Carol Anne Roake Clayton AGE: 77 • Wake Forest, NC Carol Anne Roake Clayton of Wake Forest, NC peacefully passed away in her home with her family by her side on February 4, 2016 after a short struggle with cancer. She was 77 years old. Carol was born in Long Branch, NJ on March 18, 1938 and was raised by her parents Esther Kittell Roake and James Herbert Roake in Avon by the Sea. As a young girl she attended the Avon by the Sea Elementary School where her mother was a teacher. She graduated from Manasquan High School in 1956. In 1959 Carol graduated from the Anne May School of Nursing in Neptune NJ where she met many of her lifelong friends. After nursing school she worked as a nurse for several years before becoming a full time mom. Carol is survived by her loving and devoted husband Alfred "Al" Clayton with whom she enjoyed a happy marriage of 57 years. Together they raised three boys: Bruce, Steven, and Kenneth. She loved and was very proud of her three grandchildren: John, Mao, and Lana. Carol and Al lived together at the Jersey Shore for many years. Over the years they had homes in Avon, Neptune, Wall Township, and at Greenbriar 1 in Brick where she especially enjoyed social activities with her friends.
