I worked with Carol at Dixon for 10 years. She was a highly competent assistant with great organizational skills, but most of all, she was loving and caring to children. Children of all ages were so happy to work with Carol. As a colleague, she had a great sense of humor and was unfailingly kind to everyone. It is hard to believe that she has passed. Carol will always be in my heart. I wish Ronn and her family comfort in knowing what a wonderful person she was and how fully she lived her life. I am currently taking care of my granddaughter in Boston. I am sorry to miss Carol's visitation and service. My sincerest condolences to all of you. Sheila Fabiszak

Carol was a dear friend of many many years. I loved her laugh and sense of humor. We had many wonderful memories together that I’ll cherish. She always spoke so highly of her children and grandchildren and share all that they were doing with our friend group. My deepest sympathies to her family, Julie Smith

Carol was a friend I met through Dixon Elementary School. Her kindness, smile and obvious love of her students were some of her traits I will never forget.

Carol and Rusty's oldest son Ron was born shortly after our youngest son Jeff. Carol and Rusty (as we called him) were stationed in Las Vegas as I recall when Ron was born. They needed all things baby and I was so happy to share our used baby clothes and other baby necessities with them. I felt that we shared motherhood for a brief period of time. Carol was an upbeat and outgoing woman who was so enjoyable to be with. I am so sad that she left us far too early. Sending our love to the family. Sadly, we cannot make the funeral since we will be in Seattle on a long planned trip. I hope the ceremony will help heal the pain. Love Herb (Uncle Jeff) and Ruth Huebner

My heart breaks for your family & friends. Our years at church camp (way back when) were so fun. You became a good friend. Once children came it was harder to stay in contact. I know you had a deep faith in God so I know he will wrap you in his arms & give you peace.💗

I’m so sad to think I won’t hear her voice or see her face anymore. I am so sorry for all of you Patterson’s. May Jesus wrap his arms around you all and know she is with Him in His arms.

I got to know Carol at Terry Visocky’s swim parties. She was such a kind, sweet, down-to-earth person who loved her family and liked to have fun. In our meetings, she came across as one of those special people who cared about others. I will miss her! My sympathies.
