Carol Bentley(1918 - 2013)

Our mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, great and great-great grandmother, sister and Aunt passed away on June 2, 2013. Carol was preceded in death by her husband Albert in 1997, daughter Diane, son Kim, grandson Shawn and great nephew Austin. She is survived by her sister, two nephews, two sons, five granddaughters, two grandsons, three great granddaughters, eleven great grandsons, one great-great granddaughter.
It's quite a legacy for a woman who came from a small family of four and a husband who was the only child in his family to have offspring. She was born in Stockton grew up between there and San Jose. She lived in several other states and territories following her husband from base to base. Albert retired in 1978 and they moved to Magalia, where she continued to work until her early eighties in the retail clothing business. She hated retirement but did find time to be an active member in the Elks, Moose and Eagles here on the Ridge. Some of her friends said she was a good dancer too.
Mom, Nana, Grandma, Aunty Carol will be and is missed. Was and is loved by us all as well as many friends she has here in Northern California.
Her friends at the Eagles are having a celebration of life on July 20, 2013 time approximate 2 p.m.
