February 6, 1938 - December 29, 2020
Surrounded by her family, Carol Galloway Huff passed away peacefully on December 29, 2020. She was born February 6, 1938, in Afton, TX, to Robert Calvin Galloway and Barbara Liles Galloway. Carol graduated from Oak Grove (Stanley High School) Class of 1956. She earned a scholarship to Centenary College, but instead chose to marry the love of her life, Buford Lee Huff of Logansport, LA. They celebrated 64 happy years of marriage in November. Carol was a member of the North DeSoto Church of Christ where she was a lifelong Bible student. She shared her knowledge with others and led many to Christ. Her greatest legacy is her family. As a loving wife, tough love mother, and doting grandmother, Carol will be remembered for long nature walks in the woods and boisterous family Christmases. She was proud that her descendants could easily identify birds, flowers, and trees. Carol was a gifted seamstress, an avid gardener, a lover of crossword and jigsaw puzzles, and a devoted fan of Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune. She loved cooking for others and back porch visiting.
In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her brothers and sisters – Grace Waldon; RC Galloway, Jr.; Kate Parks; Elvin Galloway; Olin Galloway; Bonnie (Bud) Galloway; Willie Parker; Jim Galloway; Fern Golden Keeling; Doris Hill; Dottie McDaniels; Gyndel Galloway (infant); and Juanell Hughes.
