All I have is sweet memories of dear Mrs. Carole. From her sunny office beside the kirk, her near constant presence at the Greenville A.R.P. Church of my childhood. My parents Joellen (Grier Cotten) and Russell Harris told me tonight something I never knew- that she held that office from my great-grandfather’s original planting of the church in the 1960s all the way to this millennium! What a peaceful and appropriate memory. Mrs Carole was truly the glue, and so much more. A gentle, reassuring, and whip smart woman. To Robbie and Family- all the best memories of your mom forever and ever. Joe

May you feel God's peace during this difficult time of loss. Carole was an amazing woman of God who always greeted me with the warmest, kindest smile and was always kind and glad to see me. I know she was indeed the "glue' that held things together over the years as her faith in the Lord carried her and guided her in her ministry to so many. She was always calm, and caring and welcoming. My prayers are with you and your family.

During my time spent with Mrs. Ellis she was always so kind to me and her face always lit up when she knew she had company. I will always remember her. Rest In Peace.

I remember Mrs. Ellis as my Sunday School teacher at Greenville ARP from 1996 to 1999. She was a wonderful person. Condolences to Stacey, Sheri, and Robbie in their loss.
