Grosse Pointe Farms - Carol Lynn Saunders O'Neill, 69, of Grosse Pointe passed away Friday, March 15, 2019, at her beautiful home on the lake surrounded by her loving family. Carol will be remembered as a dutiful nurse, a green-thumbed gardener, a vivacious fashionista, but most of all as a devoted wife and mother, continuously exuding unconditional love for her family. She is survived by her husband of 46 years, William, and their children Brian (Kristin), Kate (Michael), Julie (Rob), and Molly (Rob), and a growing group of grandchildren including Gabriel, Lucas, Evelyn, and Ellis.
