Carolyn Dorothy Van Sickle Obituary
Carolyn Dorothy Van Sickle 92, died Tuesday, September 8, 2015 at Drews Place in Coldwater, Michigan. A funeral will be held at 1 PM on Friday, September 11, 2015 at the Union City United Methodist Church, 200 Ellen Street, with the Revs. Cynthia Veilleux and Rob Hughes officiating. Visitation will be from 5-8 PM Thursday, September 10, 2015 at Lighthouse Funeral and Cremation, three miles east of M-66, on M-60, in Union City. Carolyn was born February 13, 1923 in Battle Creek, Michigan, the daughter of Roscoe D. and Gladys "Doris" (Rouse) Casper. She graduated from Union City High School in 1941 and attended Elkhart Business School. Although primarily a homemaker, she worked as a nurse's aide, at a fiberglass manufacturing facility, and doing secretarial and data entry work. Carolyn lived in the area until 1953. Married life took her to other states, including Indiana, Ohio, Colorado and Florida, before returning to Michigan four years ago. In her leisure, Carolyn enjoyed league bowling in Hastings, dancing at Burnham Brook Center in Battle Creek, and playing games, putting together puzzles and fishing. She will be remembered for being compassionate, funny and a lover of ice cream. Carolyn is survived by her children, Jackie Myers of Union City, Janet (Philip) Gasper of Hastings and Marc (Christy) Hendrick of Coldwater; former daughter-in-law Eddis Szudzik of Middleville; and grandchildren Stephanie Myers, Scott Myers, Mike Davis, Mickey Davis, Shawn Davis, Carrie Nurenberg, Shelley Hendrick, Joe Hendrick, Laura Pickett, Justin Hendrick, Brittany Hendrick and Cameron Hendrick; 15 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband, Clayton I. VanSickle; her son, Wayne Hendrick, in 1989; and an infant grandson, Patrick, as well as her previous husbands, including her children's father, Ray Hendrick.
