Carol was born August 14, 1939 in Kansas City, Missouri, daughter of the late Edwin Ray Clement and the late Irene Stewart Clement. She married the love of her life in 1958 and became a Navy wife for the next 20 years. Carol was a successful homemaker, moving her family of 5 numerous times up and down both East and West coasts including Hawaii. In 1973, a final move back to Charleston brought her to St. Francis Hospital where she worked for the next 27 years. For many years Carol worked as their director of admissions.

Her love for interior design and gardening was evident by her magazine-worthy home and garden. Carol's love for sewing was seen in the beautiful clothes she made for her children and grandchildren. She especially loved sewing her famous Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls as well as curtains and quilts for all of her family.

Carol's smile represented who she was on the inside. Many were struck by her beauty and grace. She was a mentor and role model for many, including her own children who she raised to be successful professional adults with college degrees. She was the rock of her family!

In addition to her husband, of 63 years, Carol is survived by her daughter, Julie Bryson Bell (Brian); her sister, Lenore Rae Berry; her daughter-in-law, Sherry Gilston Bryson; her grandchildren, Jacob Jackson Bryson, Tabitha Taylor (Joshua), Christopher Brian Bell, Logan Bryson Bell; her great-grandchildren, Lillian Marie Taylor and Madilyn Shea Taylor; her nephews, Patrick Morris Berry and Robert Ray Berry; and her niece, Barbara Lenore Berry.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Kathleen Bryson and her son, Timothy Ray Bryson.
