Carol Ann Boone

January 30, 1945 — February 3, 2022

CAROL ANN BOONE, (formerly) WILLIAMS, affectionately known as “The GOV”, was born on January 30, 1945, in Chapel Oaks, MD to the late Oscar and Mary Williams. On February 3, 2022, at the age of 77, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend transitioned. She was loved by many and never met a stranger. Carol graduated in 1962 from Fairmont Heights High School in Chapel Oaks, MD. Immediately following graduation, she was a childcare provider. The special way she loved and disciplined the children she cared for, endeared them to her – many viewing her as a second mother. Soon after, she went on to work in the federal government as a dedicated civil servant in various agencies for more than 30 years. After her retirement from the Department of Energy in 1994, Carol was a Maryland Lottery agent and a volunteer member of the 32/47 Allentown Road Volunteer Fire Department in Fort Washington, MD, primarily as a Bingo caller. She was also a bingo caller at many other installations, notably, The Elk’s Lodge in Temple Hills, MD and Oxon Hill Fire Dept in Oxon Hill, MD. In her spare time, she loved and enjoyed all aspects of BINGO! She was most famously known for her bus trips to Atlantic City which was an annual occurrence for many years. On June 1, 1984, she married the long-time love of her life the late John Vincent Boone, Sr. of Upper Marlboro, MD. From this union they had one daughter, Denise Kim Williams: and two grandsons, Nico Carroll Williams and Justin Anthony Williams. Carol brought the unapologetic authentic funny wherever she went. Always the life of the party, her comedic genius was ever on display when family and friends gathered – we all remember the Easter Bunny on the bus story, and also her winning first place at Wayson’s Corner Bingo every year for her Halloween costumes. She was also a gifted cook and caterer often hosting family and friends. She is survived by her daughter and daughter-in-law, Denise and Dana Drayton-Williams; her grandsons, Nico and Justin; siblings Nina Williams, Walter (Mario) Williams, and Delores Nelson, as well as a host of nieces, nephews and cousins. She is preceded in death by her brothers Robert and John Williams. Carol “GOV” Boone will be sorely missed. Making people laugh is her lasting legacy. The family will receive family and friends at Mount Calvary Catholic Church 6700 Marlboro Pike, Forestville, MD 20747 on Tuesday, February 22, 2022 from 10:00 – 11:00 am for the viewing with the funeral service from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm. The repast will immediately follow the service at The American Legion Post 259, 9122 Piscataway Road, Clinton, MD 20735. Burial will take place, at a later date, on Thursday, March 17, 2022 at 11:15 am at The Maryland Veterans Cemetery in Cheltenham, MD.
