Pugh of Winston-Salem; sons and their spouse, Timothy (Karen) Goley of Asheboro, Scott (Amy) Goley of TX, Brett (Joy) Goley of Asheboro, Matt (Melissa) Goley of Clemmons; 7 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren; sister-in-law, Pat Goley Osborne (Jim) of N. Myrtle Beach, SC., several nieces and nephews, extended family and friends. Carol was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Doris Knight and her husband Carl. She attended the University of Alabama before meeting Jack in 1958. When Jack returned from an overseas tour in Istanbul,Turkey, they married in 1960. This small-town young lady did not realize how much traveling she was in for. In a period of 16 years with the Air Force, she and the kids went with Jack to 4 US and 3 overseas bases. During her time in England, she won the award for "Most Outstanding Family Services Coordinator" for the US Security Service Command worldwide. After Jack retired in 1976, Carol worked with Children's Home Society in Greensboro and Wilmington. She took up quilting and made over a hundred quilts for family and friends. Her family and her late beloved dog, Pudge, will dearly miss this talented loving woman. The Goley family wishes to express their gratitude to the great staff at Clemmons Village I and Mountain Valley Hospice for their tender supportive care of Mrs. Goley.
