I remember spending so much time with Aunt Carol when I was younger. Some memories are fuzzy, but I always remember having a wonderful time with her & family. Even though we were not in close contact these past years, I have held her in my thoughts. My condolences to the rest of the family & sending love to each one of you.

Aunt Carol was always more than just an aunt. She embodied love, kindness, forgiveness, and humor. She was always there when I needed her. She was my protector and light during the dark times in life. She loved unconditionally! She loved our God with all her heart and was a prayer warrior for many of us. Til we meet again, much love and affection for your family , your grateful niece, Sharon

As I write this I can hardly see through my tears. We spent so many times together since 1958. Went to school together, on walks, shopping, I almost lived at the Elliott home through our teens. You were with me when I had to go to the hospital for my back tests . And I even was asked to chaperon you on your dates (remember Pete? "These kids are alright"with the flashlight in my face).
I will miss your laugh, your smile and so so much more.
You are more like blood to me then just the the longest best friend I have ever had.
We watched our kids be born and they have looked at each other as cousins.
You always looked at everyone as being beautiful. You never saw race or color or gender in anyone. Everyone was equal . You forgave for mistakes made.
You were always there to help someone and would not take no for an answer. You gave from your heart and all you ever needed was to know you made someone happy. I and all will never forget your loving and giving ways.
You have had to go through so much in the past years, so for that I am happy you are out of pain.
They say that thunder is someone bowling in heaven. If you do that, I wish you would throw yourself down here like you did down the alley in Brookfield the first time we ever bowled.
So good friend (sister) , say a good word for me so we will meet again.
You will be in my heart forever.
And I will "Just Close My Eyes" and it
will be ,God will take care of us just wait and see. ❤😪 Adele

Mom was notorious for her one liners. It was Patty's and mine first real date. We had planned on going out for dinner. Patty got a phone call that day saying that Jennifer's First Penance was that night. Patty is Jen's Godmother so she had to be there. I offered to go with her. She asked "really?" I said yes. This would be my first time meeting her mom. I figured it would be safe. The service was traditional and we planned on going out after.
Jennifer had just finished her first penance when the priest invited those wishing to come up for penance may at this time. Jennifer leans forward and says "mommy you should go up". Mom looks at her watch, then looks at us with a straight face and says" he doesn't have enough time for me today". I looked at Patty and we both started to laugh, trying not to laugh in church it turned to crying. That was my first impression of my Mother-In-Law to be. For the past 27 years she's been a mom to me. I love You Mom.
Love Kevin

I was a little troubled in my younger years (to those I have hurt, I am sorry, please forgive me) and Aunt Carol never made me feel bad or unloved for my young troubled ways , her tolerance, patience, understanding and just unconditional love gave me hope as a young person which I have never forgotten. The kindness she showed me , taught me that not all people are bad. I will never forget her hugs I looked forwarded to them when I visited they always made me feel safe. I will always keep these beatiful memories of my Aunt Carol close to my heart. I appreciate the gift my Aunt Carol was to me and always will. I love you Aunt Carol and thank you.
Love your niece Belinda
Uncle Pete and family my thoughts and prayers are with with you , I miss and love you guys.
Love Belinda

My mom was the most giving and caring person I know. I will always remember the times she gave her BINGO winnings that she asked the Lord to help her win to those she had prayed for to receive the assistance. No question asked and not a penny short of the winnings. She loved helping the people she loved.

One year we were Christmas shopping in Walmart and an older gentlemen ahead of us in the checkout line was trying to buy a few things but was short on funds so I paid the balance for him. My mom made me let her pay me back. Said she was proud of me but she wanted to cover my cost because money doesn't grow on trees.

My mom tought me to love everyone I meet until they gave me reason not to but even then still love them from a distance. She was an amazing woman. I love and miss her dearly.
