Lloyd Johnson, June 6, 2016 Julie, I just ran across the notice of your Mom's death on the internet. I had no idea. So sorry to hear the news. She always held a special place in my heart as I know she did in yours. I had lost contact information for her and for you over the years and had no way to find you or the family. I'm so sorry it took me this long to touch base with you. I hope your life is going well and wish you continued good fortune. Lloyd Johnson, February 11, 2015 How well I remember Carol from our years together at Trinity Lutheran School in Springfield, IL. Carol; always smart, always pretty, always kind. How fortunate to get to spend some time together with her and her daughter at our 50th Class Reunion last July. My deepest condulences to her grieving family. She will be missed! Mary Chapman Fales, March 31, 2008 Carol was one of the most dynamic women I’ve had the honor of knowing and working with over the last 11 years. A friend, good listener, joy to be around; all of this comes to mind when I think of Carol. As we remember Carol and celebrate her life, my prayers are with each of you: her family and friends. Donna King, March 20, 2008 Carol was a co-worker, but most importantly a dear friend. I know in my heart that she is in a better place, free of pain, suffering, and sorrow. I still look for her at Plano Super Bowl on Thursday evenings. May God bless and care for Carol and Carol's family now and forever. Richard "Dick" Clark, March 20, 2008 Carol was a great co-worker. If I needed her assistance on anything here in Canada, I could send her an email and she would be always willing to help. She was a wonderful person and she will be missed terribly. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. Take care. Sarah Timmins, March 20, 2008 There is a big hole in my heart. I cannot tell you how much Carol will be missed. I am so greatful that she was in my life. She was a dear and wonderful friend that was so full of life. She was always trying new things. I was amazed when she signed up for bowing, ice skating, dance, photography and tennis classes just to name a few. Carol lived life well. Over the nineteen years that I have know her, she was a travel buddy, movie buddy and an out to eat buddy. I will always cherish the fun memories and vacation stories and think of her often. My deepest sympathy to her wonderful family in the sad and difficult time. Love, Linda Linda Baumgarth, March 20, 2008 I had the pleasure of working with Carol over the past several years when I was with Alcatel. She was a joy to be around and will be missed. She fought a courageous battle and is now free of pain. My sincere condolences to her family, and I continue to pray that God will grant you peace and comfort in the days ahead. God Bless Brenda Lovitt Brenda Lovitt, March 19, 2008 I worked with Carol for the last 7 years. Carol was a wonderful person to be around. Always full of life and talking about ther family. She loved to travel and collected those colorful magnetic stick ons from where evey she went or whereever we went as well. She loved her trip to Alaska several years ago. Carol will be sorely missed at work and I am sure with her family , My sincerest sympathies for your loss. Jack Hostetter, March 19, 2008 I've know Carol many years through work. From the start,I could tell she had a wonderful family she was very devoted to. Although we went to different parts of the company, we still would catch up on Erica's latest doings on All My Children. I'll always remember her wonderful laugh & fun personality. I will miss her. God bless her family. Carol Peterson, March 18, 2008 My thoughts are with you at this sad time. Carol was always up for some good fun. We took ice skating lessons together so that we could skate a program. The program never happened but the fun did. May God hold her in the palm of his hand. Mell McNeel, March 18, 2008 Carol was fun to be around - she loved life and loved to laugh. Here's to all the wonderful memories. She will be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Janet Stone, March 18, 2008 Carol was not only a co-worker but a good friend as well.

We know you have faith that your mother is free now of her suffering and pain as she is in the loving bosom of the Lord where she will reside for eternity and await your arrival. God bless all of you. Richard and Marcia Judy, March 15, 2008 Julie and family my thoughts and prayers are with you. My memories of Carol are of a woman who lived a full life. She traveled so many places and took classes and courses on so many things and I think one of my favorite stories she told were of her photography classes and the pictures she had to take. Going downtown trying to take pictures of the parking meters to get a certain angle that was required. This is one of many she shared in our family gatherings as she could keep us laughing and wondering why she liked the class? Anyway, we will miss her greatly and I am so thankful to have known her. Julie, I am sure she is in the beautiful blue castle in heaven she saw and she is at peace! Love You, Kim Kimberly Ann Comeau, March 15, 2008 Julie and Jay - We are so sorry for your loss. "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord "- such comfort in those sweet words. With love-" Kandy and Brian Broderick, March 15, 2008
