Sarah Ethel Carswell, 91, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday, May 27, 2011. She was preceded in death by her husband, Leo Carswell; her son-in-law, Ronnie Amos; and her brother-in-law, Buren Carswell.
She is survived by her daughter, Judy Amos, of Rutherfordton, N.C.; one brother, Earl Taylor, and wife, Mabel, of Mill Spring; one sister, Addie Mae Carswell of Tryon; one granddaughter, Jennifer Shoenfeflt, of Rutherfordton; one grandson, Michael Amos, and wife, Kim, of Rutherfordton; three great-grandchildren, Hunter Shoenfelt, Will Amos and Caroline Amos, all of Rutherfordton; and numerous other friends and relatives.
She was a member of Pea Ridge Baptist Church in Mill Spring and retired from Doncaster/Tanner Corporation after more than 20 years of service. She will be remembered by many as a master seamstress who created countless beautiful garments – and as a person who always put others before herself. Her sweet and loving nature will surely be missed by us all.
In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Autumn Care of Forest City, or Pea Ridge Baptist Church of Mill Spring.
Funeral services were held Sunday, May 29 at Pea Ridge Baptist Church. Burial followed in the church cemetery.
Crowe’s Mortuary and Chapel was in charge of arrangements. Online condolences may be made at
