Obituary

Carol Ann Brock Ratcliff
Born November 7, 1940 in Memphis, TN to Carlisle and Effie Brock, Carol attended Memphis
schools and graduated from Whitehaven High School in 1958. She attended Union University at
Jackson, TN and then transferred to Mississippi College in Clinton, MS. After graduating with a
B.A. in May of 1962, she married Joe Hugh Ratcliff and moved to Carthage, MS, where she
served in the two half-time Baptist churches where Joe was pastor. They spent weekdays at
New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where she was bookkeeper for the Seminary. After
Joe graduated, they moved near Raymond, MS, and poured their lives into Salem Baptist
Church. Carol taught students in elementary grades in public and private schools in cities large
and small across Louisiana and Mississippi. Four children came into their home: Pam, Bryan,
Rebecca, and Brock.
Carol faithfully worked with the children of the churches where Joe was pastor, teaching them
the love of God in missions, in worship, and in her own life of service to everyone she knew.
Carol is survived by her husband, Joe H. Ratcliff; children: Pam Gray and her husband Thomas
of Apex, NC; Bryan Ratcliff of San Antonio, TX; Rebecca Ratcliff of St. Francisville, LA; and Brock
Ratcliff and his wife Lesley of Jackson, MS; one brother, C. Y. Brock Jr. and his wife Linda of
Chattanooga, TN. Grandchildren: Anna Caroline Gray, Carson Thomas Gray, Emily Catherine
Gray, Marlow Caroline Ratcliff, and Mary Alden Ratcliff.
Visitation will be held at First Baptist Church of St. Francisville on Tuesday, January 29, 2019 from
5-8 p.m. Visitation will continue on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at 9 a.m. until the memorial service at
10 a.m., led by Dr. Joel Williams and Rev. Kevin Cheatham. In lieu of flowers, memorial
donations may be made to the Missions Fund at FBC St. Francisville.

Dear Bros Joe,
As the “Episcopalian Beauchamps”, you have been a very special friend for many years! It was always so much fun to run into you and Ms Carol at local events and especially at Mag cafe! You were certainly a devoted husband- we are honored to call you friend and to fondly remember Ms Carol.
In Christ,
Kathy and David Beauchamp
