Carol Ewing Robey, 58

OWENSBORO, Ky. – Carol Ewing Robey, 58, passed away Tuesday July 8 2014. She was born October 11, 1954, in Florence, Ky. to the late C. M. “Hop” Ewing and Sue Houston Ewing.

She was a master gardener and enjoyed giving flowers from her garden to visitors of her Ohio County home. She was a great lover of animals and adopted many stray tick-infested dogs and cats that would show up at her home. She was a breast cancer survivor and inspired many with her courage.
