Mary Carol Sorrell, a Colorado Native living in Loveland, died Wednesday May 15, 2019. Born in Delta, CO on March 8, 1934 to Ayshford E. and Gladys G. Tyler. Her family moved to Trinidad and Las Animas CO before settling in Denver. Carol attended elementary school, Smiley Junior High and graduated from East High School in 1952. She attended Colorado A&M College in Fort Collins in September and was initiated into Delta Delta Delta sorority. In October of 1952 she met Douglas D. Sorrell on a blind date, from which a friendship was formed that later blossomed to a life long romance. She married Doug on June 18, 1954 in Montview Presbyterian Church in Denver.

Carol was employed by the Chemistry Department at the college to help put Doug through his final year of school. After graduation the couple moved to Sterling, CO where their oldest daughter Nancy was born. In 1960 the family moved to Johnstown, CO, where their daughter Susan was born. The family then moved to Longmont, CO where they lived for over thirty years, until retirement when Doug and Carol made their final move to Loveland, CO.

Carol was an accomplished artist using several different media. She enjoyed music, played the piano, loved reading and travel and was a wicked good bridge player. She was also a merciless competitor in cribbage and Mexican train. In their retirement years the couple travelled to the British Isles, Europe, Italy, the Greek Islands, the Caribbean, Alaska and many times to Taos, New Mexico which was always a favorite.

Carol is survived by her husband of nearly 65 years, Douglas Sorrell, her sister Jill Tyler Olson, her daughters Nancy Hollmaier (Scott) and Susan Wold (Rick), four grandchildren, Shelby Hollmaier Ruff (Chase), Cooper Hollmaier (Janessa), and Tanner and McKinley Wold. She was also blessed to meet her great grandson Pierce Ruff. She was adored by all her grandchildren who loved spending time with her.

Memorial gifts may be made to the Friends of the Loveland Library.

I looked out my window today and saw the house across the street that Doug and Carol built and moved into in 1999. Carol was standing at their back door, waving at me.

Oh, how I wish I could go back to those days and years having them as my neighbors, but more importantly, my best friends.

We planned our travels with them and made some pretty tremendous memories. It’s time now for me to freeze those memories so they might live forever within me while making new memories with my mentor, Doug.

Here fishy, fishy, fishy

I would like to think that I won’t shed tears that Carol is gone but smile because she lived. We share a story, a wonderful story of friendship, family and travels. A story filled with laughter and adventure. I will cherish those memories for the rest of my days. Words can’t express how much she mean’t to me. I will always miss her and hold her dear to my heart. Our story doesn’t end, you will be with us in spirit as we enter into the next chapter. This isn’t goodbye my dear friend, it’s just until we meet again. Godspeed Carol.

Love,
Mary

My husband and I were friends with Carol at Indian Peaks Elementary School in Longmont from 1978 to 1983. We shared that friendship with Carol Soupley, Barbara Marrion and many others. Ron and I were co-presidents of the Parent Teacher Organization and have many wonderful memories of Carol. What a joy she was!

Carol will always be remembered with a smile and a warm greeting. I loved to play Bridge and Hand and Foot with her and see her competitive nature. She was kind and pleasant with all. What beautiful artwork. We were very good friends and she will always be remembered . Freda Pollock
