Obituary for Carol Faye Clemons (Stewart)

Carol Faye “Ginney” Clemons, 68, of Franklin, went to her heavenly home on Thursday, January 20, 2022, after a short but hard-fought battle.

Born in Pennington Gap, VA, she was the only child of the late Chilton and Aileen Emmette Stewart. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Tommy Clemons, in 2009. Carol lived most of her life in Big Stone Gap, VA. She was a 1972 graduate of Powell Valley High School and a 1997 graduate of Mountain Empire Community College. Carol was a member of Cowee Baptist Church and loved to participate in various things at the church. She loved helping with Operation Christmas Child, reading her Bible, doing coloring apps on her phone, and watching Duke basketball, but the thing she loved most was spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Carol is survived by her daughter, Brianne Newsome and husband, Chris; two grandchildren, Cody Newsome (Leah) and Joey Newsome (Alexis); five great grandchildren, Leanna, Ariella, Sawyor, Daisy-Lee, and Haxley; and her very special cat, Greyson.
