Born November 25th, 1948 to parents Alcide & Edna Carty in Palme o Point, St. Ki s West Indies. Nola is one of
12 children who a ended Trinity School where she accomplish most of her studies. She migrated to St. Mar n
around the age of 15 to work with her Aun e Rose to help ﬁnancially support her family back in St. Ki s doing
odd jobs of cleaning, seamstress work, etc. She completed her schooling in St. Mar n and returned to St. Ki s at
the age of 17 for a short me before she migrated to St. Croix, US Virgin Islands in 1968. There she enrolled two
semesters at the College of the Virgin Islands. While in St. Croix she also worked odd jobs to help support her
family back home. In 1974, she returned to St. Ki s from St. Croix with her 4 year old son Orville. Nola did not
waste much me once she returned to St. Ki s and started courses at the University Center of the West Indies
while she worked at Jack Tar Village Hotel (now Royal St. Ki s Hotel) as a waitress. She worked at Jack Tar for
about 8 years and formed special friendships like Emelda Warner, Juanita Wa ley and many others.
In 1982, Nola returned to the Virgin Islands and this me to St. Thomas where she reconnect with her son
Orville, parents and other family members. Shortly a er arriving in St. Thomas, Nola found employment at
Franks Lock & Key as the store manager. Not knowing at the me how this career change would work out, with a
posi ve a tude took on the challenge, rolled up her sleeves and the rest is history. Nola bonded with her new
Franks Lock & Key work family very quickly and fell in love with her new posi on. Nola's hard work ethic and
love for her customers was infec ous and was known throughout St. Thomas as the Locksmith Lady at Franks.
Her eagerness to learn quickly gave her more conﬁdence as me went on. In 1988, Nola traveled to Las Vegas
and became bonded and cer ﬁed as a Locksmith. In 1990 she went to Chicago, Illinois and later in 1995 to
Orlando Florida for con nuous studies and training to help keep her skills current and up to date. Because of her
dedica on and commitment to her profession, Nola became that face everyone came to know at Franks for
about 39 years.
Nola's passion for life, family and community was the driving force to how she lived. She truly loved her son
Orville & wife Angela, Grand Daughter Olivia, mother Edna along with her 9 siblings, nieces, nephews and we
can't forget about her Sparkle. Aun e Nola was indeed the glue that kept the family together. She bridged the
gap whenever a bridge was needed. She did not wait around whenever things needed to get done. She just
made things happen. She sacriﬁced her own me and resources to do whatever was needed for a friend, a
family member and especially her mother Edna.
Nola was a natural born leader who lead with an iron ﬁst. She was always willing to take a chance on
opportuni es whenever presented. Whether it's a family reunion or planning her mother's 90th, 95th, 100th +
birthday gatherings, there was nothing too large or small. She was also the President of the Trinity School
Reunion group which she enjoyed very much. She put her heart and soul into everything she did and it always
showed. She could not stand laziness. She always had that “I CAN DO” a tude. Her energy and leadership
quali es were always on display. Everyone knew NOT to mess with Aun e Nola. If she gave you “THE LOOK”,
you be er watch out! Aun e Nola was very protec ve of her family and the people she loved. If you ever hear
her say, “you be er mine you”, just watch out. Nola's love for her family was limitless.
Nola also loved telling stories. When she shared, you always wanted to hear what she had to say. At the end of
each story, there would be lots of laughter followed with that signature high pitched cackle she is known for. You
had no choice but to laugh along and then wait for the next me she had a new story to tell.
Nola Carty was not only a great story teller, but most importantly she was a fantas c mother, grandmother,
daughter, sister, aunt, God Mother and friend. God allowed us to enjoy her for a short me on earth. She will
surely be missed. The memories of her life posi vely impacted us all in many ways and she will live on in our
hearts for a very long me.
Nola's favorite passage of Psalm 91: 2 reads, I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God
in whom I trust.” I know God has a much be er plan for her, so un l we meet again.
Rest in Heaven.

How Great Thou Art To God Be The Glory
Oh Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder To God be the glory, great things He has done;
Consider all the world Thy hands have made So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder Who yielded His life an atonement for sin,
Thy power throughout the universe displayed And opened the life gate that all may go in.
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee Refrain
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
How great Thou art, how great Thou art Let the earth hear His voice!
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
And when I think that God, His son not sparing Let the people rejoice!
Sent Him to die I scarce can take it in O come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
That on the cross my burden gladly bearing And give Him the glory, great things He has done.
He bled and died to take away my sin
O perfect redemp on, the purchase of blood,
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee To every believer the promise of God;
How great Thou art, how great Thou art The vilest oﬀender who truly believes,
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
When Christ shall come with shout of
acclama on Great things He has taught us, great things He has
And take me home what joy shall feel my heart done,
Then I shall bow in humble adora on and there And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
proclaim But purer, and higher, and greater will be

Blessed Assurance With my soul, (with my soul)
Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine! It is well, it is well, with my soul.
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salva on, purchase of God, Though Satan should buﬀet, though trials should
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood come,
Let this blest assurance control,
Chorus: That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
This is my story, this is my song, And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
Praising my Savior all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song, My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
Praising my Savior all the day long My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Perfect submission, perfect delight, Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels, descending, bring from above For me, be it Christ, be it Christ hence to live:
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love. If Jordan above me shall roll,
No pang shall be mine, for in death as in life,
Perfect submission, all is at rest, Thou wilt whisper Thy peace to my soul.
I in my Savior am happy and blest,
Watching and wai ng, looking above, But Lord, ' s for Thee, for Thy coming we wait,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love. The sky, not the grave, is our goal;
Oh, trump of the angel! Oh, voice of the Lord!
It Is Well With My Soul Blessed hope, blessed rest of my soul.
When peace like a river, a endeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll; And Lord, haste the day when the faith shall be
Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to know sight,
It is well, it is well, with my soul. The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall
It is well, (it is well), A song in the night, oh my soul!
