Carol  was born on July, 20th in 1943 in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Carl and Patricia Phillips. Carol’s family was an Air Force family and she attended school in numerous states throughout her childhood, graduating from Lincoln Southeast in Lincoln, Nebraska and would go on to attend college at Oklahoma University.

After moving to Johnson County KS, she met and married her husband Kenneth Hite on December 7th, 1968. Ken and Carol would be blessed by their life work and ministry together, Christian Book and Gift Stores, based in Olathe, Topeka and Lawrence, Kansas. Carol loved her job in bookkeeping, she would work passionately alongside her husband for 32 years. She and Ken would eventually retire in 2008.

Ultimately, Carol took great pleasure in her family and church as she followed Christ. She and Ken were among the original families that started Olathe Bible Church. She once recounted, “I have a family…in the church and a future in the Lord. He’s my friend and I have an assured eternity.”

Carol was preceded in Death, by her father Carl Phillips, her mother Patricia Phillips, brother Lawrence Phillips, and sister Judi Caponetto. Surviving are her children, Eric Hite (Melanie) and Barbara Guinn (Dan), and her five grandchildren, Shawn Hite, Jacob Hite (Jade), Daniel Guinn, Nathan Guinn, and Ashlyn Guinn.

In lieu of flowers, Carol and the family have requested that donations be made to Olathe Bible Church Missions.
