In Loving

Carol Massey Didlake

January 25, 1946 – December 18, 2023

Carol Massey Didlake, age 77, of Goochland, formerly of Henrico and Mechanicsville, Virginia, and a native of King & Queen County, Virginia, went to be with her Lord Jesus Christ on Monday, December 18, 2023.

Carol was preceded in death by her parents, Paul and Florence Massey.  She is survived by her husband of 58 years, W.T. (Bill); two children, Tommy Didlake (Kathy) and Cindy Turner (Andy); six grandchildren, Brady and Lauren Didlake, Emily Turner Goin (Trevor), Kayley Turner Swartz (Douglas), Savannah (Aaron Evans) and Lyndsey Turner; one great-grandchild, Witt Goin; and one sister-in-law, Lillian White.

Over the years, Carol worked as a financial secretary for Ridge Baptist church, as a stay-at-home mom, and at Virginia Eye Institute. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.  When her health would allow, Carol was an active church and Sunday school member.  She enjoyed music, sports, and spending time with family, friends, and neighbors.  She always had words of love, encouragement, and support for those around her.  She will be deeply missed.
