Carolyn was born Feb. 1, 1955, in Madisonville, Texas, to Rosa Lee (Crouch) and Mitchell NeSmith Sr., the third of five children. She married her best friend and love of her life, Charles William Wellmann, June 2, 1973. They were blessed with two children, Marsha Elaine and William Ray.
Carolyn is best known for her kind and generous heart, always taking care of everyone. She also had a dry sense of humor and liked to pick on her brother-in-law, Tracy. Carolyn loved her Lord and never doubted the plan He had in store for her. She was a faithful member of Friedens Church of Washington, UCC, dedicated to attending service every Sunday.
Carolyn lived most of her life in Navasota, graduating from Navasota High School. She held many jobs throughout the years, always working hard to help support her family. She worked for 20 years as an instructional aide for Navasota ISD, as well as 20 years managing the Subway of Navasota. Many of these years were spent working two jobs. She was a hard worker and would run circles around the best of them.
She was an avid University of Texas Longhorn sports fan. She enjoyed listening to the king of rock and roll, Elvis Presley, and the king of country music, George Strait.
Carolyn is survived by husband, Charles; daughter and son-in-law, Marsha and Wesley Murrell of Houston; son, William Wellmann of Navasota; sister, Linda NeSmith of Brazoria; brother and sister-in-law, Mitchell Ne-Smith Jr. and Kay of Clear Lake; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Tracy and Effie Wellmann and Craig and Cindy Wellmann, all of Washington; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her mother and father-in-law; her younger sister, Sharon Steinbach; baby brother, Jimmy NeSmith; and beloved boxer, Hallie.
