In loving memory of Carol Simmons Batts

With heavy hearts, we come together to honor the life and legacy of Carol Simmons Batts, who passed away on March 10, 2024, in Wilmington, NC. Born on September 4, 1941, in the same city, Carol graced this world with her presence for 82 years.

A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, Carol touched the lives of many with her kindness and love. She was a cherished member of the community, actively involved in various organizations including Ogden Baptist Church, Eastern Star, and Ladies of the Shrine. Carol held dear the values of education and faith, having graduated from New Hanover High School.

Carol is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 62 years, Blaney “Boo” William Batts, as well as her parents, Charles Rhett Simmons and Lucille Smith Simmons. She is survived by her four children: Candy Batts Peterson (Allen), Patty Vernon (Mark), Blaney W. Batts, Jr., and Jonathan R. Batts (Katie). Her memory will forever be cherished by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who brought immeasurable joy to her life. Carol is also survived by her brother, Jackie Simmons (Mary).

Services to honor and celebrate Carol’s life will be held at 2:00 on Thursday, March 14, 2024, at Ogden Baptist Church, located at 7121 Market Street in Wilmington, NC. Led by Rev. Danny Justice, the family will receive friends from 1:00 to 2:00 at the church. Burial will be at Oleander Memorial Gardens.

To honor Carol's memory and continue her legacy of love and kindness, we kindly ask for your support in donating to Shriners Hospital for Children in her name. Your generous contributions will help make a difference in the lives of children in need, reflecting the compassion and generosity that Carol exemplified throughout her life.

Thank you for joining us in remembering and celebrating the beautiful life of Carol Simmons Batts.
