Sylvia A. (Watson) Carroll, age 81 of Decatur, passed away on December 16, 2020 in her home surrounded by her family.

Sylvia was an active member of Briarlake Baptist Church and volunteered with the ladies sewing group as well as the Home Bound Ministry.

She was married to her soulmate, Bobby, for 58 years and they rarely spent a night apart. A great joy in her life was watching her sons play sports. She cheered loud and never missed a game. She also loved to watch her grandchildren”s various sporting events, and if she couldn't physically attend, she always looked forward to the highlights.
