Carol Malone Obituary
Carol Lynn Givens Malone was born March 7, 1958 to the late Albert Givens Sr. and Wilma Jean Haines. She was one of six children to be born to the couple. She knew at a very young age that she was God's daughter and happily accepted the Lord into her life. Family Christian Center in Munster, Indiana was her church home.

Jerome and Carol Malone had three beautiful children, Essence JerCar Malone, Austin Jerome Malone, and Alexander Arthell Daniel Malone. Carol was blessed to be a grandmother to Emerson Alexander Malone and future grandson Emmanuel Alexander Bridges.

Carol's passions in life were family, singing, early childhood education, and Jesus. She spent her life teaching, nurturing, and mentoring through her education, life experiences, and walk with Jesus Christ.

On June 3, 2019, the Lord confirmed her duty on this earth was complete.
