Obituary for Carol Cunningham McElmurray

Carol Cunningham McElmurray, 77, of Dahlonega, GA passed away June 29, 2018. Carol was born on March 12, 1941 in Miami, FL to the late Emmett and Frances Cunningham.
She is survived by her son, Rev. Chris (Melisa) McElmurray; grandchildren, Abigail, Rachel, and Finley McElmurray; brother, Van (Judy) Cunningham; sister, Kelly Roberson; step-mother, Rosemarie Cunningham; step-children, Jayne Scott, Ben Swain McElmurray, III, and Joe McElmurray.

Carol grew up in Smyrna, where she was a cheerleader for Campbell High School (Class of ’59). As a beauty queen, she was the 1958 Miss Cobb County Fair, Georgia Tech Navy Ball Queen, and the “Sweetheart of Sigma Chi.” Carol served as an administrative assistant for various firms, retiring in 2003 after almost three decades at Modern Welding Co. in Augusta. She was saved as a result of watching a televised Billy Graham Crusade, after which she served as a faithful member of West Augusta Baptist Church, The Vine Church, and Dahlonega Baptist Church. She will be most remembered for her confident evangelism, steady encouragement, and boundless enthusiasm – as a cheerleader for God and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

A funeral service will be held Tuesday, July 3, 2018 at 1:00 PM at the Chapel of Mowell Funeral Home, Fayetteville. The family will receive friends from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM prior to service. Everyone is invited to a time of food and fellowship after the service at the First Baptist Church of Haralson (224 Magnolia Street, Haralson, GA).

Carol will be laid to rest in a private family ceremony at Greenwood Cemetery, Atlanta. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to either the Youth Ministry of First Baptist Church of Haralson (PO Box 292, Haralson, GA 30229) or
