1929 - 2015 On Saturday, December 19, 2015, five days shy of her 86th birthday, Carol Black DuBois entered into the heavenly Kingdom. There she will be reunited with her precious parents, R. Clyde and Eunice Black and her loving sister, Barbara Black. Carol was a resident of Skidmore for the past 26 years, becoming a much loved icon of this close knit South Texas town, with family roots dating back four generations. She was an active member of the First Baptist Church Skidmore, president of the Historical Skidmore Museum, a member of the Bee County Historical Society, and a patron of the Beeville Art Gallery. A native of Beaumont, Texas and a graduate of Baylor University. Carol had been active on the Junior League of Beaumont and the First Methodist Church of Beaumont, while staying involved with the activities of her children.

Life took her from Beaumont to Fort Worth, Houston, Anchorage, Alaska, Little River, Texas, San Antonio and finally to Skidmore. Along the way her address book continued to grow. Many mailboxes will be short a Christmas card this year. Left behind to cherish her loving memory are her son, Douglas E.
