So sorry to hear of the passing of Carole. She was a very kind person. I remember her care when I had my children at the Paulding Hospital many years ago. She was a compassionate and highly skilled in her area. She will be missed. Heaven has another angel.

We are so thankful to God to have had the blessing of knowing Carole.  She had a special gift of making people feel loved. She brightened our lives and made us laugh.  She loves her children and grandchildren and everyone elses children!  I can't wait to see her again in Eternity.  Thank you Carole for being such a beautiful soul! We love you and will miss you!

To the Overmyer family,
I can not begin to tell you how saddened I am to hear of my dear friend Carole's passing. We have been friends since 1960 when we met at Riverside White Cross school of nursing. She would come home with me to our farm and we would go horseback riding. John and I came to visit she and Jim on their farm when Carole was expecting Wade and our Mark was a toddler. Over the years we have kept in contact and attended our class reunions in Columbus. I will miss her terribly they will not be the same now that she is gone.

So sorry to learn of Carol's passing.  I graduated from nursing school with her.  She lived across the hall from me. Her laugh was distinctive and always made me smile.  I am so glad that I got to see her at the 50th reunion.  I send my condolences to Jim, children, grandchildren and many   friends.   She will be greatly missed.

She was the best as a sister and friend. We had discussions of God, the Bible and the remaining meaningless problems of the world. Our last discussion was of Revelations of which she had just completed an eight week course. Rest in your well deserved peace sis.

I am grieved to hear of Carole's passing.  She will certainly be missed.  My memories of her are that she was always cheerful and full of life.  I will not be able to attend the service or visitation, but my thoughts and prayers are with all of her family.

Joanne Overmyer Haynes Sep 26 2014 12:00 AM

Of all the people I know Carole was, to me, the most indestructable. It's hard to hear of her passing.  But I can see her in heaven taking care of all the newborns.  Steve and I always admired her.  Her family was blessed.  The whole community was blessed to have Carole touch so many lives.

Our deepest sympathies to your family, Carole will be missed by all. Todd and Carla Benschneider

My eyes are full of tears as I try to summarize all that Carole meant to my entire family.  She had so many skills and gifts:  musician, seamstress, mentor, 4-H advisor and the list goes on and on . . . most of all she was a Christian woman who loved her family wholeheartedly and would give her last dime to anyone.  Jim and family - - - you will cherish her memory and miss her always, as will all of her friends, acquaintances and any one else fortunate enough to have spoken with her.
