|Let the memory of Carole Ann be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Carole Ann Rodriguez, 75, born on August 13, 1938 and passed away on July 12, 2014. We will remember her forever.
"I miss my sister everyday. I know she is doing fine in heaven just wish I could talk with her once again.
Thinking of all the family too."
"I miss my best friend every day. I think in the morning...I have to call Carole Ann and then remember I can't. Miss her so very much. Thinking of Joe and all the family...my thoughts are with you all."
"I am so sorry that I will no longer have the presence of Carole Ann in my life. She had become my new best friend since reconnecting last fall.
Back in the day, she was known as Carole and we went to elementary school together and occasionally played together in our homes. We lived about 3 blocks from one another. Then their family moved away.
In fifth grade we walked home from school together and were saying our goodbyes on the corner when Carole told me the upsetting news that her mother was pregnant. What, how could that be? My goodness, her mother was over 30! Carole was not happy. Recently she told me she refused to go to the hospital to see this new baby brother. When he was brought home, she said she did a 180 degree turn and has loved him very much since.
What Carole particularly remembered about me was that my cat, Tuggy, had her kittens in my mother's closet. Tuggy was an outdoor cat and how did she get into the house? That time it was my mother who was the unhappy one about the cat's delivery.
Last summer I went to Maquoketa and met former Delmar classmates of Carole Ann. They put Carole and me together after not seeing one another since elementary days. It turned out that Carole Ann and Joe only lived a couple of miles from me in Texas.
I will truly miss Carole Ann. You have my deepest sympathy. She was so very special.

"I am so saddened by the loss of such a wonderful lady. I will always have fond memories of visits to Carole Ann and Joe's home and watching our dogs play together while we sat at the kitchen table. My deepest sympathies to you all."
"I am so very sorry for your loss. I had the privilege of meeting Carole Ann when she stopped by the office with Mr. Rodriguez. She was so gracious and full of light. May God wrap you in His arms and comfort you during this difficult time. Audrianne Schneider - Colleyville, TX"
"Joe, Jill, Kerry and family, we were saddened to learn that Carole Ann passed away suddenly this past week. We have all of you in our thoughts and prayers. I was fortunate to have had dinner with Carole Ann and our relocation family earlier this year. She was smiling and happy to see everyone as always and we will truly miss her. I have many wonderful memories that I will cherish forever. One of them being her great cooking! My sincere condolences, Mark Rabe and family."
"Carole Ann, I miss you so much already!! I will miss our long talks around our kitchen tables, Also enjoyed volunteering with you at Baylor Carrollton. You always had a smile for everyone coming in the door. Don't know how I'm going to manage without you there beside me. It's going to take a while for me to get used to not seeing you at my backdoor. You were my very dear, sweet friend."
"Carole Ann was an awesome friend. We worked together for many years, and I got to know her well and we had some great times together. Work can be hard (that's why it's called work), but we managed to have a good time. Carole Ann was always like the energizer bunny. She never slowed down. Even when she retired, instead of being lazy (like me), she did lots of volunteer work and stayed as busy as she had been while working. After retirement, we had a large group who continued meeting for lunch and happy hour, which was so much fun. When my husband was losing his battle with cancer, Carole Ann was very supportive of us through words and prayers and kindness. She spent a day with me at the hospital while I was needing support, and lifted us up many times. My heart is broken for Joe and family and I think she left us too soon. She was loved and will be missed.
Carole Ann, I love you, and be sure to say hi to Mr. Gary Wiley in heaven!"
"Bless Carol forever, has she did Joe and all her children, I was aware of Carol's beauty and charm from the first time we met and through her daughter Jill, it became more and more evident.
It is so sad to know that Carol is gone, our loss, but we will always be able to remember her loving kindness by the children she has left behind.
I will pray for the entire family during this period of very deep grief and very large loss, so so sorry."
"Kevin, Kim, Kara, Kyle, Joe, and family. As you kow, having my mother pass away very unexpectedly several years ago, I understand what you are going through and how you're feeling. Life works in strange ways; ways that we will never understand. We ask so many questions to ourselves - why? Why her?, why now?, why this way? Only God knows all of those answers. After my mother passed away, I truely believe that everything happens for a reason, and I am not afraid to die because I know she will be there waiting for me. I miss you and love all of you. Rick, Zack, and Morgan are all thinking about you."
"Kevin and family. So sorry to hear of your great loss. You will stay in our thoughts and prayers. I have been to Baylor in Plano a multitude of times in the past before my mother's passing and no doubt at some point saw your mother there without realizing. My sincere condolences, Tami (Miller) Fischer - Dallas, TX"
