Johnnie Jo Carroll, 93, of Madill, Oklahoma, passed away Sunday, February 3, 2019, at the Grace Living Center in Norman, Oklahoma. Johnnie was raised at Breckenridge, Texas. She attended and graduated from the Caddo Schools. Johnnie was Valedictorian of her graduating senior class. She married her husband, John Dudley Carroll on December 18, 1943. They had one daughter Janice Ann. Johnnie became a Christian at the age of 13. She taught Sunday School for 30 years. Was active in Women's Missionary Union. Served as a G.A. leader and Action leader for many years in the various places she and John lived. They lived in Breckenridge, Odessa, Andrews, Abilene, Texas before her husband's oil company moved them to Elmore City, Oklahoma. They lived at Elmore City for 29 years before retiring and moving to Madill in 1983 to be near Lake Texoma. Both were avid fishermen and spent many happy and enjoyable hours together on the lake. They enjoyed traveling in their R.V. to lakes and parks all over the U.S. and always marveled at the beauty of this land our God had created. During World War II John served in the Navy and Johnnie worked and lived where John was stationed until he was sent overseas. When the War was over, and John came home they started their family. They had the one daughter Janice Ann. While raising their daughter Johnnie worked faithfully in Parent Teachers Association, Home Room Mothers, Band Parents and all and any school activities. Always willing to help any place she was needed. After raising her daughter Johnnie went back to work as a bookkeeper and secretary for 15 years. She was a 25-year member of Extension Homemaker Clubs, worked with 4-H Clubs, County and State Fairs. Johnnie enjoyed cooking and was known for her delicious pies and hot rolls and could always seat one more at her table. She loved cooking and having all their families together at her and John's home for Thanksgiving and Christmas and anytime they could all get together. Her family was her life, and everything revolved around them. She loved being a wife to John for 60 years and a mother to Janice. She thought becoming a Grandparent was the best thing ever and granddaughter Millie brought an abundance of fun, joy and happiness to her life. When great granddaughter Gracie came, she felt the love, devotion and joy that they brought to her life made her life so complete and she thanked God every day for them.
