She was born on June 6, 1956, to Mr. and Mrs. Carlton Donahoe in Indianola. Carla married her best friend, Wayne Braswell, on May 20, 1978. She was a member of Porter Memorial Baptist Church in Lexington, Ky., and selflessly gave her time to individuals in need, various community ministries such as Lexington Rescue Mission, a couples’ Bible study group at Porter Memorial, patients battling cancer at the University of Kentucky Hospital, the elderly at Morning Pointe Nursing Home, and to spreading the Gospel of Christ throughout the world. A true example of a Proverbs 31 woman, she was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, who lived her life with grace, love, and gentleness.
She is survived by her husband, Glen Wayne Braswell of Lexington, Ky.; mother, Mrs. Carlton Donahoe of Roundaway; children, Jared Wayne Braswell of Oviedo, Fla., Cathryn Carla Braswell Potter (Matthew) of Arlington, Va., Stephen Glen Braswell (Rachel) of Walton, Ky., Lisa Carol Braswell of Lexington Ky.; grandchild, Eden Kay Braswell of Walton, Ky.; sister, Jill Donahoe Blount of Louisville, Ky., and a brother, Mike Donahoe of Milton, Fla.
A service was held on Sunday, December 29, 2013, at Roundaway Baptist Church in Roundaway.
