Carol was an avid music lover. She loved her rock, classic rock and 80s rock. Her album collection she was proud of for many years. In her memory, please pick a song that reminds you of her, play it loud for her as she makes her journey home to that “peaceful easy feeling”. In her last decade of declining health, she couldn’t dance to her songs, she loved to dance. Have a dance for/with her, for we know she’s able to dance now.
Carol's family would like to acknowledge all the care and compassion she has received over the years by Dr. Jay Geddes, Dr. Roya Shaikholeslami, Dr. Christine Macie and Lana, RN. Most recent addition was Dr. Rashad Ali to her respiratory care. For the care received by ProResp including the kind delivery people.
Visitation for immediate family to take place Thursday, August 18th. Cremation to follow.
A Celebration of Life will be held Sunday, September 25th, on her 64th birthday.
