Mrs. Belk passed away peacefully in the early morning hours of August 25, 2014 in her home at The Cypress. Carol was born in Park Ridge, Illinois on August 27, 1927 to the late Irene and Carl Grotnes. She is also predeceased by her sister, Madeline, brother, Charles and daughter-in-law, Anne Belk.

She is survived by the love of her life, Irwin "Ike" Belk, of almost 66 years. They were married September 11, 1948.

In addition, she is survived by her grandchildren: Christopher Belk, Irwin Belk, II (Monica), Suzanne Belk, Mary and Carol Miltimore, David and Patricia Belk and Edward and Mary Ellen Goode, Charlotte and Jamee Wallis.

Carol was a devoted wife to Ike and always had his best interest at heart. They loved to travel and especially enjoyed deep sea fishing. She loved to claim that she caught the biggest catch. Carol was proud of her Norwegian heritage and was well known for her Norwegian pancakes, which were delicious.

She enjoyed her service as a founding trustee to Charlotte Latin School and as a board member of Discovery Place. Carol loved to grow orchids and share them with friends. She trusted and loved her Lord Jesus Christ, and was a friend to all.

Memorial services will be held on Thursday, August 28 at 11:00 a.m. at Myers Park Presbyterian Church, 2501 Oxford Place. A reception will be held in Oxford Hall following the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family would suggest memorials to Charlotte Latin, 9502 Providence Road, Charlotte, NC 28277 and Discovery Place, 301 N. Tryon Place, Charlotte, NC 28202.
