Age - 89

Carolyn Hughes Nagle, 89, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, November 26. Funeral services will be held on Friday, December 1 at 3:00 pm at Joyner’s Funeral Home, 4100 Raleigh Road Parkway, Wilson. Rev. Dr. Benjamin Williams will officiate. Family will receive friends on Friday, December 1 from 1:30 pm until 3:00 pm at Joyner’s Funeral Home. Carolyn was born in Elizabethton, TN on November 24th, 1934 to Samuel Eugene and Ida Pearl Hughes. From an early age, it was clear that God blessed Carolyn with a special musical gift—one which she used to share God’s love with others. She taught piano and played for worship services, weddings, funerals, and other life celebrations. Music was one of the great loves of her life. And it was through music, that she met the love of her life when she was just 16 years old. Working as a pianist for Brick Christian Church, she was asked to play an accompaniment for a young vocalist and theology student from Milligan College. She would go on to accompany him in life and music ministry for the next 55 years, serving multiple churches and leading music at the Mountain Christian Churches Convention. In retirement Carolyn continued to serve in church administration and music ministry for Winstead United Methodist and Forest Hills Presbyterian Church. Her legacy resides in her family. She loved her children fiercely, and she adored her grandchildren and great grandchildren; they bore the marks of her love in the lipstick kisses she often left on their cheeks. She also enjoyed annual retreats to Emerald Isle, a good paperback, cooking for her family, good movies, a strong cup of coffee, and the Green Bay Packers. Carolyn is preceded in death by her husband, Rollie. She is survived by her children, Nancy Nagle Batchelor (Stephen) of Wilson; Roland Eugene "Gene" Nagle (Barbara) of Wilson; and Janet Nagle Barnes (Brent) of Winston-Salem. Sister-in-law, Susie Nagle Nagase (Maseru) of Wilson. She was also blessed with six grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
