LeRoy, NY — Carol Joanne Verblaw Wahl Garrett, 84, of LeRoy went to be with Jesus on September 18, 2022, after a short illness. She was born February 18, 1938, in Rochester, NY, to John and Mildred (LeFevre) Verblaw. Carol is survived by her sons Steven Wahl of Hilton and Gary (Dawn) Wahl of LeRoy; ‘as admirable as a daughter’ Senghkawn (Jim) Clements of Cresson, TX; stepson Paul Garrett of Rochester; stepdaughter Patty (Jim) Smith of Cocoa, FL; a sister, Doris (Joe) Ziegler of Hilton; 8 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her father, mother, husband B. Dale Garrett, and sister Diane Rudd.

     Carol attended No. 37 School in the 19th Ward and graduated from West High School in 1956. After marrying in 1958 and graduating from RIT in 1959 with a degree in food management, she was blessed to be a homemaker and mother. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, racing sailboats in the Rochester Yacht Club, and studying her precious Bible. She was born again on March 21, 1972, and attended First Bible Baptist Church until she moved to Tennessee in 1988. Her life verse was Isaiah 26:3-4.


'Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:'


     She married Basil Dale Garrett on June 12, 1981, in Parma, NY. Dale and Carol lived in Tennessee and attended Shady Grove Baptist Church of Sevierville. Dale went to be with Jesus in 2014. After losing everything when a forest fire destroyed her neighborhood, she moved to LeRoy in October 2016, when she joined Old Paths Bible Baptist Church.
