Carol’s greatest enjoyment came when spending time with her beloved children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.  The memories of those happenings will remain cherished by one and all.

She is further survived by her eight grandchildren: Mark (Michelle) Jacobs, Christea Jacobs (Jeff Roate), Juliana (Bruce) McCrary, Kelly (Kim) Boviall, Vickie (Ed) Karwinski, Tonya (Mark) Westphal, Camille Hammond, and Jacob Hammond (Eric Dormitt);  eleven great grandchildren: Bryan, Megan, Sarah, Madeline, Emily, Justine, Aryanna, Nicholas, Andrew, Joseph, and Sydney and two step great grandchildren: Marisa and Matt; sister-in-law Gloria Nystrom of Delavan WI., and other nieces and nephews, cousins, relatives and friends.  

Carol was preceded in death by her parents; her husband LeRoy in 1946; her sister, Marjorie Tracy; her brother, Willard Rodman; sister-in- law, Esther Rodman; brother-in-law, Wyman Tracy.
