Aunt Carol was such a lovely and patient person. I spent so many hours in her home hanging out because Marie and I were thick-as-thieves. Aunt Carol always welcomed me to her home as, I am sure, the angels will welcome her home.

My Aunt Carol was a very special, kind and patient person and I will always remember her with a smile on her face and a laugh in the air. Between myself, my brother Dan, Cousin Jimmie and Cousin Eddie, the four of us could raise quite a ruckus and I know try the patience of all adults within earshot. Yet, I never heard Aunt Carol raise her voice or lose her patience: save once when she cracked Edwin on his bare-necked hind end with a wooden spoon right in the middle of the great underwear fight; which took place very late at night. (I'm sure that was not the first, nor the last, time that Ed took one on the hind end). I must admit that looking back on it, Ed had it coming, so I don't count that one as Aunt Carol's. Rest in peace Aunt Carol, and thank you for your kindness and quick laugh; I can still hear it as if it were yesterday.

When I joined our group way back around 2010, Carol was a welcoming part of the group that made me feel good about being together and sharing our journey. She was a happy person to be around. She will be missed. Sincerely, Rick

Carol was a special person, especially volunteering to help with the sacristy linens for many years. I enjoyed visiting with her at the annual RiverWest luncheons along with Ellen, Ron, Eileen and her late husband, Don. My deepest sympathy to Carol’s family. Mary Ann
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Always enjoyed visiting with Carol at church and at the River West luncheons. I was pleased to know that we were distant relatives because I thought she was a special lady. My condolences to Ellen, Ginny, Jim and the rest of the family and may Carol rest in peace. Eileen Winger
Janell M Harbury left a message on September 30, 2020:
I would like to share the memories I have of Carol. I met Carol about 15 years ago because we shared an unusual blood disorder. Soon we were carpooling together, along with Jadwiga to our quarterly support group meetings in Racine. I am hopeless with directions and so we would always get lost trying to get there. Fortunately we all always laughed about it and eventually found our way. The fun or our trips was that we got caught-up with each others' lives and families. Carol was always pleasant and showed the love and concern and appreciation for her husband, children and grandchildren. I will miss my friend, but I know she is now pain free, mobile and happy with those who have gone before her. My sympathy goes out to all her family. Sincerely, Janell
