Carol B. Ragin, daughter of the late Carl Broadnax, Sr. and Aelene Cole Broadnax was born March 10, 1952. She departed this life peacefully on May 2, 2018. She was preceded in death by her brothers Carl Broadnax, Jr., Frederick Broadnax, and Charles Cole.  Carol was educated in the Leaksville (Eden) school system and graduated from John Motley Morehead High School in Eden, NC. At an early age, she joined St. John United Methodist Church. She was employed for many years at Miller Brewing (Eden, NC) and later at Stroh’s Brewery (Winston Salem, NC). She met and married her loving husband, Henry Ragin and the two settled in Sanford, NC.  There are people in life who leave a lasting impression. Carol was that person. To know her was to love her. There was never a dull moment while in her presence. She loved crocheting and reading. Carol loved holidays and family get-togethers; any chance to spend time with her family was important to her. There was nothing Carol liked better than striking up a conversation with a good (or new) friend. She could have an engaging conversation with anyone.  She was known for her feisty, yet good sense of humor. Carol was a devoted wife and loving mother. She was very proud of her family and was the proud “Wa-Wa”/Grandma to her 3 grandchildren. Carol will forever be adored by: her devoted husband, Henry G. Ragin of the home; daughter: Monteece Clark of Eden, NC; step-son, Yancey Ragin (Tomeka) of Pittsburgh, PA; granddaughters: Dakota Clark-Robinson and India Clark-Robinson, both of Eden, NC; grandson: Elijah Ragin of Pittsburgh, PA; three sisters: Margaret Broadnax-Colbert (Ron) of Eden, NC, Annie B. Corbett of Fort Walton Beach, FL, and Linda B. Richardson (Steve) of Jacksonville, FL; two brothers: Jerry Broadnax of Eden, NC, and Timothy Broadnax of Durham, NC; sister-in-law: Margaret Ragin Dunmore (Michael)of SC; brother-in-law: Lorenzo Rivers (Gaile)of SC; lifelong  friends: Rivers Millner of Eden, NC and Diane Motley of Eden, NC; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and extended family. Carol will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
