Carol Eliason Obituary

Carol S. Eliason, 84, passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side on Thursday November 9, 2023 at her home in Surfside Beach, South Carolina. She was born on June 5, 1939 in Rockingham, North Carolina to the late Jesse & Nannie Tilton Saunders.

Along with her parents, Carol is reunited in passing with her beloved husband, Donald Lee Eliason- who left us in November of 2019; their son, Stephen Kerry Eliason; her sister, Joyce Speight; & brother, Larry Saunders.

Carol was an active woman with a heart of gold. She enjoyed long walks around the neighborhood with her friends and neighbors and traveling. Carole also enjoyed shopping, working in the yard, and cooking. Above all else, Carol loved her family with her whole heart. She truly relished time making memories and entertaining on the holidays. Carol will forever be remembered for her bright smile, quick wit and the love she had for her family.
