Carole Bass

Carole Frances Bass, 89, of New Bern, N.C., died Wednesday, April 3, 2013, in Fredericksburg.

A Marine Corps veteran of World War II, she and her late husband, John Conwell Bass, had lived in New Bern for the past 25 years.

She loved art, music, playing the piano, attending church, sharing fellowship with her many friends and doing water aerobics at Courts Plus. After gallantly recovering from two hip replacements, she succumbed to her battle with bladder cancer.

She is survived by their children, Terry Bass Prickett, John Douglas Bass and Gary Edward Bass; four grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, April 15, at First Presbyterian Church of New Bern, 400 New St., New Bern, N.C. 28560, where a reception will follow. Burial will be private.

Please make any memorial contributions to the church.
