Carroll Long Owens

Surrounded by family that loved her, Carroll Long Owens, closed her eyes on Earth and opened them in Heaven on September 27, 2021. She was a remarkable woman loved by all who knew her, she never met a stranger, and left most with a hug.

Carroll was God’s faithful servant. She was a long time member at First Baptist Church of Whitsett. Carroll was always very sociable, friendly, and well loved by everyone. She loved playing golf with her husband Jim. Her interests also included making various crafts, country music, and gardening. She was a native of Greensboro and worked at Leon’s Beauty School and Leon’s at Friendly for 50 years.

She is survived by her husband of 23 years, Jim Owens; son, Eddie Cockman (Tina); brother, Charles Long; and sisters, Judy Taylor (Ron) and Margie Chrismon (Bruce).
