    From The News & Observer:

    Carolyn Dale Weaver Sheets, 64, died peacefully at her home on Friday, April 24, 2009. She was an inspiration of strength and courage during her journey with cancer. Born on August 25, 1944, she was the daughter of the late John Raymond Weaver and Mary Frances Wilkerson Weaver of Hillsborough. She was a graduate of Louisburg College and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Carolyn was a longtime resident of Raleigh and taught third grade at Helen Y. Stough Elementary School in Raleigh for nearly 30 years. Her greatest loves were spending treasured times with her family and friends, creating memories with her grandchildren, nurturing plants and flowers, supporting Carolina basketball, and enjoying the simplicity of rural life. She was an active member of Highland United Methodist Church, Highland?s Circle 7 and Seekers Class, and the Delta Kappa Gamma Society of Educators. Over the years, she also devoted her energetic spirit to numerous organizations, including Loaves and Fishes, the Highland Service Project, and Raleigh?s District D Neighborhood Alliance. Carolyn?s love of Carolina men?s and women?s basketball spanned decades. From sneaking into the dining room as a teenager to listen to Larry Brown and York Larese on the radio in 1960, to rooting for Tyler Hansbrough and Ty Lawson in the championship game just weeks ago, she inspired multiple generations of Tar Heel fans within her family. Carolyn didn?t just have a ?green thumb? ? she had a hand full of them. From her father and grandmother, she was taught the nuances of planting, gardening, climate, and soil. All her life, she grew things healthy, vibrant, and colorful ? to match her personality. During her time as a teacher, Carolyn inspired hundreds of lives with her dedication, sincerity, and tough love. To her, every child was a gift to be nurtured. She was predeceased by her parents, by her stepmother, Thelma Mitchell Weaver, and by her loving husband of 35 years, Benjamin Lanier Sheets. She is survived by her daughter, Donna Sheets Mayfield and her husband, Andy Mayfield of Trinity; son, David Lanier Sheets and his wife Christa Riker-Sheets of Holly Springs; four grandchildren, Stephen, Joshua, and Mollie Mayfield, and Katelyn Sheets. She is also survived by Joe and Debbie Sheets, brother-in-law and sister-in-law; niece, Jessy DiGiacomo and her husband Billy DiGiacomo, all of Apex. Carolyn?s family wishes to extend a special thank you to the many friends who provided help and comfort during her illness, to the truly amazing members of Highland?s Circle 7, and to the compassionate, dedicated staff members of Visiting Angels and Hospice of Wake County. There are truly angels among us. The family will receive visitors at Brown-Wynne Funeral Home, 300 St. Mary?s Street, Raleigh on Monday evening from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. A funeral service will be held at Highland United Methodist Church, 1901 Ridge Road, Raleigh on Tuesday at 11:00 am. Graveside service will follow at 3:30 pm at New Sharon United Methodist Church, 1601 New Sharon Church Road, Hillsborough. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice of Wake County, 1300 St. Mary?s Street, Raleigh, NC, 27605; to Highland United Methodist Church; or to the charity of one?s choice. Arrangements by Brown-Wynne Funeral Home, 300 St. Mary?s Street, Raleigh.
