The former Carol Jeanne Miller was born November 11, 1936, in Lockport, Illinois, to Roy and Dorothy O’Connor Miller.  She graduated from Moody Bible Institute with a degree in Christian Education, and married Rev. Thomas Wesley McDermott on October 9, 1971, in Boardman, Ohio. Prior to her marriage, she was a Christian Education Director at Bethel Baptist Church in Joliet, Illinois and then at Evangel Baptist Church in Boardman, Ohio. She later became Church Secretary at Grandview Church, Davenport, until her retirement along with her husband in October of 2007.

Carol enjoyed mentoring other women and was heavily involved in Womens Ministries, especially at Grandview Church.  She loved to sew but her greatest joy was spending time with her sons and their families.
