Carolyn Campbell Hoffmann, 84, of Mooresville, passed away on October 28, 2015 with her loving family by her side. She was born in Summersville, West Virginia to the late Eugene L. and Edna G. Campbell.
She graduated from Nicholas County High School in 1949, then earned a B.A. at Duke University and a Master’s at UNCC. While at Duke, Carolyn married the love of her life, Rev. Theodore S. Hoffmann.

Her love of art and music was strongly represented in her teaching career and personal life, particularly with her involvement in her church choir.

She is survived by her daughter Lorie Lowell and her husband, Bill, of Mooresville, NC; son Brian of Little River, SC; granddaughters Chelsea Lowell of New York, NY and Alyssa Lowell of Raleigh, NC.
Her granddaughters will remember their Nana for her thoughtfulness, always taking care of them, her love of God and for never putting herself first. The family wishes to thank the nurses and staff at Abernethy Laurels, Newton, NC for their extraordinary love and care of Carolyn.
