Carroll D. Long
Always with a smile on her face and love in her heart, she was devoted to family and friends.
Carroll D. Long died Thursday morning, September 8, 2005, at her home in Prospect after a lengthy illness at the age of 90.
She is survived by Ronald L. (Johnnie) Long, her devoted husband and closest friend, after being married for 70 years.  They were married in Florence, Kentucky on June 21, 1935.  From that marriage came three children:  Judi (Bob) Rodgers, Becky (Curt) Roller, and Stu (Sharry) Long, who survive her.  She was also blessed with nine grandchildren: Lori Rodgers, Lisa Hubler, Jan Dahlson, Jill Dahlson, Amy Burgess, Anna Gibson, Michael Roller, Julie Roller, and Malinda Long-Copland.  Carroll also boasted of twenty-one great-grandchildren.

Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers Edwin M. Dix and John N. Dix.
Carroll was a homemaker who loved to read and was an outstanding seamstress who made prom dresses for her daughters.  She was a member of the Prospect Methodist Church, the CCL, a past president of the Prospect Band Parents, and for forty years delighted in being a member of a bridge club.  Family photography and creating family albums was a favorite hobby, along with playing the organ for anyone who requested  she play their favorite songs.
