Carole was just 11 days short of being 90 years old upon her passing in her hometown of Marion, Illinois, on Aug. 23, 2023.

Carole leaves behind her four children Eric, Christian, Kathy and Kim. She will be dearly missed by them as well as ten grandchildren, one great- grandchild and another on the way!

We love you mamma Carole!
