Carol was an avid gardener and love to cook. According to her family, it didn’t matter what she made, you knew it was going to be delicious. She also enjoyed a good meal and something the kids got a kick out of, she tried to chew her food 25 times, apparently something she was taught growing up. Carol treasured her family and the time spent with them. Her greatest wish was for everyone to be happy. Twelve days prior to her death was her 86th birthday and in a couple of weeks, she and Jim would have celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary. Her children admired their relationship as they shared a love like no other.
Carol is survived by her husband Jim; daughters Peggy (Guy) Folkman of Batesville, Anne (Paul) Kane Tecumseh, Michigan, Ellen Kane of Bethel Park, Pennsylvania; sons Todd (Jeanette) Firsich of North Vernon, Indiana, Scott (Holly) Firsich of Pickerington, Ohio; brothers Tony and Tom Johnson of Batesville; grandchildren Matt, Ben, Emily, Tyler, Molly, Linzi, Jessica, Joe, Kristen, Zach, Bret, Abby, Alli and great grandchildren Owen, Chloie, Anna, Dallas, Colton, Nolan, Liam, Lena, Eleanor Maddie and Lilly.
