Carla was born into the loving family of Johnny and Eva Kleckley, who both preceded her in death.
Carla, a lifelong resident of Macon County, was born on October 15, 1967. She received her education and graduated from Macon County High School. Her knack for fashion, style and love for children impelled her to further her education at South Georgia Technical School in the field of Cosmetology and Early Childhood Development.
Carla’s deep love for children enhanced her days working lovingly and diligently with her nephews and nieces also sharing her joy with the children of Kidz-R-Us Daycare for many years.
Carla enjoyed relishing in fashion as she was a true “fashionista”. She will always be known for her coordinated style of dress. From head-to-toe she flowed with coordination of colors, style, class, elegance and pizazz. Carla was also known for her great culinary skills in the kitchen, along with laughing, having a good time and being that go-to-person to have a genuine listening ear for sound advice.
Carla being raised with the truth of God’s word dedicated her heart and life to Jehovah, the only true God as one of his Christian Witnesses on May 7, 2016 and she shared her faith with others by means of the public door-to-door ministry and letter writing.
Carla was loved and will be missed by many.
