Dear Families and Friends,

What a blessing Carol is, still making us happy and with our Lord Jesus Christ. My relationship with her was through work and I also enjoyed staying in touch with her from time to time once she retired. She was always willing to help, building up and never tearing down. Carol is truly a fruitful person and blessing from God.

Charity, joy, peace, patience Galatians 5:22...

Carol was a classmate at Hurley Highschool and we graduated together in 1956, over the years we connected at the class reunions and kept in touch. She was a dear friend and always a warm and caring person. To be her friend was a treasured honor and her memory will be treasured as well.

My sincere condolences to the family of Carol. She was a very sweet woman and we will miss her at St. Francis Xavier. She was generous with her time and talent at our parish. Carol became friends with my mom, JoAnn, in the past 18 months and was a good friend to her.

My sincere condolences to Carol's family. Carol was my boss at ABPA in the 1970s and remained a friend since. She was the best! We loved sharing bagels in the morning and always looked forward to the day ahead. This is a sad time for all of her family and friends but so thankful that Carol was part of our lives and made it so much better. Rest in peace dear friend.

It was with great sadness that we learned about Carols passing. Carol was one of the kindest, most caring people we knew, and always went out of her way to help friends and neighbors. Her home was a designated a safe place for my daughters when they were growing up in Burbank, they knew if they needed anything that they could always run to Carol's house. I have many cherished memories of Carol and always enjoyed seeing the yearly gift from Erich, in heaven, of some amazing piece of jewelry that he had given her.
I was honored and blessed to have known Carol and call her my friend. She was truly a blessing in our life and we will miss her. May our Lord bless and comfort the family and friends of Carol during this difficult time. Please accept our sincere condolences.
