BELLVILLE — At every party there are two kinds of people — those who want to go home and those who don’t. Carol S. Lendon was the latter. She brought life to any party and put the social in social butterfly.

The social butterfly has metamorphosed and earned her beautiful wings as Carol passed from this life to her eternal home Thursday, Aug. 2, 2012. She was 71.

She was born Aug. 19, 1940, in Ft. Gay, W.Va., the daughter of Calvin C. and Cordellia (Blevins) Damron.

A wonderful wife and mother, Carol enjoyed cooking, canning and caring for her family.

A lifelong area resident, she was a member of Bellville Freewill Baptist Church.

Fun-loving and kind-hearted, Carol was always the life of the party, even bringing liveliness to her friends at the nursing home.

She is survived by her children, Timothy (Laurie) Damron of Delaware, Belinda Crawford and her fiancé David Pratt of Crestline, and Sondra (Mike) Egler of Columbus; six grandchildren, Lindsay Damron, Kelsey Damron, Kylee Arter, Kendra Miller, Ryan (Savanna) Quaintance and Erin (Jarod) Conley; two great-grandchildren, Chase Conley and Rilynn Quaintance; two sisters, Wanda Pratt of Mount Gilead and Norma Shrader of Bellville; her first husband, Arley Crawford of Galion; and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her second husband, Tom Lendon; and five siblings, Garland Damron, Gladys Wilson, Margaret Parsons, Delphia Damron, Calvin Damron Jr. and Ruby Fagert.

Friends may call Monday, Aug. 6, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the Bellville Snyder Funeral Home where the funeral service will be held at 3 p.m. Pastor Bruce Copley will officiate and burial will follow in Zion Four Corners Cemetery.
