Carol Jean (Kelley) Amaimo was born on March 19, 1945, in Richmond, California to Milton and Lilly Corene Kelley. She grew up with 3 siblings, Patti (Kelley) Bernal, Ronnie Kelley, and her baby brother Randy Kelley. She was raised and attended school in the little town of Taft, Texas, where she met her high school sweetheart, Louis (Butch) Amaimo. They were married on April 7, 1964, and Carol was very proud to say that on this coming Anniversary they would have celebrated 60 years together. Their marriage was a great example of loyalty and endurance, especially through the tough times in life. They have two children, a daughter Lisa D'Ann, married to her husband Johnny Garza; and a son Jon David, married to his wife Tammy Amaimo.
Carol was a loving, feisty, strong willed and passionate person, which were all qualities that helped her in many areas of her life, especially when she started to study the bible and then get baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses on July 22, 1974. These qualities also helped her to battle cancer three different times in her life.
Carol enjoyed many things, she liked listening to good music, she loved to sing and had such a beautiful voice, she loved to dance and did so at every party she went to, she liked baking and made the best desserts ever, and everyone knows how much she loved her Rt 44 Dr. Pepper from Sonic! But most of all, she treasured her family, and never missed an opportunity to talk to you about her grandchildren, Quinton; Meghan, married to her husband Tim Stewart; Cassidy; Lane married to his wife Ali Amaimo; Shelby married to her husband Josh Herrera; and Summer married to her husband Dylan Nicholson. Each of them loved their Grandma very much, they especially enjoyed trying to get her to tell them which one of them was her favorite, but they quickly realized, when her great grandchildren came along, that they had no chance over Tyson and Avery Stewart, and Cooper Herrera. She also always considered her friends to be her family, and because of that, was a close friend to many, and even filled the role as a mother and grandmother to some. But her love extended far more than just her family and friends, Carol loved people, she never met a stranger, which enabled her to make friends everywhere she went. She enjoyed talking to as many as she could about Jehovah God and the hope that he promises us in the bible, in fact she taught several people the bible through home bible studies over the years and cherished each of her bible students. One of her favorite scriptures to show others was Revelation 21:4 - "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore."
Carol was a great example of strength and determination. On the day that she lost her final battle with cancer on December 27, 2023, she was surrounded by her close family, and fell asleep in death after one final prayer to the one that meant the most to her, Jehovah God. "Precious in the eyes of Jehovah is the death of his loyal ones." - Psalms 116:15
