Virginia M. Carroll, surrounded by her cherished family, entered into eternal rest August 26, 2023. She was 87 years old.

Virginia was born December 25, 1935 to the late Mr. Ollie Goings and Mrs. Byrice Rodeheaver Goings in Atlanta, Georgia. Along with her parents, she is preceded in death by her siblings: Donald Goings, Richard Goings, and Grady Goings. She was a member of Porterfield Baptist Church and enjoyed attending services when able. As a homemaker, she was quite talented in the kitchen and could whip up a good southern meal in no time. Taking care of others was the joy of her heart. Virginia was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother and will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
