Carol H. Raymond, 82, of Lewistown, passed away Sunday, January 31, 2021, at Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital.
Born July 12, 1938, in Lewistown, she was a daughter of the late James A. and Clara E. (Gearhart) Henry.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by brothers, James A. Henry Jr. and Lawrence A. Henry, and a sister, Mary Ann Henry.
Carol is survived by her husband, Robert H. Raymond Jr., to whom she was married for 52 years. Also surviving are: sons, Robert H. Raymond III, of Yeagertown, and Timothy M. Raymond and wife, Jill, of Selinsgrove; grandchildren, Alexander and Abigail Raymond; and a brother, William E. Henry and companion, Barbara Harry, of Marana, Ariz.
Carol was a 1956 graduate of Lewistown High School. She earned her bachelor’s degree in education at Philadelphia College of Bible and her master’s degree from Wilkes College.
She was employed as a teacher in Mifflin County schools, primarily at Buchanan and Strodes Mills Elementary Schools for many years. After retirement, Carol remained an active member of the Pennsylvania State Education Association (PSEA) and Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees (PASR).
Carol was a dedicated and loving wife, mother and grandmother, with a wide group of friends from her many social, volunteer and service activities. She enjoyed playing cards with friends, puzzling with family, and traveling the world with her husband. She was a fun person who loved to laugh and loved a good joke. Most of all, Carol loved to help and serve others. She never missed an opportunity to cook a large holiday dinner, help friends and family in myriad ways, or spend time with her children and grandchildren.
Celebration of Life services will be held this summer at the convenience of the family.
