Carolyn Edie Bloomhuff, 67, of Brazoria was born on September 29, 1950 in Humble, Texas to John and Edith Davis. She went home to be with Lord on Thursday, March 1, 2018 at CHI St. Luke Health Brazosport in Lake Jackson, Texas.
Carol was truly a gifted and talented person that shared herself with others. She was confident, loving and caring to those around her. Her determination, drive and positive attitude was infectious. Carol loved her family with all her heart. If you called her for advice and help, she would drop and focus on your needs. You could feel her caring and strength.
Carol took up painting right out of high school and it gave her a great deal of satisfaction. She excelled in her painting. She always intended to continue her painting after she retired. Carol was also a wonderful gardener. She planted roses along her wooden fence and they took over the fence in her first home in Angleton. She was called “Aunt Kikki” by all her nieces and nephews. After her roses came out she was called “Mother
Goose” by her husband. He later called her “Goose” for the next 40 years. Later her grandchildren called her “Deego”. She loved to be called “Deego” after that.
Carol first real job was becoming a secretary to the Dean of the Engineering and Computer Science Department. She dove into her work and soon everyone at Texas A&M University saw her talent. She began showing her skills in leadership, organizing and communication. The Dean praised her by telling everyone he had the best secretary at the university.
Carol used her gifts and talents to help others all her life. Carol could help you with your computer or write a business letter for you anytime she was asked.
Carol’s business and professional life used all her skills in organizing, communications and business management. Carol worked for the Provost at the University of Houston as an executive secretary. The director soon learned that Carol could write any of the letters he needed. All he had to do was sign them and no revisions were needed.
Carol also took a position at a Radio Station in San Antonio. Carol had a table and chair in a bare office the first day. The owner needed her budget to set up the entire office. Carol worked many days around the clock to set up everything by opening day. Soon the station manager directed everyone to Carol’s office to take care of all their needs. He boasted to everyone that Carol handles all problems for him without any supervision. Carol shined in the hectic business atmosphere.
Carol’s last job was at Baylor College of Medicine. She was in charge of all grant proposals in the Flu and Virology Department. The Director considered Carol his right hand man. Carol prepared all the presentations for the Director of Flu. The director provided the CDC with these presentations.
We are all so blessed to have had Carol in our lives. Her perpetual positive can- do attitude was infectious to us all.
We will miss the love she gave us all. Thank you, O Lord for the life of Carolyn Edie Davis Bloomhuff.
