Cherishing Carol’s memory are those who survive; her husband of 56 years, Ed Burley of Bethesda; daughter, Stephanie (Brian) Harris of Bethesda; sons, Steven (Christine) Burley of Belmont, David (Lindsay) Burley of Bethesda; grandchildren, James Dowdle, Brandy Kellaway, Chad Burley, Rebecca Neitzelt, Daniel Burley, Clorisa Tanner, Brooklyn Burley, Carson Burley, Reagan Burley, Cody Harris, and Gage Harris; 11 great-grandchildren; sister, Donna (Marvin) Gray; and brother Dave (Sally) Francis all of Barnesville.

A lifetime member of Ebenezer Baptist Church, Carol was a devoted Christian and loved the Lord with all her heart.  Her faith was an inspiration to all who knew her and she shared it warmly and lovingly.  Her family was her pride and joy.  After church every Sunday, she always cooked dinner for her entire family.  She enjoyed everyone gathered around the table and the memories that were being made. She loved her flower garden and the beauty she would see, as each flower came into bloom.
