Carol Ann Baldridge Dover came into this first life on November 29, 1948. She was born at her family home on Bear Bluff Trail near Ravenden, Arkansas to her proud parents, Fred and Florene Baldridge. Carol was the baby of three children, and her older siblings, Wanda Baldridge Mathews and Freddie Lavell Baldridge, doted on her throughout her lifetime. Carol married John Dover, the love of her life, on December 30, 1964. Together they grew a family that included three children: Timothy, Jeffrey, and Sheila. They enjoyed a quiet life at their home on Martin Creek. Carol was a dedicated wife and homemaker. Taking care of her family was her whole heart. Many family memories were made during family gatherings on the hillside to fellowship and sing. She came from a family rich in musical talent. Carol loved to play the piano and sing. It was common to hear her singing with her sister and extended family. After the death of her beloved John, Carol spent her time doting on grandchildren and enjoying her hillside. This precious mother spent the last years of her life in an earthly body that could not last. She recently spoke often of God carrying her through these years without her John and her desire to rest in Heaven with him. She moved on to her next life in the early morning hours of December 14, 2021. Her body has now been made whole and complete in Jesus. Carol was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and her brother. Left here to celebrate her life are her sister, Wanda; her children, Timothy Dover and wife Melissa, Jeffrey Dover, Sheila Dover Booth and husband Tony; her six grandchildren: Allen Dover, Kara Dover Whited, Natosha Dover Bullock, Jeff Dover, Taylor Booth Mead, and Archer Booth. She also blessed 15 great-grandchildren with memories of their Grandma Carol. Services will be Wednesday, December 22 with visitation of family and friends beginning at 1 p.m. followed by the Celebration of Life at 2 p.m. all in New Song Baptist Church in Williford, Arkansas. Burial will be in Perry Cemetery. Pallbearers include Tony Booth, Archer Booth, Uriah Mead, Tony Whited, Braden Graddy, and Jackie Booth.
