With the sun peaking through the clouds and a brilliant blue sky beyond, Carol L. (Lockard – Whitmire) Clayton, 75 of Berwick, settled on her raft, the smell of suntan lotion and sea salt in the air, she closed her eyes and drifted off, Wednesday afternoon October 18, 2023. Nothing but a cool ocean breeze, the call of seagulls, and the warmth of the sun on her face to escort her home.

Carol attended Berwick High School. She worked at Briar Creek Manufacturing, a division of Lady Esther, as a lace inspector. She later worked for Wise Food Inc., where she was a Route Accounting Clerk .
