Carol’s health challenges began in 2007 when a surgery did not end well. Carol began to recover in 2009/2010 and gradually became stronger. In 2012 our family noticed differences in mom’s behavior, unfortunately Alzheimer’s disease was evident and eventually mom broke her hip, requiring hip surgery and at that point the doctor stated mom needed 24 hour care. Mom spent 4 years in a single family home with up to 5 other residents and was able to maintain her sense of humor and she always smiled. April 15, 2019, mom had a stroke and while she fought hard to overcome the challenges, she was unable to recover. Mom died on May 20, 2019. On May 30, 2019, the celebration of mom’s life at Mariners Church, and the final resting place, Pacific View Memorial Park, then a party with food, beverages and a lot of love ended the day.
