She was preceded in death by her parents, Bill and Elsie Webb of Streator, Ill.; and several siblings.
Carol is survived by her husband, Jim, of 55 years; daughters, Carrie Thompson (Bill) of Cedar Rapids and Jamie Rogers (Jason) of Cedar Rapids; and five grandchildren, Nick (Shannon), Logan and Josie Thompson and Megan and Jack Rogers; and two siblings, Marge Sullivan of Ottawa, Ill., and Jim Webb of Fort Worth, Texas.
Carol graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in middle school education. She taught for a couple of years and then became a full-time homemaker, a very devoted wife and mother. She also taught sewing at Kirkwood Community College and did interior decorating.
Her passion in life was spending time with her family. She loved to walk, do day trips, go antiquing and to garage sales, patronizing the library, gardening and spending time at Lake Delhi. She loved playing with the grandchildren and being silly. Her philosophy was you had to be a little naughty to have fun. She loved children and talking with the elderly. She was a kid magnet. Kids knew she liked them. Carol forever will be remembered as a wonderful and caring wife, mother and "grammy" and someone who loved children.
