St. Timothy’s School will be forever grateful for the life and legacy of Carolyn Hale. We offer our condolences to her family on her passing on March 3.
In 1958, Carolyn and her husband, Fr. George Hale, founded St. Timothy’s School. She taught kindergarten for 18 years before transitioning to the Director of Admissions in 1978. Carolyn retired in 1993, but still remained a steadfast supporter of St. Timothy’s School.
When the school celebrated its 45th anniversary in 2003, Carolyn and Fr. Hale were honored and awarded the Order of the Long Leaf Pine by the Governor of NC, given for extraordinary service to the state of North Carolina. During the Founders’ Day 60th Anniversary Celebration, Carolyn entertained the crowd with stories about the founding and early days at St. Timothy’s.
Carolyn Hale will be put to rest during a private ceremony at St. Timothy’s Church. The family invites you to remember Carolyn with them through her favorite hymns: “I Sing a Song of the Saints of God” (which we usually sing every week at Chapel), “My Faith Looks Up to Thee” and “The Church's One Foundation.” You can read her full obituary here.
We are extremely thankful to Carolyn and Fr. Hale for their vision and lifelong commitment to St. Timothy’s School.
