In memory of Carol Ray, longtime friend and mentor to Notary Signing Agents

Carol Ray, founder of Notary2Pro and one of the country’s most popular and respected Notary Signing Agent educators, passed away on February 6, 2022. She was an important pioneer in the Notary Signing Agent industry and will be missed.

A former Escrow Manager, Carol worked as a Notary Signing Agent. Seeing a need for comprehensive training and education for NSAs, she started Notary2Pro and grew to become one of the nation’s most popular and well-known Notary Signing Agent instructors. For more than a decade, she trained and mentored thousands of Signing Agents across the country.

Carol Ray

Carol was always enthusiastic and supportive of Signing Agents and worked hard to ensure they had the best training and preparation to succeed in their work. Many of her students praised her not just for her teaching, but for the additional time and effort she dedicated to helping students find their first assignments and start their loan signing careers. She was a popular presenter at NNA Conferences and an ongoing guest contributor to The National Notary Bulletin, writing many articles with helpful tips for new and experienced NSAs.

The National Notary Association offers its sympathies and condolences to Carol’s family, friends and students.

I am very sorry to read of Carol's passing. I never met Carol but I had an occasion to chat with her on LinkedIn. I've seen her at name and/or picture at various notary sites and/or functions for the past 7 years or so. Sympathies to all who knew her and will miss her.

I am blessed to be one of her graduates, she was truly very kind and spent time with her graduates. She gives the personal touch a new meaning, before my first signing, I called her, (as she instructs all of us to do if we want) and she answered and talked with me as I drove 1.5 hours to my first signing. The comfort I got laughing and talking with her, put me at ease. We didn't just discuss the notary business, she was really interested in me as a person, and made me feel as if I was the only agent she had, truly a wonderful gift. She will be missed.

Praying for the family and those who knew her best. When mentoring fellow notaries, Notary 2 Pro was one of only two recommended sources I consistently recommended for training. The other was the National Notary Association. She will be missed.

My condolences and prayers to Friends and Family. What an awesome Woman of Excellence who by her actions showed true leadership. I never had the honor to meet Carol, but just by looking at her picture projects such love, patience, and a woman who genuinely cared about others and more importantly, took the time to show it. Thank you CAROL!

Carol was so helpful and patient when I was first starting out and I had so many questions. I couldn’t believe how generous she was with her time and how nice and kind she was. She played a huge part in building the confidence I needed to get off to a good start. God bless you Carol, you’ll be greatly missed.

I am a new Notary Public, I have listened to her training. I am sad to see she passed. Praying God's favor

Carol answered a question for me on facebook when I had a question on advertisement. I printed her suggestion and kept it in my office. Ive only been a notary for 6 months. Im new to the business and she touched me. This tells you how big a loss this person was to our industry. Gods favor to your family in your time on need.

My heartfelt condolences to family and friends! When I first launched my signing business, I was literally terrified, but Carol had a way in calming me down. She always answered my questions with professionalism and explained everything in layman terms so that I could understand! I never met her in person but the many times I called her I could feel her presence! She will definitely be missed and I pray healing during this time of bereavement and years to come. Her legacy will never die!!!

She most certainly was an amazing force in the industry. Carol made learning fun and she really cared about the success of each student. May her spirited energy continue through all who had the pleasure of knowing her.
