Carol Ann Rawson, 71, went home to be with the Lord on His birthday, Wednesday, Dec. 25, 2019.
Carol was born and raised in Bay Shore Long Island, New York, and was proud of her New York heritage. She got to see her favorite team, the New York Giants, defeat the Redskins in person at the last game of the 2019 season this past Sunday. She also enjoyed her many friends in the community and playing Bunco with the girls.
Carol was preceded in death by her parents, Clayton E. and Harriett R. Fountain; as well as her brothers, Harold and Clayton Jr.
She is survived by her loving family, husband, William “Bill” Rawson; daughter, Lisa M. Saunders (Doug); son, Gregory A. Rawson (Candy); grandchildren, Morgan West (Chris), Justin Fisher, Tristen Pendergrass, Robert Starke, Madison Rawson, Brianna Wallace and Kendall Wallace; great-grandchildren, Caleb, Madelynn and Hannah West, who made her eyes shine when she bragged on them.
The family would like to thank Dr. Celeste Bremer and all the angels working at Virginia Oncology, Princess Anne, for their wonderful care over the years, and to the wonderful staff at Bayside Infusion Center for all they did over the past months.
A celebration of life will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 28, with visitation one hour prior, at Smith and Williams Funeral Home, 4889 Princess Anne Road, Virginia Beach.
