1956 - 2012
Carol Ann (Creighton) Henderson-Fricke, 56, of Saugus CA, passed away Tuesday July 24, 2012 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
She was born on March 17, 1956 in Cambridge Maryland to Betty Lee (Ward) Riggen and Horace Eugene Creighton.
Carol's patience and genuine care for others made her the successful loving day care provider she was to many Santa Clarita kids for thirty years. Carol enjoyed camping, stitching, sewing, spending hours with her husband Jim on their motorcycle, being with family, eating anything chocolate and spending time with her precious grandkids, Savanah and Carson.
She is survived by her husband Jim Fricke: children: Jeff Smith, Janell Rae (Henderson) Huberman, Lyle Fricke, Allison (Fricke) Kellogg, Monique Fricke, Garret Fricke; grandchildren: Savanah Smith and Carson Lee Huberman; brother Jimmy Creighton.
