Carole loved everyone–her family, friends, and animals most of all. She loved all moments that brought people together: home cooked meals she lovingly prepared, football games, Christmas time, family gatherings, and summer and winter breaks when her granddaughters would come to stay. She had several lifelong friends, never met a stranger, and brightened up a room with her caring nature. Carole was a true lover of music and especially appreciated the emotional depths of opera and classical music. She will be dearly missed.
Our deepest sympathies go out to all that knew & loved Carole. She will always be remembered for her bright smile, infectious laugh & big hugs. May the years of cherished memories bring some comfort & peace during this difficult time. Sending our love, and keeping you all in our thoughts & prayers.
Carole was like a mom to me. When I needed someone the most, she was there. When I would take her to the doctor, store or a restaurant, from the doctor to the waitress, they would love to see her. She always had a compliment to give. I enjoyed going to her home and hearing about all the stories she had to tell. She was a bright light to all that had the opportunity to meet her. She loved all her family. I will dearly miss her. I’m so thankful to have known and loved her.
I will miss you sweet sweet Carole! I will miss our long talks in person and on the phone, but will cherish the memories of our talks and our gut belly laughs. ❤ RIP sweet lady!
Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family.
We have lost a shining star! Aunt Carole brightened very person and animals life she came in contact with. She loved everyone.
I always called her Aunt, I dont know how that started, but it was always true. She even adopted Casey as a grandchild. One day she came to visit and Casey meet her at the door (she was around 3) and immediately asked her are you my Grandma? Aunt Carole swooped her up and said yes. From that day forward she was Grandma Fisher. We all Loved her and Uncle Bob (Grandpa Fisher) So Much. She will be Truely Missed.
I know my Mom and Aunt Carole are reunited in Heaven! What a celebration they are having!
