with her children, grandchildren and great granddaughter.

Nancy’s memory lives on by her three children, Earl Carroll, Lydia Horne (Mark) and Jackie Edwards (Al) all of Wilmington, NC; four grandchildren, Tiffany Hahn (David), Lauren Horne, Carson Horne, Meagan Workman (Billy); great granddaughter, Laiken Mae Horne, and her two siblings, Robert Joyner and Alfred Joyner.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Clyde Ebie and Lena Foy Joyner; her husband Earlie Overton Carroll, II., sister, Frances Joyner Ellington, and two brothers, Clyde E. Joyner, Jr. and Roy Vance Joyner, Sr.

Funeral services to honor and celebrate Nancy’s life will be held at Long Leaf Baptist Church on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2024. The funeral service will begin at 1:00pm, followed by committal services at Greenlawn Memorial Park. The family will be receiving friends starting at noon at the church.

Pallbearers will be Carson Horne, Billy Workman, Nick Withers, Al Haraldson, Pat Haraldson and Randy Haraldson.

We would like to thank the gentle and compassionate staff at the Lower Cape Fear Hospice. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that memorial donations be made to the Lower Cape Fear Lifecare at the link above at “Memorial Gifts and Donations”.
