Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.

With profound sadness we announce the passing of Carol, our loving and devoted mother, and friend to all whose lives she touched, on Friday, March 4th, 2022.

She left us peacefully at her daughter’s residence in Caledonia, MI. She was in her 80th year.

She met her loving husband Gary Brown, who came as a package deal with three blessings: Keenan, Kelleigh and Kevin. They were married in Dearborn Heights in 1969.

She was the beloved mother of Keenan (Janine), Kelleigh, Kevin (Cindy), Kristen (Roland) and Kraig (Cassandra), proud grandmother of Jennifer, Ryan, Cari, Tyler, Madison, Nate, Tori, Lyric, River, Gabrielle, Andrew, Olivia and great-grandmother to three.

Predeceased by her devoted husband Gary, daughter Kelleigh, sisters Betty and Joanie and brother Bill.

Carol lived a full life as a wonderful mother, grandmother, homemaker and worker in the school system and real estate.

She loved to sew, kept an immaculate house, was highly skilled with crafts, decorating and enjoyed spending hours upon hours at fabric stores.

Most of all she loved her family. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

A celebration of Carol’s life will be held at Michigan Memorial Cemetery, 32163 W Huron River Dr, Flat Rock, MI 48134. Date to be determined.

    Carol was a very sweet loving person who missed her Husband terribly! Now she is in his arms with the biggest smile, but it seems to be that someone left her only living sister out that she loved so much, Best friends. Shame on you!
