Mark and Family,
We are so heartbroken over the loss of Carol. She was one of the first people to befriend us when we moved to Evanston. It was at one of the Wine Group get together’s. She was so sweet and her smile was so contagious! She was a wonderful friend and she will always be in our prayers and hearts.

Mark, Brittany, and family,
I don't know if you remember me, but I was Brittany"s 6th grade teacher. Carol used to come to Lincoln School to help out in many ways. I always liked your whole family as you were all very supportive of me. I hope you can find a way to go on with your lives and smile when you think of Carol Jo. May she rest in peace.

Sending heartfelt condolences to the loving family and friends of Carol Jo Ransdell. Losing a loved one is so very painful. May your hearts be filled with wonderful memories of the joyful times you have shared together. May you also find strength in the comforting words found at Psalms 34:18.

We look forward to the time when God´s Kingdom replaces funerals with happy reunions; a time when tears of joy will replace tears of sorrow and neither sickness or death will be (Isaiah 33:24; Isaiah 25:8).

Mark and family~Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. I remember Carol fondly from high school. She was always fun to be around and although I haven't seen her since then ,I see from her picture that she kept that same smile with maybe just a little mischief too. Cherish the memories.
