ASHEBORO — Ruth “Carol” Farlow Huffman, 88, of Asheboro, passed away peacefully on Monday, Sept. 4, 2023, at her home.

Carol was born in Randolph County, NC, on May 10, 1935, the daughter of the late Dallas Colon Farlow and Ethel Mae Cox Farlow. 

After years of working for Dr. Van Chamberlain, she became the Executive Director for the Randleman Housing Authority where she worked until retirement. 

Carol was a kind, caring Godly woman who loved providing for people in need whether it was buying Christmas presents for families or providing a home cooked meal.  Her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were her pride and joy. She loved to cook, especially during the holidays.  She always loved Christmas and loved giving gifts and hiding money in odd places for you to find.

Carol was an avid Duke Blue Devils fan. She loved fishing and the beach where she and Dean spent most of their retirement years before moving back to Asheboro. In the early morning hours, you would always find her reading her Bible and praying for hours.

In addition to her parents, Carol was preceded in death by her brothers, Richard Farlow, Freddie Farlow, Norman Farlow and sister Emma Hall.

She is survived by her husband of 70 years, Ronald Dean Huffman, son Michael Huffman (Yvette) of Asheboro, NC; daughter, Candace Seabolt (Greg) of Denton, NC; grandchildren, Paige Martin (Jason), Tyler Huffman (Jameykay), Hunter Seabolt (Sammie), Jordan Singley (Colby); great grandchildren, Noah Martin, Jude Martin, David Seabolt, Bo Singley, Scout Seabolt, Walker Singley, and a baby Seabolt expected in November, 2023; her daughter-in-law, Lisa Huffman; and many nieces and nephews whom she loved. 

The family will receive friends on Sunday, Sept. 10, 2023, from 3-5 p.m. at Foster Street Wesleyan Church, 214 Foster St., Asheboro.

The family wishes to thank caregivers Stephanie, Kim and Becky for their support over the past several months. They also want to thank all the special people at Hospice of the Piedmont/Hospice of Randolph from their Medical Director to all employees for their excellent care to both Carol and our family.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to Hospice of Randolph, 416 Vision Dr., Asheboro, NC 27203.
