Mrs. Mary Carolyn Vann Casper, affectionately known as Carolyn, peacefully passed away at ECU Health Roanoke Chowan Hospital on Wednesday, March 6, 2024.

Born in Bertie County, North Carolina on June 6, 1943, Carolyn dedicated her life to creating a warm and loving home as a devoted homemaker. She found joy in the simplicity of life, spending time among the vibrant colors of flowers and watching birds in their natural habitat. Her greatest source of happiness came from being married to the love of her life for an incredible 63 years. A faithful member of Ahoskie Church of God, Carolyn found solace and strength in her faith. Her nurturing spirit and caring presence will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Carolyn is preceded in death by her beloved mother, Mary Dilday Vann, father, Hugh Vann, sister, Betty Ruth Vann, and brothers Tommy, Billy, and J.H. Vann.

Left to cherish her memory is her devoted husband, Richard Casper, along with friends whose lives she touched with her kindness and grace.

The family will honor Carolyn’s life with a celebration of life service at a later date. For those wishing to express condolences, arrangements are being handled by Garrett-Sykes Funeral Service – Ahoskie Chapel. Online tributes can be posted at
