Carol Pontones

Carol Pontones
age 73, of Westerville, Ohio, died March 13, 2014, after living with breast cancer for over 27 years.  She was especially grateful to Dr. Bertha Bouroncle who was her first oncologist.  This doctor gave Carol hope for a longer future, which in turn allowed her to enjoy life with her granddaughter. Born March 3, 1941, Carol was the daughter of the late Lawrence and Ethel Lucas of Magnolia, Ohio.  She also had a brother, Rodney, who died at the age of 26. Carol attended Mt. Union College in Alliance, Ohio, and The Ohio State University.  Since her dad graduated from OSU in the 1930s, she became a "rabid" Buckeye fan her entire life. She was a gardner, modern electronics fan and an enthusiastic traveler, who enjoyed seeing the USA and our National Parks.  She was a community volunteer, missionary, and enjoyed teaching piano lessons to many students for over 25 years.  Carol had a positive and joyful attitude towards life.
She is survived by her husband of almost 49 years, John; daughter, Elaine (Brian) Davis; granddaughter, Kerilyn; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Carol donated her body to The Ohio State University.  Memorial service will be held at MORELAND FUNERAL HOME, 55 E. Schrock Road, Westerville, Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 2:30 p.m., Pastor Bud Leskovac, officiating.
