Dorothy (Dottie) Nell Carroll

January 13, 1937 — November 12, 2023


Dorothy (Dottie) Nell Carroll, born on January 13, 1937, in Anderson County, Texas, gracefully ascended to heaven from Tomball, Texas on November 12, 2023. Dottie was a cherished daughter, a loving mother, a doting aunt, a proud grandmother, a joyous great-grandmother, and soon-to-be great-great-grandmother. Her departure leaves a void in the hearts of all who were fortunate enough to know her. 

Dottie had a zest for life that was truly contagious. She found joy in the simple pleasures, and her warm spirit touched the lives of those around her. A devoted reader, Dottie could often be found immersed in the pages of her favorite murder mystery books, finding solace and inspiration in written adventures. She also took great comfort in reading the Bible and Dr. David Jeremiah. 

Her legendary sweet tooth brought sweetness to every moment, especially in her adoration for Everything Bundt Cakes. Her love for sweets mirrored her sweet disposition, and she shared this joy with her family, creating lasting memories around the kitchen table. 

Dottie had a passion for solitaire at times. Many a quiet afternoon was spent in friendly competition on the iPad as she skillfully played her favorite game, demonstrating a strategic mind that carried over into all aspects of her life. 

In her younger years, Dottie lit up dance floors with her infectious energy and love for movement. Her feet seemed to have a mind of their own as she effortlessly glided to the rhythm of the music. Conway Twitty held a special place in her heart, and the melodies of his music were the soundtrack to many cherished moments. 

Dottie, as she was known by friends and family, had a fierce determination and fighting spirit. She overcame many health obstacles with grace and the belief that God would call her home when he was ready. Dottie met the love of her life when she met David Carroll. They spent many years traveling with his company and had the opportunity to live in places like Jakarta, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. In Malaysia, they met Nikki Lim Wang and sponsored her so that she could come to the United States.  

Dottie's life was a symphony of love and joy, and her memory will forever echo in the hearts of those who were fortunate to share in her journey. As she joins her loved ones in the embrace of heaven, may God bless her soul and grant her eternal peace. May the reunion with those who have gone before her bring comfort to those left behind, knowing that her spirit lives on in the cherished memories and the love she so generously shared. 

She is preceded in death by her parents and siblings, and her loving husband, James David Carroll, precious grandson, Alex Muniz, and stepdaughter, Gwen. She is survived by sons Randy Rodgers, James Carroll, daughters Joyce Muniz and husband, Henry, Linda Mills and Peggy Reyes . Grandchildren: Angela Bayer and husband, Trey, Shannon Teel-Welsh, Kayla Rene' Mills, Michael Muniz, Rachel and Jeffrey Rodgers. Great-grandchildren: Hunter Teel, Zane Welsh, Mason Fowler, Hamza Dar, Aisha Dar, Luke Bayer, and Isa Dar. Nieces & Nephews: Kelly King, Paula Allen and husband, Greg, Rhonda Wessling, Jason Rogers and wife, Julie, and April Rogers.
