Carolyn Kile Dean, a longtime resident of Longview, Texas passed away unexpectedly at her home on Friday, September 18th. She was born April 3rd,1952 in Alexandria, Louisiana to Howard and Vivian Kile and was the pride of her big brother, Bobby. She was previously married to Roland Dean of Longview, Texas who remained a life-long friend. Carolyn was an alumnus of Spring Hill High School and Kilgore College, where she was a Kilgore Rangerette. She was an employee of Gas Solutions in Longview and previously spent many years at East Texas Professional Credit Union. She was an active member of Spring Hill First Baptist Church where she played the organ and was very proud of her work on their scholarship drive. A huge sports fan, she was a supporter of the Dallas Cowboys and the San Antonio Spurs. A perfect day for her would be playing organ at the church in the morning, fried chicken for lunch and watching her Dallas Cowboys play. She is survived by her nephew, Jared Kile and his wife Irene of Round Rock, Texas and their children Briana Carroll and Morgan Kile whom she loved very much, as well as aunts, an uncle and many cousins whom she was very close to. She is also survived by her long-time sister-in-law, Dee Phipps and her husband Bill of Lago Vista, Texas. She was predeceased by both her parents and her brother. A Life Celebration will be held at Spring Hill First Baptist Church on Gilmer Road on Saturday, October 10th at 2PM. For those unable to attend in person, the event will be live-streamed. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to The American Cancer Society. She beat it, and with your help others can as well.
