August 31, 1931 - February 28, 2022
Carol S. Ewing, age 90 of Rehoboth Beach, DE and formerly of Wilmington, DE, closed her circle of life on February 28, 2022. She was born on August 31, 1931, in Ashland, PA, daughter of the late Wiliam F. and Mabel (Balliet) Smith. Carol was a graduate of Henry C. Conrad High School in Wilmington, DE, Class of 1949. She always felt every class reunion to be a special time with her many friends. Carol was also a graduate of Goldey-Beacom College and worked for Hercules, Inc. as an executive secretary, retiring after 28 dedicated years. In 1991, she and her husband, Bob, built a home in Rehoboth Beach, and Sussex County became home to them. Epworth United Methodist Church filled a very important part of their lives, and Carol was a member of the United Methodist Women, including the Elizabeth Circle, the Cancer in Common support group, and the Chancel Choir. She was always very proud of the fact that she was a continuous choir member since the age of 10. For all those who will miss her, just remember that somewhere in heaven, she is enjoying many new adventures surrounded by those she loved who were awaiting her arrival. In addition to her parents, Carol was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 48 years, Robert A. Ewing, in 2000; her son, Robert A. Ewing, Jr., in 1981 at the age of 20; and her brother, William A. Smith, in 2009. She is survived by her daughters: Kathy Ewing Ruff (Fred) of Lewes, DE and Julie Ewing Jolley (Brandon) of Leander, TX; her granddaughters: Jillian Schuler (Phillip) and Chelsea Thornton (Joshua); and her great-granddaughters: Isabelle, Danica, and Laylah Rose Thornton and Kendall Schuler.
