My memories take me back to childhood days. Growing up in Mt. Greenwood Reformed Church, I remember many shared times with Karen, Carol, Barbara and Paul. My parents knew your parents. Sunday School classes. Choir rehearsals and singing in church, Catchesism classes, so many wonderful memories. And David was the same age as my brother Ken and their stories. I am sorry for your loss and sending all of you our loving thoughts and sympathy.
In Sympathy,
Linda (Dado) and Robert Richcreek
Orlando, Florida

We were so sad to hear of Carol's death. She was one of the kindest persons we have ever known. The world will be a lesser place without her in it. Jan and Rich Tiggelaar

My condolences to Carol's family. I worked with her in the 80's at Chicago Heights and she was my boss later at Olympia Fields. She was a smart and dedicated. She will be missed by many.

My sympathy to Carol's family! I knew her through the Safety Committee at Alverno. She was a great leader and teacher. She will be greatly missed!
