Carol graduated from Divine Savior Holy Angels Catholic High School. Before retirement, she was employed with Hydrite Chemical Company and SC Johnson. Carol was also a member of the Catholic Slovak Women’s Association.
Carol’s first and longest love was her husband, Ken. Ken was her life partner, her travel partner and all around best friend. Followed by Ken her biggest loves were her children Craig and Kari. Her grandchildren were what she was proudest of – Meghan, Jared, Sarah, Alexis and Kaleigh. Nothing brought her more joy than her family did.
Carol impacted us all in a very special way. She was our biggest cheerleader, never missing a sporting or school event. She loved watching us all compete in one way or another. She wanted us all to be successful in whatever we did.
Carol showed each of us what true love, compassion and forgiveness was.
Carol loved traveling the world with Ken. Seeing the world with him was something she loved to do and took every chance she could to have that time with him.
Carol’s other passions were drawing/painting, gardening, bird watching, history and sharing her childhood memories. There was nothing she couldn’t draw and it always had to be perfect. The love for all of those showed in how she took care of her home, her gardens, and her family.
What we will miss most is her love. There was no greater love than the love she gave us all.
The world lost one of the best, but Heaven gained one of their brightest angels and she will be guiding us every day of our lives.
She is now reunited with her Mom and Dad, whom she missed tremendously.
