Obituary of Carole Marie Barnett
Carole Marie (Bobanic) Barnett, 77 of Henderson, NV passed away peacefully at home on January 23, 2023 from a rare neurologic disorder. Carole was born on September 25, 1945 in Youngstown, Ohio and was the youngest daughter to the late John and Ann (Dzumba) Bobanic. She graduated from Chaney High School in 1963, matriculated at Youngstown University and received her degree in Elementary Education, in 1967. She taught various grades at Byzantine Catholic Central, Poland, OH, Yorkville Elementary, Elmhurst, IL and St. Raphael Catholic School, Naperville, IL. She coached volleyball, softball, served as Athletic Director and worked many years at Springbrook Golf Course in Naperville, as the Golf Shop Manager. She also was a lifelong member of the Greek Catholic Union Fraternal Organization Lodge 164 and a member of St. Francis of Assisi Knights of Columbus Lady's Auxiliary. Carole was married to Donald Barnett for 53 years and together they raised two successful sons. In addition to living in Naperville, they also resided in Bloomington, MN and Memphis, TN. She and her husband retired to the Las Vegas area spending time in the warm sun playing golf, making new friends and frequenting casinos. She was a loving mother, avid golfer, bowler and a huge sports fan of the Chicago Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox and Vegas Golden Knights. Her love of sports was exceeded by her love of family, cooking, baking and playing games. Her Christmas confections will be sorely missed. Carole is predeceased by her parents, her older sister and husband, Shirley and Gene Sikora. She is survived by her loving husband, Donald; sons Dr. Sean (Desiree) Barnett of Arlington Heights, IL; Nicholas (Stephanie) Barnett of St. John, IN; 5 grandchildren George, Anne, Gavin, Gwen and Darren; older brother Basil (Patricia) Bobanic of Tampa, FL and beloved nieces and nephews. Visitation services will be held at Palm Eastern Mortuary, 7600 S. Eastern Ave, Las Vegas, NV on February 8, 2023 from 4-7pm. Special thanks to the entire staff at Nathan Adelson Hospice; especially CNA Amanda and Nurse Joy for the comfort they provided. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to St. Jude Children’s Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 in Carole’s name.
