Carole Ann Yates

After a ten-year battle with cancer, Carole Ann Yates, 61, of Flat Rock has joined all the saints in the worship of her Lord and Savior. A devout Episcopalian, Carole founded the Order of St. Brigid, an organization through which she raised funds and worked for medical missions in rural Alabama.

Born in Auburn, AL, she was the daughter of the late John Hubert Liverman, Sr. and Camille Pomponio Liverman. She graduated from the University of Alabama at Birmingham with a BA in Graphic Design, and her career included working with Southern Living Magazine and the Asheville Citizen-Times.

She was a part-time resident of Henderson County for 20 years and the previous owner of Coffee News.

She is survived by her beloved husband of 18 years, Jimmy L. Yates; her daughters, Cathey Lee Givens of Edneyville and Amy Baldwin Cook and husband, David, of McCalla, AL; stepdaughter, Amy Yates Reynolds of Vance, AL; brother, John Hubert ìHughî Liverman, Jr., and sister, Gloria Liverman Hensley and husband, Rick, all of Hendersonville; and three grandchildren, Sydney Kate Reynolds, Cade Hunter Cook and Cloe Dallis Givens.

No local service is planned.

The Yates, Cook, Liverman and Hensley families would like to thank Dr. Medina and his staff, Pardee Hospital, especially 3 West, and the Elizabeth House for their expert and compassionate care of Carole throughout her illness.
