Obituary for Carolyn Elizabeth Johnston Poole

June 25, 1964 - July 16, 2019
Owensboro, Kentucky | Age 55


On July 16, 2019, Heaven's light began to shine a little brighter as Carolyn Elizabeth Johnston Poole, 55, of Owensboro, gained her angel wings. Carolyn was born in Hammond, IN, to the late Lynn and Ora Lee Johnston on June 25, 1964. She was the life of the party and loved everyone. Carolyn was so full of sass, but also known to be a little redneck. The only thing she loved more than the beach was her family, and they will miss her very much.

She was preceded in death by her brother, Alan Johnston; and sister, Sherri Johnston.

Carolyn leaves behind to mourn her a very heartbroken family; her husband of 39 years, Ellis Poole; children, Christal (Aaron; who always claimed to be the favorite kid), Shawn (Melissa), and Natasha (Ronnie); grandchildren, Blaze (Madeline), Cherysh, Keiara, Logan, Shayne, Aleeah, Madyson, Brooklyn, Brayden, Lyric, Xavier, TJ, Brett, Monica, Skyler, and Ryder; her brothers, Randall, Terry, and Lynn (Cindy) Johnston; several nieces, nephews, and cousins, including two special cousins, Marlene and Diane; and many friends who were more like family.

The funeral service will be 4pm Saturday at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory. Burial will follow in Pleasant Grove Cemetery. Visitation will be 10am until 4pm Saturday at the funeral home.
