Carol E. Sweet

July 26, 1945 — January 15, 2024

Carol E. Sweet, 78, of Clarksville, Indiana, passed away on Monday, January 15, 2024. Carol was a proud member of the First Church of The Nazarene and VFW Post #1693. She loved the Lord, her family and her country. Carol enjoyed long car rides with scenic views, being the planner of the family, the Butler Bulldogs, good movies as long as there were no "cuss words", and her dog Figaro.

Carol was born on July 26, 1945 in New Albany, Indiana to the late George and Orpha (House) Hoover. The Hoover family grew up on the west end of New Albany (the poor side of town) and she wore it as a badge of honor. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend at every moment of everyday. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her son, Jerry W. Sweet, Jr.; brother, Everett Hoover; and sister, Joy Chism.

Carol is survived by her loving husband, Jerry W. Sweet; daughter, Nancy Sweet (Mike) Cummings; grandson, Ty J. (Kayla) Elliott; granddaughter, Taylor J. Elliott; two sisters, Theresa Hoover and Lisa Kestler; and was also anticipating a bundle of joy, a great grandchild in August 2024.
