Carol Urbanske Eldred, 74, was born on June 22, 1946, in Scranton, Pennsylvania and passed away on July 18, 2020, in Conroe, Texas.

Carol’s life was fairly simple by today's standards, but while it was happening it was quite remarkable. She preferred to stand on her own two feet. With just a high school education, she had a successful 40 year career in the Federal government. Beginning in the 1960's as a clerk, she was promoted time and time again throughout her career. She achieved a high-level management role in the 1990's, standing shoulder to shoulder with a peer group of men, most of whom had advanced college degrees. In her last role writing legal decisions for Social Security Disability cases, she stood in a group full of master’s degree’ d professionals and attorneys. Her capacity far outstretched her education, and she proved it over and over again. She would never call herself a trailblazer, but she will be remembered exactly that way.

Carol married Richard Eldred at 28, late for the era when most girls married their high school or college sweethearts. They were married for 46 years, mostly happy with peaks and valleys, as you would expect. Despite her troubled childhood, she made a happy home. She was a hard-working mom who managed the household, cooked, and made time for paperwork on evenings and Sunday afternoons. She was a woman whose best friend was her husband and a woman without a verbal filter, but who never told a lie.

A celebration of Carol’s life will be held on Friday, July 24, 2020, at 2:00pm at Cashner Funeral Home in Conroe, Texas. The service will be livestreamed on Facebook via Cashner Funeral Home Facebook page.

Ms Carol, you are a truly amazing and sweet person. I am so happy to have got to know you. I really am going to miss you at Bristol Park, all the painting and making bracelets that match. You taught me a lot. I am really missing our talks. I talked you into going to activities with me and you loved it. I told you went I took you places with me, I would never leave your side. And we had so much fun together everyday. Everyone knew if you was missing we was together. So here they would look for us . Love you always in my heart Pamela

Sweet Carol and I usually got to see each other mostly around family holidays. We enjoyed visiting, especially on Thanksgivings. It was always a special treat. I will miss our visits and miss her .
She leaves behind her beloved Terry and Carla knowing that where there is love, there is courage and comfort.
Deepest Sympathies and much love,
Jackie Young
