Carrie Lee Rohm Cloninger
July 28, 1936 - March 19, 2023

DALLAS, N.C. - Mrs. Carrie Lee Rohm Cloninger, age 86, formerly of Dallas, died on Sunday, March 19, 2023, at Terra Bella Senior Living of Shelby.

A funeral service to celebrate Carrie’s life will be held at 1 p.m. on Friday, March 24, 2023, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Dallas with Rev. Dr. John Spencer officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery. The family will receive friends from 12-12:45 p.m. prior to the service.

She was born on July 28, 1936, in Gaston County, a daughter of the late Benjamin Palmer Rohm and Lila Mae Dellinger Rohm.
