Carol was a native of Newport News but also lived in Eagle Springs, North Carolina. Her husband of 48 years, Richard Dean Johnson, preceded her in death and is buried in Eagle Springs.

Carol was born on August 31, 1942, in Newport News and was the daughter of the late Aaron Domas Brewer and Foy Deaton Brewer. She graduated from Newport News High School in 1960. She retired from Verizon with 30 years of service. She later worked for York County Schools and retired after five years of service.

Going Home

Music -
Antonín Dvořák's Symphony No. 9 (popularly known as the New World Symphony), 1893
(08 Sept 1841 – 01 May 1904)

 Lyrics added by Dvořák's pupil, William Arms Fisher


Going home, going home
I'm just going home
Quiet light, some still day
I'm just going home
It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
Work all done, care laid by
Going to fear no more
Mother's there expecting me
Father's waiting, too
Lots of folk gathered there
All the friends I knew
All the friends I knew
I'm going home
Nothing's lost, all's gain
No more fret nor pain
No more stumbling on the way
No more longing for the day
Going to roam no more
Morning star lights the way
Restless dream all done
Shadows gone, break of day
Real life begun
There's no break, there's no end
Just a living on
Wide awake with a smile
Going on and on
Going home, going home
I'm just going home
It's not far, just close by
Through an open door
I am going home
I'm just going home
Going home, going home
