Carole Eddins

CAROLE MOBAYED EDDINS, age 80, of Lincoln, Neb., passed away peacefully on August 26, 2018, after a struggle with dementia. Carole was born July 13, 1938, in Ashland, Kentucky, the daughter of Louis A. Mobayed and Lavella Hatfield. Carole graduated from Huntington East High School in Huntington, West Virginia, where she received numerous awards and recognition, including Miss Highlander 1955. She continued her education at Marshall University in Huntington, where she was a member of Alpha Chi Omega sorority. In 1958, Carole married her high school sweetheart, Stuart L. Eddins, at Highlawn Presbyterian Church in Huntington. In 1961, they moved to Lincoln, Nebraska, with their first child, Stuart L. Eddins Jr.; the family soon grew to include daughters Susan Kay and Elizabeth Ann. Throughout her life, Carole was active in her church homes including First Presbyterian Church and later Eastridge Presbyterian Church; all brought her great joy. Carole’s time in the Urban Development Department for the City of Lincoln included working on many different neighborhood redevelopment projects. The project closest to her heart was the revitalization of the Haymarket neighborhood including the “Iron Horse Legacy” mural and the restored #710 steam locomotive that anchored the area.
