Obituary for Carole Mott

Carole Bailey Mott, age 71, of Americus, died Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, surrounded by her loving family. A native of Callahan, FL, she was born December 19, 1945 to the late James B. Bailey and Agnes B. Bailey. She grew up in Callahan, FL, graduated from Callahan High School in 1963, and then attended Florida State University. After two years of college, she married her high school sweetheart, Paul Freeman Mott on August 28, 1965 in Callahan. Upon his graduation from The University of Florida, they moved to Perry, FL, where they lived for fifteen happy years. They were active members of First Baptist Church of Perry, and served in many different capacities. While in Perry, Carole commuted to Tallahassee and finished her degree in Home Economics Education. After graduation, she served as the Taylor County Home Economics Extension Agent for nine years. In that job, she had the opportunity to impact the lives of many young people through the 4-H program.

In 1982, Carole, Paul, and their two daughters, Sheri and Lorna, moved to Americus, GA, and joined Central Baptist Church. In addition to being an active member of Central, Carole was a member of the Americus Junior Service League and that Hat’n’Hoe Garden Club where she spent countless hours serving others and sharing her many talents and skills. She was a wonderful wife, mother, mother-in-law and grandmother. Her four very special grandchildren lovingly called her GranGran.

Survivors include her husband of fifty-two years, Paul Freeman Mott of Americus; two daughters: Sheri Mott Ingram (Steve) of Acworth, and Lorna Mott Riley (Paul) of Monroe; one sister, Barbara Bailey Pace (Tommy) of Tallahassee, FL; four grandchildren: Joshua Payne Riley, Cooper Daniel Ingram, Ellie Grace Ingram, and Sarah Elaine Riley; one niece, Shanna Pace; and one nephew, Micah Pace.
