Carol was born January 27, 1945, in Darke County to the late Harry and Mildred Pearson. She took great pride in her family and Darke County community. Through her years in Darke, Miami and Montgomery counties, she was an avid supporter of local high school athletics and activities. She passionately cheered on her daughters, nieces and nephews in their athletic and academic pursuits.
She was a committed employee of Miami Valley Hospital for nearly two decades where she last managed the Accounts Payable Department. She also formerly worked at Hazco in Dayton and Hobart in Troy.
Carol is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law, Jackie and Harold Hardwick of Columbia, SC and Christy and Louis Goldner of Cincinnati; grandchildren, Brandon and Kyle Hardwick and Isaac and Eliana Goldner; sisters Nancy (Pete) Hemer of Greenville, Judy (Doug) Baker of Greenville, Sandy (Mike) McClurg of Versailles, Linda Rentschler of Dayton and brother Mike (Rosie) Pearson of Versailles; 14 nieces and nephews and 19 great-nieces and great-nephews.
A memorial service will be held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Greenville, Ohio, on Saturday, November 24, 2012, 2 p.m., with The Very Rev’d R. James Larsen officiating.
