Carole Sinclair

Carole Sinclair was born the “baby” of ten with her twin brother Franklin, on February 18, 1942 in Dillon, South Carolina to James Blanton “JB” and Mamie Lane. Her twin brother died of pneumonia in the “dog days” of summer six months later. Her mama was a cotton mill worker and housewife. Her daddy, a decorated World War II United States Navy veteran, was also a cotton mill worker and cotton farm overseer. Her family later moved “uptown” when her daddy went to work in the meat packing industry, while her mama continued to work at the cotton mill until retirement. Carole was educated in the public schools of Dillon County South Carolina, graduating in 1959. In 1957 a classmate introduced Carole to the future ”love of her life” and fellow South Carolinian, Samuel Aubrey Sinclair, known to all his friends and family as “Dick”. Dick, raised by his older sister due to his mother having to work multiple jobs after his father died, was also the “baby” of his family. Fatherless at the age of twelve, Dick became a leader at an early age and developed a strong work ethic that remained with him thru out life. He left school in the eleventh grade for work. Dick and Carole played “hookie” from a church function to go on their first date! After a year and a half courtship they were married on February 6, 1960 in Dillon, South Carolina by the Justice of the Peace. Starting a family in that same year with the birth of their first child Richard, they went on to have three more children; Beverly, Andrew, and Robert. They moved several times while raising their family, moving from Dillon, South Carolina to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida in 1965, then back to South Carolina in 1967, then to Tillmans Corner, Alabama in 1969. The reason for the moving was for Dick to continue working as a long haul truck driver. After driving for Gulf City Shrimp Company based out of Pascagoula, Mississippi for seventeen years, his love for trucking was so intense that when they went out of business, Dick bought three of his own trucks! Not one to sit idly by, Dick after retiring in 1990 returned to the work force as an entrepreneur, partnering with another Alabama family in the field of heavy equipment doing construction site work and demolition. So successful was Dick’s efforts as a provider for his family, that Carole has only worked one job outside the home for two years since 1960. After fifty three years of marriage and a dozen years of health problems that Dick successfully managed with great poise by God’s grace, Carole lost her beloved Dick from this life on a cold, south Alabama day just nine days after their fifty third wedding anniversary. His beautiful smile and unique energy still resonates in the hearts and minds of many today in southwest Alabama and at The Baptist Chapel! Carole attended Second Baptist Church with her mama and siblings as a child in Dillon, South Carolina. In her personal testimony she tells of a time when she went thru the motions of being saved and baptized as a young child. After she got married she got away from any faithful service at a local church. In the early 1990’s she was invited to attend services at The Baptist Chapel and she started attending with her family. Shortly thereafter her daughter and husband made professions of faith, offering themselves as candidates for baptism. With her husband and daughter scheduled for baptism, she too offers herself as a candidate for baptism and all were baptized on February 12, 1995. Several months later, twenty days before Christmas, while sitting home alone with Holy Spirit convicting her thru a powerful Spirit filled sermon her pastor had preached on the subject of living a lie as a lost church member the Sunday before, Carole came to the full realization that she too was lost and had never sincerely ask Jesus to save her and ask Jesus to come into her heart! She was scripturally baptized under the ministry of her longtime pastor Bro. Dell Murphy by the authority of The Baptist Chapel on April 4, 1996. Carole can be found faithfully serving her Savior in many capacities at The Baptist Chapel each time the doors are open. She is a regular in the choir and vacation bible school. Since becoming a member she has served as; a voice in the choir, a voice in a ladies quartet, a VBS worker, a nursery worker, a church housekeeper, a Ladies Auxiliary officer, and a Sunday School teacher. She is currently the secretary/treasurer of The Baptist Chapel Ladies Auxiliary. She was also instrumental in being one of four ladies that installed all of the tongue and groove pine ceiling during the new construction of The Baptist Chapel sanctuary in 1998. The love that Carole has for the Lord and His work can be seen in her smiling face each week at The Baptist Chapel and in the lives of many others that she assist, tends to, and so sacrificially serves in Christ. She enjoys spending time with her five grandchildren, family, and church family. She also occupies her time with Bible study, church activities, shopping, movies, social media, “computering”, yard work (not so much an enjoyment, but a have to), and attempting to achieve her mama’s green thumb. To befriend Sis. Carole Sinclair is to plow a friendship that will always be rewarding and endearing!
