Obituary for Carol Lynn Stafford

Carol died on Sunday morning June 19th after fighting kidney disease and diabetes for several years. Carol stopped breathing, and was not able to be rescessitated. Carol was the daughter of Stanley and Bonnie Tuttle and was born in Plymouth Indiana on January 11th, 1950. Carol attended some college and raised three children by herself working various jobs to care for them. These jobs varied from hotel and restaurant hospitality to factory work. She often worked several jobs at once to care for her children.

She loved the Arizona desert climate and moved her family to Phoenix to help with her Asthma. Carol spent the rest of her life in the valley, often going back to visit family in Indiana.

Carol always brought joy to everyone she came in contact with. She spent several years donating her time to others, as well as spending time with her family. Carol enjoyed this so much that she went through training to be a clown and donated her time bringing children and others joy. Carol was a devoted Christian and went to church every Sunday to share her faith with others. Even when she got ill, and was put into a long term care facility, she still made it a point to attend Sunday service.

Carol enjoyed painting and drawing and some of her paintings of the Arizona desert hang in her living room still. She passed on some of her artistic talents to her children and grandchildren, many of which are also artistic or have musical talents.

Carol is survived by her three children, Cinthia, Christopher and Timothy. Carol had four grandchildren, Erica and Sara, both daughters of Cinthia. And Jade and Caleb, daughter and son of Timothy. Carol was also blessed to have two great Grandchildren, Puella and Joesph, daughter and son of Erica. Carol is also survived by her father Stanley and sisters Lisa and Laura.

Beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Daughter and sister, this Amazing, loving, creative woman will be greatly missed, but will be kept close in all of her loved ones hearts.

The family would like to celebrate her life as she did and bring joy to others as she so much enjoyed doing
