Condolences for the family of “Carol Eber”

Condolence from Lavance Cahill and Abby Kekel on February 25th, 2018 10:59 am

Carol and John were good friends to Will and Lavance cahill for many years. We will always remember her laughter and her hospitality. I remember when we used to have gatherings at the house on ford rd. and when John worked at General Electric with Bob Clarke and my dad and we all used to hang out at the GE picnics.

Condolence from Eric Eber on March 2nd, 2018 9:32 pm

Thanks Abby, those were fun memories at GE

Condolence from Martha Flemming on February 25th, 2018 2:47 pm

We are so saddened to hear of Carol’s passing. She has been a member of the Wednesday morning Bible Study at our church for a long time, and she will be sorely missed by our members. She was intelligent, compassionate, and always insightful into the material that we studied, with much to add to our conversation. We will remember her fondly and also hold in mind that she is now with the Savior Whom she loved so much.

Condolence from Janet Siebarth (Carol’s daughter) on February 26th, 2018 11:19 am

thank you for your kind words. She loved that Bible Study group and would tell me all about it on our Wednesday night phone call. Thank you for walking her journey with her…

I am grateful to have known and worked alongside Carol Eber in the compassionate philanthropic work of the Mayfield Women’s Club. She was a constant force for good, always positive, always gracious and kind, leading us to be more, to do more for our community and for those in need.

Until we meet again, Good and Faithful Servant! Thank you for your great love and caring.

Condolence from Jodie Bookshar Kapostasy on February 27th, 2018 5:30 am

Jan,
You occasionally babysat for me and my brother. I am so sorry to hear of your family’s loss. Your mom was my preschool teacher at Lyndhurst Co-op. SHE was what made that first school experience so fun! I have wonderful memories of it.

There aren’t many people in her “class” of life. She was an absolute gem.

Condolence from Janet Eber Siebarth on March 1st, 2018 5:17 pm

I remember you and your brother. I think he is Jessie? Thank you for your kind words.

Condolence from Jan and Frank Gabbert on February 28th, 2018 10:55 am

Jan and family – Carol was so special to us in so many ways. She has a favorite place in our memories because she was always a great friend and fellow traveler. Our times together were filled with laughter and fun which will always be with us.

Condolence from Eric Eber on March 2nd, 2018 9:34 pm

Thanks Aunt Jan and Uncle Frank – so many happy memories over the years!

Condolence from Dick & Natalie Herrick on February 28th, 2018 2:26 pm

To Janer & Eric.
Our sincere condolences to you and your families. Carol was a loving and caring mother, grandmother and friend to all. We shared many meaningful times in Ohio and Arizona, memories that bring us smiles.
Our hearts and thoughts are with you during this time of grieving. Please know that you are not alone in remembering a truly wonderful person that meant so much to many.
Dick & Natalie Herrick. Phoenix Arizona

Condolence from Sharon Clarke Mullins on March 3rd, 2018 7:39 pm

We are so sorry for the loss of Carol. She was like a second “mom” to me and “grandma” to my kids. Carol was a gem. She had a strong faith and was a lifelong learner and educator. I learned new things from her even on my last visit this past September. She was fun, smart, sweet, funny, and a true example of living like Christ. My mom and Carol were so close…now they are together. They used to both say “Let the Good Times Roll.” That was their “thing.” It is hard in this time of sadness to think about that, but in heaven, they will do that with God and the others.
I am so sorry for your loss, Jan and Eric and families! You are all in my constant thoughts and prayers. Xxxooo
