Carol Hodges Yawn

December 17, 1946 — March 30, 2024


Carol Hodges Yawn, age 77, passed away Saturday, March 30, 2024 at St. Joseph’s/Candler Hospital in Savannah, Georgia. Carol was a life-long resident of Bulloch County and graduated from Statesboro High School in 1965. 

After graduation she followed the love of her life to the University of Georgia where both graduated before returning to Statesboro to marry in 1969. She enjoyed her time as a stay-at-home Mom while her children were young. Later she pursued her career as a counselor at Statesboro High School retiring in 2008.

Carol enjoyed serving her community as a past-president of the Statesboro Service League in 1984-85. She was an active member of Statesboro First United Methodist Church where she was involved in Sunday School and many Bible studies. Later she was instrumental in the establishment of Connection Church where she attended faithfully with her family.

Carol would consider her greatest accomplishment to be her three children, who she cherished beyond measure. Her true joy was her grandchildren who she loved unconditionally. She was adored by her whole family, who affectionately called her C.C.

Carol was preceded in death by her faithful husband, Bruce Yawn; her parents, Julian and Sara Reid Hodges; her husband’s parents, Snooky and Nancy Yawn.
