Words cannot express the loss we feel on the loss of this very special lady. We have lots of wonderful memories and know she is in a heavenly place free to walk and dance. Have a yellow bird on us. Love you!

Sympathies to Carol’s large family. She was a presence in my parents’ as well as my life as a good neighbor (and occasional babysitter for me) for decades. Gipp Road won’t be the same.
We will always love you. You were one of the kindest, most gentle souls to walk this earth. You will be deeply missed. Say hi to my dad up there for me <3
My thoughts and prayers are with you Heather, Theresa and your entire family. I hope you can feel the love being sent your way. And know that your mom will be with you always. xo
Carol’s passing is a real loss for those of us in the Helderview Garden Club who have known her for years. She contributed much to the Club, including holding administrative duties as secretary. I will miss her friendly smile and her wit.

Ted & Heather – We were so sorry to read of Carol’s passing. She always had such a friendly, happy and warm personality so full of life. May God bless you and the rest of your family, and may He bring you peace in the days to come. With our deepest sympathy for your great loss.
I was shocked to read Carol’s obit. I last saw her at our X-mas party for the Helderview Garden Club. She and Joyce were members for as long as I’ve been a member and she was always a hard worker, served as an officer several times, had a great sense of humor and had much to share with us of her gardening knowledge. May she rest in peace! We will all miss her.
My heart and prayers go out to the family.
I was saddened to learn of the passing of Carol. I am glad I had the opportunity to stop and talk to Carol and Ted at Brueggers. She will be missed.

We spent almost 20 years around Carol. She took us in as new members of the fire department and the rest is history! We spent many hours chatting it up about life, love, and kids! She will be terribly missed. Sending our love and prayers to the entire LaMountain family. She was an outstanding lady!
