Carole A. Levis, 73, DuBois, passed away Wednesday, May 25, 2016, at Penn Highlands DuBois after a lengthy battle with Multiple Myeloma cancer.
Born April 8, 1943, in Reynoldsville, she was the daughter of the late Francis A. and Nora A. (Bukouski) Gunns.
Carole is survived by her two children, Deborah Stoneberg of Hershey, Pa., and Collin "Kelly" (Debra) Stoneberg Jr. of North Huntingdon, Pa.; two grandchildren, Jeremy Taylor and Sarah Stoneberg; a sister, Kathleen Hasselback of DuBois, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
She was previously married to C. Kelly Stoneberg Sr. who survives, and then to the late Tom Levis.
She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and a brother, Robert F. Gunns.
Carole graduated from Reynoldsville High School in 1961 and then from the PA Academy of Cosmetology. She retired from the purchasing department at Brockway Glass and was the previous owner of Compliments Hair Design. She was also employed in banking and finance, at the DuBois Senior Center, and was a caregiver to many children. Carole was a caregiver and buddy to Kaelee Ross and a nanny to her sisters, Darian and Danessa, for many years.

She previously served on the Brockway 4th of July committee, was a board member for the American Red Cross, was a member of the PA Cosmetology Association and First United Methodist Church, and donated her time to the American Cancer Society. She ordered and styled wigs for cancer patients for many years, was a support for many cancer patients in their homes or her home, and was affiliated with the Relay for Life for many years. She was an avid reader.
She was an advocate for Multiple Myeloma as well as other cancers. She was associated with the International Myeloma Association and started a support group for this particular type of cancer. She was a Multiple Myeloma Ambassador for Millenium Pharmaceutical Company and traveled throughout the U.S. as a motivational speaker for those with Myeloma. She was featured in many articles dealing with the education of Multiple Myeloma, the treatments, and the fight for improved rights for cancer patients. Her advocacy led her to Harrisburg where she lobbied for an oral chemotherapy bill.
She loved spending time with her family and grandchildren. Carole hosted cousin reunions and get-togethers, and she enjoyed spending time with her friends. The light of her life was her children and grandchildren. Her outlook on life was to always pay forward her blessings. Before her passing, Carole said, "If I was able to touch your life, I thank you. That is all I ever wanted to do with my life."
A service of remembrance will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 4, at the First United Methodist Church in DuBois with the Rev. Lance Tucker and the Rev. David Nagele officiating. There will be no public visitation. Interment will be in St. Joseph's Cemetery at 10 a.m. Saturday; friends and family are welcome.
