Carol Ann Stengel-Peoples of Emmaus, beloved daughter, sister, and friend, passed away unexpectedly on March 5, 2016, at the age of 43. Words cannot express how much she will be missed by her family, friends, and colleagues. Vibrant and creative, Carol pursued many passions including a deep love of the Spanish language and culture, watercolor painting and other art, flamenco dancing, reading, and hiking with her cherished Goldendoodle, Rubi. Carol's entrepreneurial spirit enabled her to turn many of these passions into profitable business ventures that she owned and operated, including Pachacuti, LLC, a fair trade jewelry and gifts retail operation, and Carolina Miro Translation and Interpreter Services, LLC. Her zest for all things Spanish also led her to such destinations as Spain, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia, and Mexico, where she enthusiastically immersed herself in the language and culture and cultivated many lifelong friendships. Services: Carol's life will be celebrated on Tuesday, March 15, 2016. Friends are invited to visit with her family from 10 to 11 am at Linwood W. Ott Funeral Home, Inc., 111 North Reading Ave. Boyertown. The memorial service will commence at 11 am. A graveside service will follow at Fairview Cemetery, 317 W. Philadelphia Avenue, Boyertown. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a scholarship established in her name. Checks can be made payable to the Carol A. Stengel Spanish Scholarship, Boyertown Area School District, 911 Montgomery Avenue, Boyertown, PA 19512. Online condolences may be made at www.lwottfuneralhome.com
