Proverbs 31 describes our Mother, Carol Anne Wheeler Posey. Carol was born July 25, 1939 in Temple, Texas. She got her angel wings August 18, 2021. She was the oldest daughter of Charles and Calel Wheeler. Carol met Richard on a blind date in Temple, TX, and on July 25, 1959 she married Richard David Posey and moved to Rotan, Texas. Rotan became her home for the next sixty years. Carol was an active member of the Rotan Church of Christ where she taught Bible classes, cooked meals and delivered her famous chocolate pies to newcomers. She loved her children and worked tirelessly to make sure they were grounded in faith and love for God and family. She was an active 4-H leader, room mother, band and sports parent. If you ever had the opportunity to sit by her at a game where one of her own was playing, you saw her get loud. For many years Carol found joy in keeping children in her home and they always had a special place in her heart as she watched them grow up. Nieces and nephews and their children learned early to watch for a birthday card from Aunt Carol and she never disappointed. Without question, Carol's pride and joy were her 18 grandchildren. Family gatherings were full of fun, laughter and lots of delicious food. She loved Christmas and worked Christmas magic, and she could make adult Easter egg hunts very competitive with her golden egg. Her cinnamon rolls and chocolate pie were family favorites, her personal favorites were dark chocolate candy or Rum Cake. She would share the cake, and was happy to have most of it left when the holiday was over.
Carol was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Posey, her parents Charles and Calel Wheeler, her brother Charles A. Wheeler, III, her sister-in-law Bobbie Posey Miller, and her son-in-law James Michael Osborn.
