She went on to earn a B.A. from Michigan State University and a M.Ed from Oakland University. Carole taught at Genesee Schools for over 30 years and always held the school, teachers, and students close to her heart. She loved keeping up with friends and former students and would do so regularly. Carole had a life-long passion for shopping and chocolate. Carole enjoyed golfing and reading and turned both into clubs with her dear friends. Her absolute favorite role was as Grammie Carole and she spent much of her retirement traveling to Illinois and Saskatchewan to visit her grandkids and clean Kristen's house. Carole was always up for an adventure, be it an MSU tailgate and football game, a live concert with the girls or traveling with her friends and family. Surviving are her devoted husband, Michael of Grand Blanc; children, Kimberly (Joby) Messier of Wilcox, Saskatchewan, Matthew (Laura Jarrett) Krellwitz of Grand Blanc, and Kristen (Dan) Longpre of Skokie, IL; grandchildren Max, Ashley, Benjamin, and Rowan. She leaves behind precious cousins, nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews and her beloved Aunt Jean Halik. She also leaves behind her shitzu, Gizmo. Carole was preceded in death by her brother, Robert Sochor and her parents. Your condolences may be shared with the family at swartzfuneralhomeinc.com
