Carol A. Rogers
MONTVILLE TWP. – Carol A. (nee Kuehn) Rogers, age 69, of Montville Township, amazing wife and wonderful mother and grandmother, passed away on Oct. 7, 2021. She was surrounded by her family as she ended her 20-month battle with glioblastoma brain cancer.
Born on Oct. 28, 1951, to Jean and Daniel Kuehn, Carol was raised in Thompson Township, where she graduated from Ledgemont High School in 1970 after playing sports and cheerleading.
She married her high school sweetheart, Gary, on June 15, 1974, and began raising her two children, Todd and Kristal, a few years later. She helped her husband take care of their small farm in Montville, raising horses, cows and pigs, and worked hard helping to plant crops and bale hay. They built their dream log home together.
Carol worked at Heather Hill before she took time off to raise her children. She returned to work at Ledgemont Schools, her favorite position being the kindergarten aide, and retired after 20 years.
Carol loved to travel, having been to almost all states and national parks, including Alaska, Hawaii and a mother/daughter trip to Italy. She traveled to many NASCAR races and enjoyed Indians games with family and friends.
Favorite summer activities included camping, hiking, bicycling, gardening and picnics with extended family. In winter, holiday gatherings were looked forward to as she was a great cook and baker.
WInter activities also included walks through the woods, watching and feeding the birds, sewing and snowmobiling trips to surrounding states and Canada, including two trips to West Yellowstone, Mont.
Carol is survived by her husband, Gary; son, Todd (Jessica); daughter, Kristal (Lance); grandchildren, Keira, AJ, Kyler and Logan; brother, John (Carol); sister, Denise (Joe); and several nieces and nephews.
She is preceded in death by her parents.
A celebration of her life will be held in the future.
Carol donated her body for the advancement of medical science.
Contributions can be made in her name to the Hospice of the Western Reserve, or American Brain Tumor Association online at bit.ly/DonateABTA.
Carol was one-of-a-kind, fun loving and always smiling, caring and tender — all 4 feet, 10 inches of her. She was the bright light of her family and will be deeply missed beyond words, especially by her grandchildren, who were the loves of her life.
The family suggests you plant some flowers, feed the birds and remember pleasant memories of her.
