Carolyn R. Kniceley Sprigg
, 67, of Flatwoods went to be with the Lord on Feb. 25, 2011, while at home.
She was born Aug. 18, 1943, and was the daughter of the late Bland and Goldie Reip. She was also preceded in death by her daughter, Anita Kniceley; and her husbands, Phillip D. Kniceley Sr. and Robert M. Sprigg.
Surviving are her three children, Denver (Kelly) Kniceley of Sutton, Crystal (Jim) Gillespie of Flatwoods and Charity (Brent) Woods of Strange Creek; and six grandchildren, Phillip and Stephanie Kniceley, Grace Gillespie and Braylee, Adi and Aven Woods.
She was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. She retired from the Braxton County school system in 1999, after being a high school English teacher. She was an active member of Sutton Baptist Church and served on the Flatwoods Town Council. She enjoyed traveling, camping, reading, photography and spending time with her family. She was full of life and, no matter what situation came her way, you would always see her with a smile. She will always be known as a woman of strength, love and life, and will be missed tremendously by those left behind.
Her life will be celebrated with visitation from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday, Feb. 28, at Stockert-Sizemore Funeral Home, Flatwoods, and with a service at 11 a.m. Tuesday at Sutton Baptist Church. Burial will follow in the P.D. Kniceley family cemetery, on Corley/Caress Road.
