Carol was very close to all the surviving family: Gambers, Sheltons, Windsors and the Bowlings. Too many names to list, but she loved them all! Carol worked for Gabbert and Son Cleaning Service for 25 years. She loved the outdoors and working in her yard. She liked feeding the birds and squirrels in her back yard. She was a very giving person and was always trying to help others.
Cremation rites have been accorded. There will be a Celebration of Life at a later date. Cremation Specialist of Central Illinois is assisting the family.
