Mrs. Carol MacNamara
Mrs. Carol Myrtle (Deline) MacNamara, 74, passed away July 3, 2018 in Texarkana, Texas surrounded by her family.

She was preceded by her parents Ward Finley and Ruby Olena Deline; brothers, Franklin Deline, Gary Deline, and Ronald Deline.

She is survived by her loving husband Jerry MacNamara; four children, Mary Elizabeth (and husband, Michael) of Tucson, Arizona, Patrick Sean (and his beloved late wife, Tina) of Conway, Arkansas, Regina Marie (and husband, Raul) of Houston, Texas, Jeremiah Matthew (and wife, Ashley) of Chicago, Illinois; Grammy to seven grandchildren, Molly Elizabeth Hattabaugh, Meghan Leigh Hattabaugh, Matthew Michael Hattabaugh, Madeline Lee MacNamara, Creed Patrick MacNamara, Raul Xavier Christoph Hernandez III, and Sybil Caroline MacNamara; brother, Millard Deline (and wife, Virginia) of Sedro Woolley, Washington; sister Inez Aipperspach (and husband, Glen) of Anacortes, Washington.

Born January 18, 1944, in Wheeling, West Virginia, Carol was a 1962 graduate of Central High School in Aberdeen, South Dakota, and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Digital Art and Design in 1998 from Henderson State University. 

She met Jerry in Dallas, Texas while she was a stewardess for Braniff Airways while he was a Captain in the United States Army as a Flight Instructor based at Fort Wolters in Mineral Wells, Texas. They were married on November 5, 1966 at Christ the King Church in Dallas, Texas.

She was a fun-loving and deeply devoted Grammy to her seven grandchildren, which will leave an unforgettable legacy for generations. She had a passion for travel with five trips to Israel, two trips to Russia, two trips to Ethiopia, a tour of Ireland for her 50th wedding anniversary, and a trip to London.

She poured her heart and soul into her family and friends with a loving and gracious heart. Her life’s priority was to live to know Jesus Christ and make His Name known. She was influential in numerous peoples’ lives in their decision to accept Jesus as their Savior.

We are all honored and thankful to God for giving this world seventy-four years with this absolutely incredible woman.
