On Friday, February 1, 2019, hearts were shattered in Waynesburg, as Carol Jean Yankura, 68, originally of Rices Landing, left her earthly duties. She was born August 20, 1950 in Morgantown, WV, a daughter of the late Charles and Elizabeth Sullivan Rohulich. Carol was a 1968 graduate of Mapletown High School and also a graduate West Virginia University Career College. She had previously worked for District Magistrate Rapchak in Carmichaels, the Jefferson-Morgan High School cafeteria, and Giant Eagle deli in Dry Tavern. On September 8, 1973 she married, John K. Yankura, who survives; and they celebrated over forty-five years of marriage. She was the beloved mother to a daughter and son-in-law, Carol (Robbie) Howard of Waynesburg; three grandchildren, Chase Robert Howard, Niko Rian Howard, and Mia Alizibeth Howard; three brothers, John Rohulich of Cambridge, OH, Charles Rohulich Jr. of Bobtown, and George Rohulich of Bobtown; several nieces and a nephew. Carol truly loved being around people, her family, and especially her grandchildren. Her warm smile could light up the room. Carol had a love for all animals, and the neighborhood cats communicated this well with one another. She believed in “no cat, left behind.” Before succumbing to the terrible disease of dementia, Carol also enjoyed smoking and did very well trying to hide her “cancer sticks” from her daughter and grandchildren. Carol also can be noted as the grandmother that truly got ran over by a deer- although not a reindeer, it is still notable. Carol spent many years at Yogi Bear campground with her husband, mother, and family. The memories that were created at Yogi will forever be imprinted on her grandchildren’s heart. A heartfelt Thank You goes out to Leann Leonard, the loving Rolling Meadows staff, Traci Roberts, Stacy Green-Cox and the Via-Quest Team. Carol will be so deeply missed by her husband, daughter, and grandchildren.

John and Carol were friends with my Mom and Dad Bob and Carol Ann Conklin of Crucible. Took care of Carol a few times when she was in the Waynesburg hospital I was an LPN 3rd floor The thing I admired most about Carol was her honesty. She said exactly what she thought and she was funny. My sympathy to the family. RIP Carol💜

So sorry for your loss. John and Carol were friends of my parents for as long as I can remember. My parents were Bob and June Kronk from Rices Landing. I remember waving to Carol as she sat up by the garage all the time or when her and John walked by by Mom's house. Lovely lady she was. Love to you all.💞
