Billie Strickland

December 15, 1934 — April 4, 2022

Billie Gean Carroll Strickland, 87, passed away on April 4, 2022 in Oliver Springs, TN.  She was born on December 15, 1934 to Loyd and Eller Hunter.

Billie Gean is survived by her children;  Loyd Carroll of Oliver Springs, TN;  Jan Long (husband Owen) of Oliver Springs, TN;  Judy Hill (husband Jack) of Clinton, TN;  John Carroll (wife Sally) of Indianapolis, IN;  Ralph Carroll (wife Gladys) of Brandywine, MD;  Lilly Kesteven (husband Richard) of Louisville, KY;  and Colleen Merritt of Beltsville, MD.  She is blessed with several grandchildren, great grandchildren, long time family friends and a wonderful church family at Cove Road Primitive Baptist Church.

Billie Gean was preceded in death by husbands, Milford Carroll and Lewis Strickland; daughter, Eller Hooper; son, Perry Carroll; son, Steve Carroll; son, Lonnie Carroll; brother, Roy Hunter; and grandson, Stevie Hooper.

With unconditional love, graceful understanding and powerful prayers she was a beautiful example of a faith-filled Christian woman.  She consistently reflected the fruit of the Spirit; love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  One of her greatest joys was singing praises to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We all love her very much and will miss her bright, beautiful Spirit…until we meet again.

We will honor her life at a graveside service on April 7th, 2022 at 2:00 PM at Anderson Memorial Gardens.  Pastors Gary Massengill and Thomas Vananda will be officiating.
