Carole Lee (nee Dietzel) Kavanaugh, 84, of St. Louis passed away on Saturday, May 12, 2018. She is preceded in death by her parents, Arnold and Olga (nee Meyer) Dietzel; husband, Elmer Kavanaugh, Jr.; sister, Doris (Joseph) Walski; niece Kathie; and sister-in-law, JoAnn “Sis” (surviving Jack) Bielefeld.

Carole is survived by her children, Gail (Sam) Ribaudo, Gwen Spicer (Greg Chromoga), Ginger Kavanaugh, and Tim “Sonny” (Amy) Kavanaugh; grandchildren, Scott, Jake, Jennifer, Emily, Kelly; and nieces and nephews, Sandy, Terry, Jeanne, and Karin.

Carole was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. Nothing made her happier than spending time with her grandbabies. She could be very high-spirited and sassy at times, but she was a giving and thoughtful lady who loved to watch her Turner Classic Movies! She will be missed.

The funeral service is on Wednesday, May 16 at 11 a.m. She will then be laid to rest beside her husband at Mt. Lebanon Cemetery.

Gail, Gwen, Ginger and Tim,

I am so sorry about your loss. As I said to Tim, your Mom was truly one of a kind.

"Speak of me as you have always done. Remember the good times, laughter, and fun. Share the happy memories we have made, do no let them wither or fade. I've rested my eyes and gone to sleep. Sometimes our final days may be a test but remember me when I was at my best. I've lived a life filled with joy and fun. I'm peaceful now, put your mind at ease." ~Anonymous

I will miss you Aunt Carole! I hope you have found the peace you were searching for and are enjoying catching up with Uncle Elmer, mom (Doris), and dad (Joe)!

Love,
Jeanne
