I worked with Carol for many years at TIDI Products. She always had a smile and a kind word or two for me. She was a friendly person that touched the lives of many. She will be missed by all those whose lives she touched. Sending prayers for strength and peace for the family.

Carol always had such an infectious smile that everyone who knew her loved. From the looks of this picture she never got any older. Still just as beautiful as in high school. I was one of Carol's classmates in 1975 & her husband was also a friend during high school. It's sad to hear of her passing on to her next life as she will be missed here on earth but she will now be reunited with her child & husband & live a life without pain. Prayers for her family she left behind. Someday you will all be together again when it is your time to journey on for life eternity. God Bless the Gill Family & the Joe & Carol Scroder family as they grieve the loss of the mother & family member❤ Cindy Gillespie, Appleton East class of 1975 classmate & friend living in Florida since 1985. ❤
