Carol Marie (Lightle) Sawyers

February 16, 1940 - July 21, 2020
Age: 80
Residence: Bolivar, MO
Formerly of: Weaubleau, MO

Carol Marie Sawyers departed this life and went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 21, 2020, after a short battle with cancer.

          Carol was the oldest daughter of Ralph and Wanda (Forehand) Lightle.  Carol attended Quincy public school and later graduated from Weaubleau high School in 1958.

          In 1960 she met Jack Sawyers and they were married December 31, 1960, and to this union three children were born: Anthony, Tammy, and Terry.

          She was preceded in death by her parents Ralph and Wanda Lightle; a brother Gene Lightle; and a grandson Jeffrey Colton Sawyers.

          Carol was saved at the age of 14 and loved her Savior, which was evident in the way she lived her life.  She was a homemaker and also taught her children to love the Lord.  She enjoyed reading, sewing, quilting, embroidering, cross word puzzles, and watching Jeopardy.

          She is survived by her husband of 59 years Jackie Sawyers; her children: Anthony Sawyers (Sonya) of Flemington, MO, Tammy Cox (Robert) of Nevada, MO, and Terry Sawyers (Rachel) of Wheatland, MO; six grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren; a brother Bob Lightle (Sandra) of Weaubleau, MO; a sister Mary Honeyfield (Norman) of West Plains, MO; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

          Carol will be greatly missed by her family, church family, and friends.  We love her and take great comfort in knowing that we will see her again!

          Visitation will be held Saturday, July 25, 2020, from 10:00 to 11:00 am at Pitts Chapel.  The funeral service will follow at 11:00 am in the funeral home with burial to follow at Humansville Cemetery.  Memorial contributions may be made to the Carrie J. Babb Cancer Center Bolivar, MO.  Online condolences may be made at: www.greenlawnfuneralhome.com.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Pitts Chapel Bolivar, MO.
