Welcome to our Caring Bridge site!  We've created it to keep family, church
family, friends and other loved ones updated on Carol’s journey. We appreciate
your prayers, support and words of hope during this time when it matters most!  Carol
Pyfer was an invaluable member of the Travis Middle School Faculty and Staff
from August of 1980 when she accepted the position as the Counselor’s
Secretary.  During her thirty-two years
with Travis Middle School, Carol took on the additional responsibility of
receptionist and later became the Principal’s Secretary in 1996. The Pyfer
family has always shown an enduring commitment to the Irving community and the
Irving Independent School District as Carol’s husband Wes served as the
Defensive Coordinator for the Nimitz High School Football team and her
children, Darren and Dana, are graduates of Nimitz High School.  Carol always exhibited professionalism and
courtesy as she performed her duties with faithfulness and beyond expectation,
possessing a true spirit of volunteerism, a willingness to assist students,
teachers, parents, and all visitors to Travis Middle School, and has served as
a model to all. Upon Carol’s retirement, Travis Middle School affirmed the
initiation of the Carol Pyfer Student Service Award that has and will
henceforth be awarded each spring at the Eighth Grade Award Ceremony to an
eighth grade student who exhibits a dedication to academics and citizenship
while exemplifying the qualities and characteristics set forth by Carol.  Wes and Carol reside in Irving, Texas.  They are active members at Oak View Baptist
Church, where Carol has served in teaching as well as coordinating several
women’s events. 

In July of 2016, Carol was diagnosed with hepatocellular
carcinoma (liver cancer). Fast forwarding, to this week, October 2016, Carol
has been moved to hospice care.  The
liver cancer is terminal and the end is near. In her own words, she knows she
is in God’s plan and she is following his direction for the remainder of the
days. She has asked that we please keep praying so she will have the strength
to do his will.
