Traverse City Record-Eagle

---- — CADILLAC — Carol Jane Carlson, age 54, of Cadillac, lost her six-week battle with cancer, fought every step of the way and gained her place in heaven on Feb. 4, 2014, at Munson Medical Center.

Carol had high work ethics and expected the same from whomever she worked for. She found this at Williams Chevrolet and Kia in Traverse City, where she managed the internet sales for the Kia division. She had great love for her employers and work associates, George and Bea Chichester, Randy Gage, Don Schreiber, Claudia Daniels, Monica Fasel and the many other associates with whom she worked. She never missed work no matter what the weather was.

Carol leaves behind her mother, Eleanor J. Carlson, of Cadillac; a brother, Carl (Caroline) Carlson, of Lake City; and special nieces and nephews, Amy and Travis Siwula, of Hopkins, Minn., and Anna Carlson, of Lake City. Many other relatives also survive.

Visitation will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday at the Burkholder Family Funeral Home, 211 N. Pine St., McBain, MI; (231) 825-8191. Due to the weather the funeral service will be held in the spring at the First Covenant Church in Cadillac with burial in the Old Jennings Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to the First Covenant Church, Cadillac, or the Humane Society.
