1931 - 2018 Obituary Condolences
CAROL F. SLACK April 15, 1931 - December 17, 2018. Carol was born in San Jose, CA to Carlyle and June Freyschlag, and grew up on a fish hatchery in Elk Grove, CA with her 3 sisters Martha, Virginia and Joan. She majored in History at UC Berkeley in the early 50s. After college, she became an airline stewardess for United Airlines, honored to be on board their first passenger jet flight from New York to Los Angeles, and very much enjoyed her flights to Hawaii. In 1960 she married Thomas Freeman Slack, settled in Eureka, and had 3 children: Ann Marie (Steve), Mark Thomas, and Paul Freeman. Carol and Tom were married until his passing in 2007. Carol moved to Fortuna with her new puppy Tricksy in 2008 and renewed her love for world travel until she moved to Memory Care in La Jolla, CA in October of last year. Carol was beloved by her children and her many caregivers in Fortuna and La Jolla. She greeted everyone with smiles, was full of grace and gratitude, and always up for a new adventure - of them all, she particularly enjoyed swimming with dolphins. She is survived by her 3 children, 4 grandchildren, 1 sister, and many nieces and nephews. If you would like to make a donation in Carol's memory, please consider your favorite local non-profit or the Humboldt Area Foundation.
