Carol grew up in Chicago during the depression and wartime years. As the years passed, she loved to tell stories of her childhood in that era. She attended the well-known high school New Trier where classmates included Charlton Heston and Rock Hudson. Carol was employed as a bookkeeper, and she also worked in a bank and a floral shop.

Carol’s values included emphasis on family, education, concern for others, humor and humility.

Carol is survived by a son, Jeremy Lytle, of the home, and a daughter, Jackie Gonzalez and her husband, Nelson of Miami, FL and her grandchildren, Eric and Allyson Gonzalez, as well as many nieces and a nephew.
