Carole McMahan Obituary

 Janice Carole Bryan McMahan, Carole as she was fondly known by family and friends, was born on February 6, 1945, to the late Leon and Verda Sartain Bryan, in Hillsboro, TN. She was a long-time member of the Hillsboro Church of Christ and worked as a training administrator at AEDC until her retirement. Carole enjoyed gardening, yard work, flowers, bird watching, but her greatest joy came from babysitting her beloved grandchildren.

In addition to her parents, Carole is preceded in death by her siblings, Bob Bryan, Edwin “Eddie” Bryan, Dorothy Winton, Charlotte Hartman, and Ann DeBerry; in laws, Granville McMahan and Bob DeBerry. She is survived by her loving children, Eric McMahan and his wife, Callie, and Yvette Parsley and her husband, Paul. Carole was Grammy to her grandchildren, Caroline and Max Parsley, and Edith and Walter McMahan. Also surviving are her brother, Wayne Bryan (Pat), sisters, Violet McMahan, Sandra Simmons, Sylvia Wheeler (Jim), Sharon Elam (Mervin); sister-in-law, Sarah Bryan; many extended family members, and a host of friends. The family would like to acknowledge the loving care given to Carole by Sandra Lyle, Mallory Cox, and Jaslynn Gunter.
