CAROL LOUISE DOUGLAS LEWIS
Carol Louise Lewis, nee Douglas, was born in New
York City on Feb. 6, 1941 to William and Emelda
Douglas. At age fourteen Carol moved to the Virgin
Islands with her parents who were originally from St.
Immediately after graduation from Charlotte Amalie
High School in 1958 Carol was employed as a secretary
in the tax division of the Department of Finance. Later
she was promoted to Administrative Secretary to the
then Commissioner of Finance, Mr. Reuben Wheatley.
She was married to and subsequently divorced from
Albert Lewis of St. Thomas.
She returned to New York City in 1967 where she
held several responsible positions including, Executive
Secretary with USV Pharmaceutical Corp., a subsidiary
of Revlon, Inc.; Executive Secretary with the National
Urban League; Executive Secretary in the U.S. Virgin
Islands Information Center at Rockefeller Plaza; and
Administrative Assistant at the Digital Equipment, Inc.
where she was employed at the time of her death.
Even though Carol lived and worked in New York,
she considered the Virgin Islands her home. She was on
her way home to visit her Mother and son, Paul, and
also to participate in Saturday's Carnival Parade with
Lockhart's Gypsy Carnival Troupe of which she was a
long-time and beloved member.
Carol's fellow troupe members looked forward to her
annual visits with them. Her warmn and affectionate
personality endeared her to all who knew her. The
joy of her impish smile and twinkling eyes will be-a
cherished memory for all of us.
She loved life, her family and friends, and she was
loved in return.
"To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die.
