Carole Warren-George

It is with great sadness that we, the family of Carole Garcia Warren-George announce her passing on Saturday, April 13th, 2013.  

A twin, and the second of four children, Carole Garcia was born at Bolt, W.Va. Her parents were the late Juvenenito “Joe” Garcia and Irene Fanning Garcia Gallaher. In addition to her parents, Carole’s sister, Lenore and her step father, Stoddart Gallaher have preceded her in death. She was the fond twin sister of Darrell Garcia and his wife, Dixie and Larry Garcia and his wife, Debbie and their families.

Always proud of “her roots” Carole’s early years were spent at Bolt. She was a graduate of Trap Hill High School. In later years she was instrumental in the Trap Hill High School Alumni Scholarship Fund, where she served as an honorary board of director.

In 1957, Carole would marry Daniel Warren. To this union would be born three children, Danette, Danny and Lynn. The family would make their home on Wright Road in Beckley. While Daniel was busy establishing the family’s business, Warrenizing Cleaners, Carole was a devoted wife and mother. The Warrens worshiped at the United Methodist Temple. Since 1982, Carole has made her home at Glade Springs. Her home will be remembered for its’ welcoming warmth and unsurpassed beauty.  

Always looking out for others, Carole was the first Welcome Wagon Hostess in Beckley. Her “vision” was to welcome newcomers to Beckley so they would become an integral part of the Beckley community. A strong belief in giving back, she held memberships in the Woman’s Club of Beckley, was a past director of the Junior Womens Club, past president of the Beckley Community Concert Association, the Hospice Board of Southern West Virginia, and the Beckley YMCA Building Fund. Carole Warren-George was not just a “joiner” she was a “doer.” She believed in her volunteerism and wanted to make Beckley and Raleigh County a better place to live.

At the end of the day, it will be Carole’s unfaltering faith that we will remember best. From her early days of worship at the United Methodist Temple to the test of her final battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Carole stayed strong in her faith. She served for decades in the Beckley Christian Women’s Club, acting as state chair person, was an area representative for Stonecraft Ministeries and until recently participated in Bible studies in her own home.

Carole’s blessings and challenges would be great along the way. In 1994, Daniel Warren died following an untimely illness of cancer. Carole stepped up to the plate and took over the family business which she has successfully ran for nearly 20 years. In 2000, Carole would find happiness again in her marriage to Larry George and embrace the Orthodox faith. She became a devoted member of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church. Larry’s daughters, Beverly Mamone and Patricia Lynn Nasby and their families would become a part of hers. Tragically, Lynn would die shortly in the first months of their marriage. Larry has often said, “Carole saved my life during those difficult days with her compassion and understanding.” In the late 2000’s Carole was diagnosed with ALS (Louis Gehrig’s disease). Throughout her illness, she has exhibited great courage and always, compassion for others who were going through troubling times. On October 10, 2011, Carole’s youngest, daughter, Carole Lynn, was tragically killed in an automobile accident, and yet Carole kept her faith. Brave, kind, compassionate to the end… “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”

Family was everything to Carole. In addition to her brothers, she leaves her beloved husband, Larry; she was the devoted mother to her surviving children, daughter, Danette Slipkovich of Margate, FL; and son, Danny Warren and his wife, Shelia of Beckley; the dear grandmother to Daniel Adam Slipkovich; Larry’s family, his surviving daughter, Beverly Mamone and her children,Tony Culicerto and his wife, Angie and their children, Alex and Evan, Talia Pollack and her husband, Spencer; Lynn’s children, Casey and Courtney Nasby; her sister-in-law, Ila Warren and her family; former classmates, her employees at Warrenizing, her caregivers, and a host of friends.

On Friday, April 19th, at 11 a.m., Carole’s life will be remembered with a service at St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, 211 South Heber Street, The Very Rev. Fr. Samuel Haddad will be officiating. Carole will be laid to rest in the Sunset Memorial Park Mausoleum. The family will receive friends at the Melton Mortuary Chapel at 1200 Harper Road, Thursday evening from 6 to 9 p.m. The Trisagon Prayer Service will be held at 8 p.m. at the mortuary.

The honor of carrying Carole has been given to Casey Nasby, Randy Garcia, Jose Garcia, Joe Garcia, Dan Ritter, Greg Foster, and Dan Slipkovich.

The family suggests that donations of sympathy can be made to: the United Methodist Temple, 201 Templeview Drive, Beckley, WV 25801, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, 211 South Heber St., Beckley, WV 25801, or the Trap Hill Alumni Scholarship Fund, PO Box 209, Harper, WV 25851
