Carol Jean Roush

January 03, 1963 ~ December 24, 2022

Carol Jean Roush, 59, of West Palm Beach, FL, formerly of Millwood, WV, passed away peacefully at her home following a brief illness. She was born the daughter of Edwin “Pete” Roush and the late Nina Harmon Roush, also of Millwood. In addition to her mother, Carol was preceded in death by her sister, Beverly Gerlach; maternal grandparents, Clara Harmon DeLong and Harold Harmon; and paternal grandparents, Goldie and Elmer Roush. She is survived by her father Pete, as well as her sister Peggy Roush of Titusville, FL; nephews Bruce Smith of Parkersburg, WV, and Earl Gerlach of Mt. Alto, WV; and a niece, Grace Gerlach, of Ravenswood, WV. She is also survived by many great-nieces and nephews, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Carol was employed at Valley National Bank and had worked in the financial services industry for more than 30 years. She was well known for her wonderful sense of humor and had many, many friends who will miss her dearly. Carol was also a devoted animal lover and cared for many beloved “fur babies” during her lifetime. To honor Carol’s memory, please consider making a donation to your local animal shelter in her name. Arrangements are being handled by Edgley Cremation Services. Condolences may be offered through the funeral home’s website at edgleycremationservices.com. A celebration of life for Carol will be held at a later date.

I am saddened by this and totally shocked. I have known Carol for over 30 years and even though we hadn’t seen each other in awhile I wish that I had called her more.. I didn’t even know she was having health problems .

Carol, you have left us way too soon. I will always remember you for your humor, thoughtfulness and concern for those around you. I still smile when I think of the fun you had with the Mystery Date game board and planning out ‘Thanksmas’ with your family. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Peggy, Pete, Grace and the rest of Carol’s family and friends, may you be comforted by knowing how special and respected CaroI was to all of her “work family” at Valley. I have had the pleasure of knowing Carol since 2010 when she began her career at Valley Bank. Carol was incredibly positive, hardworking, loved to be kept busy and extremely versatile and willing to take on new responsibilities. While she preferred to be quiet, low key, and private she touched so many of us. She was a beloved member of the Valley family, and we will miss her. I will keep her and her wonderful family in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless

I am deeply saddened by the news of Carol’s passing. I worked with Carol for 17 years and I cherish the time we spent together, walking the parking garage and sharing stories. Carol loves her sisters so much and always spoke of them with love and caring for their well-being. I will miss our “Thai day/Friday” lunch dates!! Carol always made me smile and always had a funny joke to tell me. We laughed and cried together. I know that Carol would be deeply touched that she meant so much to so many people. I will miss you my dear friend. I will see you up there when we meet again.

Sharing in your sadness as you remember Carol. She was a dear co-worker and friend, and I had the privilege of working alongside her for many years. She holds a special place in my heart for being kind, caring, thoughtful and having a great sense of humor. We shared family stories and experiences; Carol loved her family so very much and she shared them with us through her stories. I’m thankful for the opportunity to have share some time with her recently, and we told each other how much we cared for one another. I will miss her on this side of heaven. I pray you are surrounded by much love and find comfort in God and in one another through this difficult time.
