Her parents, Donald and Irene Strickler preceded her in death.

Carol grew up on a farm in Grundy Center where she loved spending time with her father walking the bean fields and taming kittens she found while working on the farm.

Carol had a great love of nature and the outdoors because of her fond memories of growing up on the farm. Her greatest joy was raising her four children and supporting them in any of their musical or theatrical endeavors. Carol was a kind and generous friend who enjoyed taking walks and sharing stories.

There will be a funeral service at 1 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 27 at the United Methodist Church in Grundy Center with a fellowship to follow.
