Carol Small (Holterhoff)

We are sad to report the passing of our friend and JTHS65 Classmate Carol Ann Small  into her Heavenly Father's arms on Saturday, June 12, 2021 at The Hospice of East Texas.

HER OBITUARY READS: A visitation service for Carol, 74, of Tyler, will be held on Friday, June 18, 2021from 11:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at Burks Walker Tippit Funeral Home.A graveside service will follow at 1:00 p.m. at Tyler Memorial Cemetery.

Carol was born October 21, 1946 in Tyler to Harold Patrick Small and Edna Ruth McGehee Small.

While in high school, she was a proud member of the John Tyler High School Band and graduated in 1965. In 1966 Carol graduated Federal Business Institute in Tyler.  She worked 40 years in the engineering department at Southwestern Bell Telephone Company as a drafting clerk.  She loved her work and the people she came to know there.

At the age of 30 years, she invited Jesus into her heart and became a Christian in a country church in Palestine, Texas.  At her passing, she was a member of Gateway Baptist Church in Whitehouse, Texas.

When she wasn't working, she loved to travel.  She toured the east coast, west coast and Hawaii, but the state of Maine was her hands-down favorite.

She was preceded in death by her parents and two husbands, Harry Small and Kenneth Holterhoff. She is survived by two brothers, Ted Small and wife, Jonna of Forney and Tim Small of San Antonio: one sister, Pat Ford and husband, C. H. of Tyler, plus a host of well-loved nieces and nephews.

Pallbearers will be Josh Small, Jeremy Small, David Small, James Mooring, Trey Ford and Ben Colburn.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to The Hospice of East Texas Foundation, 4111 University Blvd., Tyler.

Carol was a close friend during school and we reconnected through FB.  I have fond memories of her and her family who I met when we would visit at each others homes.  I knew that she had suffered with Cancer in the past and it had come back.  She had way to much loss in her life, but she cared for each and everyone of her loved ones and I know has a very flashy jeweled crown.  Hope to meet again when we all meet in Heaven.
