She retired in 2007 and enjoyed going to concerts at the casino, playing cards with friends, playing on her SMEAR league, and spending time with her “Grand Dog” Bella, whom she adored.

Carol is survived by her loving daughter, Lynn (Gary) Schmidt of Gladstone, MI.

She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Lucille, and her husband, Dick:
Infant Granddaughter: Jamie

    This news hit me like a brick, even though Lynn had called me everyday. My heart breaks for Lynn, Gary, and Bella. Carol was the kindest and most giving person. She was great to work with, and was so willing to show anyone how to do something. Always seemed in a sunny mood. We shared lots of TV shows together while talking on the phone. Picked a great picture of her. Love, and rest in peace.
