Carol was proud of her legacy as a nurse. She served her community for over 31 years at St. Mary’s Hospital where she cared for babies in the nursery. Carol enjoyed her 50 years at Sandy Pines and the friends she made there. She enjoyed the many Christian concerts at Sandy Pines where she would listen to her favorite hymns and visit with friends up and down the aisle. She had a kind and caring heart, which was influenced by her faith in Christ. Carol had many hobbies which included traveling, square dancing, board games, playing cards, staying in touch with her family and friends on social media with her tablet, and collecting beanie babies. She loved her family and her family loved her (and her homemade potato salad in the green bowl).

Funeral services will be held 11 a.m. Tuesday, September 14, 2021 at Baldwin Street Christian Reformed Church, 2101 Baldwin St., Jenison, MI 49428 with visitation one hour prior to the service. Carol will be laid to rest at Georgetown Cemetery next to Earnie. In memory of Carol and in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Unity Christian High School.

I was hoping to come and extend my sympathies to Carol and family on Monday, August 30, but my sister died that morning and I was unable to attend. Now, Carol too, is gone but I want her family to know what a beautiful lady Carol was. I worked with her at St Mary’s for years and had nothing but admiration for her and her warm, generous and kind spirit!
She always had a smile and her hugs were the best! It sounds like a cliche, but everyone DID like Carol!! I am sure you will miss her!

So sorry to hear of your family’s second earthly “loss” in such a short time. Carol and my dad Herman Lubbinge were cousins. She was at all cousin gatherings, showers, and family events. She was always full of enthusiasm and expressed sincere, caring comments. My sincere sympathy to your family.
