Carol Selvey

Carol Dorton Selvey went home to be with the Lord on February 2, 2019, after a 36 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis. She was born August 14, 1941 in Charlotte NC. She is survived by her devoted husband of 55 years, Richard, daughter Leigh Walters (Brian), son Cameron Selvey (Dena), and four grandchildren: Cory Walters, Jacob Selvey, Jessie Walters and Grayson Selvey. She is also survived by her sister Jo Richmond and nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother Edith Dorton Stuart, and her father Robert Dorton.

Carol graduated from Queens College with a degree in Sociology. She worked at Queens for  a time but her life was about family. The rest of her life was spent being a loving wife, mother and grandmother.
 
She had a passion for art. She loved to paint before MS made it impossible. She fought MS and related medical conditions with a fierce will, surviving several times when it seemed impossible.
 
Carol accepted everyone as a child of God. She believed the best in people. Carol loved the Lord and her Rocky River Church family. Her soft smile is lighting up heaven today.
