Carol Ann Holman Gonzales, 85, of Amarillo, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, January 27, 2024. She was born September 25, 1938, to Larry E. Holman and Francis Lester Holman.
Carol grew up in Canyon, Texas, and she graduated from Canyon High School in 1956. She went on to West Texas State College and graduated with a B.A. in English in 1959. She retired from a 25-year career in the Social Security Administration office.
Carol was very active in her faith, and she became a 3rd order Carmelite and faithfully served for roughly 40 years.
During her life, she put others above herself and would not hesitate to help anyone she could. She was bold in her faith and would tell the gospel and speak about Jesus everywhere she went. She loved animals, all of them, and frequently rescued them and brought them home for good! She was a mother and friend to many.
Carol was preceded in death by her mother and father; her daughters Lisa and Kim, and her son, David.
Those left to cherish her memory are her brother, Larry R. Holman; her grandchildren, Chris Wilkinson, Cherokee Wilkinson, Callie Ethier, Ryan Ethier, and Megan Gonzales; and her great-grandchildren, Cylus, Payten, Kelsie and Carson, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Carol also had many “adopted” kids and a few adults too that she truly loved from Boys Ranch. There are way too many to write individually. If you knew her, you are one of them!
A Celebration of Life will be held at 10:00 a.m. February 9, 2024, at Accelerate Church at 4400 S. Crockett St., in Amarillo, Texas.
