Born Carol Delois Murphy on August 7, 1945, in Pollocksville, North Carolina, Carol was the daughter of the late Killis Allen Murphy, Jr. and the late Minnie Bell Murphy. Carol was educated in the public schools of Jones County and graduated from Jones High School in 1963. Carol earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Education in 1967 from the North Carolina College at Durham, now North Carolina Central University. 

Carol married the late Johnny Edward Hill on July 27, 1968. John Edward and Carol were blessed with two children, William Allen, a laboratory animal veterinarian, and Joy Johnell, an information technology executive. Carol delighted in the successes of her children, but her life’s greatest joy was her grandson Damien Malone, Jr.  

For thirty years, Carol was a dedicated and beloved typing and business education teacher in the Craven County School System serving J. T. Barber High School, J. T. Barber Junior High School and New Bern High School.

Carol was initiated into the Theta Beta Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated in 1975. A life member of the sorority, Carol served as financial secretary and on various chapter committees.

Carol was a faithful member of the Free Will Chapel Free Will Baptist Church. She served for over twenty years as church recording secretary and for five additional years as financial secretary. In May 2012, Carol was honored as Free Will Chapel Woman of the Year.

A proud twenty-year breast cancer survivor, Carol was a staunch supporter of Jones County Relay for Life. Carol was a member of the Jones County Martin Luther King Birthday Observance Committee and the North Carolina Retired School Personnel Association.

Carol’s legacy of class, grace, and faith will forever be carried by her son, William Allen Hill; her daughter Joy Johnell Hill Malone; her son-in-law, Damien Malone, Sr.; and grandson, Damien Malone, Jr., who affectionally called her “Nana”. Additional survivors include, her sisters, Mateldia and Deborah Murphy; a brother, Shelton Murphy; a brother-in law, William Lee Hill; four sisters-in-law, Tera Murphy, Deborah Boone, and Josephine and Kathy Hill; two aunts, Charity and Edna Murphy; two uncles, Leamon Murphy and Vincent Franks, Sr.; six nieces, Ericka Boone, Georgette McCray, Monica Murphy, and Gloria, Benita, and Linda Faye Hill; three nephews, Jeremy Murphy, David Boone, Jr., and Gregory Hill; a special cousin, Janice Murrell; a beloved friend, Alice Strayhorn; and a host of other cousins and friends.

    Joy, Condolences to you and your family. Carol and I had a love for shoes. Each time we saw each other, we’d have to let each other know of our special purchases. However, her she was the “Queen of the Shoes.” I will definitely miss her...a genuine person, graceful and true.
