Obituary for Carolyn Denley

Carolyn  Denley
Carolyn Whitworth Denley, 78, entered into her heavenly home from Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford on Thursday, February 15, 2018. Born October 31, 1939, in Calhoun City, she was the daughter of the late Bonner Whitworth and the late Mae Goodson Whitworth. Carolyn was a member of New Gauley Freewill Baptist Church. She was married to Gilbert Alvin Denley, Sr. for over 50 years before his passing in 2010, and together they raised five wonderful children. She graduated from Calhoun City High School in 1957, and went on to Itawamba Community College to pursue a business degree. She retired from Kellwood Co. in Calhoun City after 43 years of service. She was well known for her caring heart and giving soul. Her gracious work with the children of Calhoun County earned her recognition and an honorary award from Excel. In her free time she enjoyed going places with friends. One popular destination was Branson, Mo. Each time she got home she said “I ain’t never going back!”, only to return again. Her family will always remember the time they were “run out” of Graceland after Carolyn was caught sneaking around the back of the pool trying to find Elvis. Ms. Carolyn also taught line-dancing years ago on Thursday nights at the American Legion. Above all, the most important thing in her life was her family. She cherished the time spent with the kids and grandkids, and her memory will live on forever in their hearts.
Pryor Funeral Home is honored to be serving the family.
A funeral service celebrating her life will be held Sunday, February 18, 2018, at 3:00pm at Pryor Funeral Home. There will also be a visitation on Sunday, February 18, 2018 from 1:00pm until service time at the funeral home. Bro. Roger Reeder, Bro. Mike Smith, and Bro. Jimmy Vance will be officiating. Interment will follow at Chapel Hill Cemetery in Big Creek, MS.
Serving as pallbearers will be Jordan Denley, Jonathan Denley, Jon Garrett Denley, Coley Denley, Dan Griffith, and J.B. Long. Honorary pallbearers will be Sam Hamblin, Catlin Doler, Jody Doler, Kevin Doler, and Barney Wade.
She leaves behind a daughter, Laura (Dan) Griffith of Amory, MS; four sons, Gilbert (Glenda) Denley of Calhoun City, Garry (Cindy) Denley of Horn Lake, MS, Michael (Laurie) Denley and Heath Denley both of Big Creek; two sisters, Linda Doler of Calhoun City and Colleen Clark of Houston, MS; eight grandchildren, Chris (Beth) Denley of Hernando, MS, Coley (Heather) Denley of Hernando, MS, Jonathan (Machele) Denley of Calhoun City, Jordan Denley of Vardaman, Lauren Denley (J.B.) Long of Tupelo, Jon Garrett Denley of Big Creek, Sydney Griffith ,and Reese Griffith both of Amory; eight great-grandchildren, Jemma Denley, Layne Denley, William Denley, Hudson Denley, Hadley Denley, Houston Denley, Ainsley Denley, and Anniston Denley.
She was preceded in death by her parents, and husband, Gilbert Alvin Denley, Sr.
